The past few weeks have been so busy! Scratch that – the whole summer seems to have been a busy time for my husband and I.
The last two weekends Chris and I went to his cousins to help them dig up their backyard. They have a strange drainage problem … their whole backyard slopes back towards their house! To make matters worse the backyard is filled with clay soil so that made digging really hard!
I also celebrated my birthday last Sunday so that kept us busy too! Hmmm I should write a post about the great meals we had on Saturday on Sunday as part of my celebration.
Now this weekend my husbands brother is here from Chicago. His teenage son is participating in a weekend long hockey tournament. So guess where I’ll be all weekend … sitting in a cold ice arena!
Then … next weekend it’s my brother in law’s birthday and a family friend out of town wants us to come to her house for a dinner party. This means probably staying overnight, but we can’t bring our dog because our friend (the one that had heart surgery last fall) hates dogs! That’s a dilemma because we can’t leave the dog alone for most of the weekend. So we either have to figure out something for our dog, not go … or what usually happens when this friend invites us to one of her parties – just my husband will go.
We have things going on into early October! I think by the time all of our planned activities are over I’m going to need a holiday! Maybe I should look into one of those Myrtle beach vacation rentals that I keep hearing about. Sounds good to me!
How busy are you these days? Did you have a busy summer like I did? Are things settling down now, or are you just as busy with parties, family obligations and other things as you were all summer?
