Six Word Saturday

Busy trying to reclaim my life.

It's been over a week since I posted. In that week I've given 2 TAKS test, worked concession duty, watched 3 little league games, sat through 4 practices, completed 4 crossfit WODs, dipped 3 dozen strawberries, attended 2 birthday parties, and finally, today, took off an afternoon to rest. Then returned to the ball park for a 6 inning nail biter that lasted till 9:45. Remind me when I get to do my stuff again?

I am counting down the days (17 if you're curious) till it's nothing but pool-side reading and popsicles. When I'm not fighting the morning commute to drop the young un off 2 blocks from school. When flip flops are de rigour and I don't have to wear a horrid picture ID around my neck. When the hours will be punctuated by a lifeguard whistle and not a school bell.

Oh summer, please take me away!

Join in the fun of Six Word Saturday:

P.S. Here's an update on my brother. So excited to see his progress.
