4 more sleeps
To tell you how close the cottage is to the water, I am standing in the water to take this picture. I know, I am getting boring with my cottage talk. But you have to understand this time of year is like Christmas to me. It is when I get to spend time with my family. I am incredibly close to my sisters and while we speak almost daily I only see them in the summer. It is also the place that I feel I have time to be a mom without other commitments. Blabbity blah blah blah.
Okay enough of that, so my to-do list this week is meeting with prof about little project for fall, lunch with friend, clean house and garden, shopping, and PACK!!! My summer to-do list is study for pathophysiology, modules for practical, lose 13 pounds, and eat bacon. hmmmm how will I accomplish those last two? I'll have to get back to you on those two. Any suggestions on what anatomy/physiology to concentrate on to prepare for pathophysiology?
Boy Anchor won the bronze medal round of the lacrosse championship and Girl Anchor won 3rd as well in the 4x100 metre relay, she also placed 9th overall for the 60 metre hurdles both at the citywide championships. So all of our sports commitments are out of the way now, no early morning track practices, no racing around getting dinner cooked at 4:30 for lacrosse practice, swimming finished a couple of weeks ago so I am free there and teeth are cleaned. I don't know how some parents that I talk with do it, their kids are in so many things. A mom at lacrosse yesterday told me her son was on 5 sports teams (field and box lacrosse being 2 of them) over the past 3 months. I can't even name 5 sports (but then again lacrosse is the only game for me). This was the first year that Girl Anchor didn't take dance, I don't know how we would have fit lacrosse twice per week, swimming twice per week, track 3 times per week and everything else if we had dance too. When do people spend time with their kids aside from driving them to and fro from one activity to another? I also don't know how people afford all the activities. In the fall we will have swimming and field lacrosse and that will be it. Girl Anchor wants to join a more competetive swim team but that would include more extensive travelling and early morning practices. The Husband wants the kids to take tennis lessons too. Help me find the NO in me. I know I won't and will be shuffling Anchors to and fro until they are 18.
Take care, and have I mentioned 4 more sleeps until Christmas?!
