Sneaking on Summer

Last week was filled with me being grouchy and stressed so I figured that would make for poor blog fodder. The Kidlet has yet another sniffle so she would sniffle herself awake for a few minutes in the middle of the night, waking me up and then I would be awake for the next 2 to 3 hours stressing out about having to give notice at our beloved daycare to jump off into the great unknown of Montessori school and about how our one toilet in the house might fall through the floor (yes, I am crazy). The days following these sleepless nights consisted of me grumbling at my co-workers and spouse and drinking copious amounts of coffee. So there you have it. New week!

And the new project, my leave-behind assortment of fortunes with lucky color and lucky number to be left in various spots around town. Kind of fun, a little less personal than my drawings but much easier to deal with. I think these will be my summer project because in the summertime, the living is easy, right? And I also signed myself up for Andrea's summer postcard swap so I'll need to get cutting and pasting for that. I'm a little nervous as I've never really done anything like this before, but I made sure I had an idea for the cards before I signed up.

This weekend, I mowed my Mom's front yard. I've never mowed grass in my life. Yes, I'm in the tail end of my 30s and I have never mowed. In my defense, I've never had a lawn in my adult life. Kind of fun, really. Good exercise too. No, that photo of grass is not my Mom's lawn, but a professional job I saw while waiting for a stoplight so I took a photo.

And we are inching ever-so-closer toward vacation. It's looking like early June (can't be early enough for me). Kidlet already has her sandals and we are starting to stockpile toys for the long drive. I'm sure you'll be among the first to know when it is finalized.
