What I Did Over Summer Break

Hi everyone! It's been soooooo long since we've talked.  I hadn't planned on a summer break, but it happened anyway.  No one told me that three children under 10 in one house during a summer would be so much work. NO ONE TOLD ME.

But behold, happy days are here again!  Noah just started kindergarten (full day, praise the lawd), and Jon's back for fourth grade, so it's just me and Lily-bean until Christmas break!  Woo to the hoo... now I can watch all the Dr. Phil I want and there's no one to stop me.  NO ONE!

Here's a recap of what I did over my summer break, and there will be some follow-up posts about a few things, because I love to over-elaborate on things.  That's just how I riggity-roll.

1.  I completely obsessed about how to style a bookcase.  OB-SESSED.  For reals.  I finished it though, and I'm sort of happy with how it turned out.  Sort of.

2.  The hubs and I put together a swing set, and our marriage survived to tell the tale.  IT'S A MIRACLE.

3.  Lily started scooting on her belly and then crawling, leading me to contemplate sewing Swiffer pads to her clothes.  I'm not kidding, I really thought about the logistics of this idea.

4.  I finally figured out what to do with the space above my kitchen cabinets.

5.  I found a great website for planning home and gardening projects... and it's FREE.  FA-REE.

6.  I became a bit addicted to selling things on Ebay.  It started with just a couple of things... and then it snowballed.  MUST. SELL. EVERYTHING.

7.  I found out that Lily is not a complainer, even if she has a raging ear infection.  A tough cookie, that one.

8.  I found out how to child-proof the dog.  It's not easy and not convenient.

9.  I almost had a nervous breakdown about meal-planning, due to picky eaters.  I found a mini-solution though, which has helped that nervous twitch I developed.

10.  I turned 35.  HOLLA 40, I'M HEADED YOUR WAY.

Did you do anything noteworthy this summer?

I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter or Instagram!

I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
