Credits earned, fees paid, locker cleaned out, family arrivals, graduation party, family departures. We survived.
The last of the company left yesterday. Two weeks of family coming and going leaves its mark.
Getting back into a routine is the hardest of all.
Alyson is officially done with high school and is now spending her summer working two jobs in order to save money for school. After a visit to her college campus on Tuesday for orientation, she is very excited and so are we.
Believe it or not, I did not spend the entire graduation ceremony in tears. Maybe I'm fooling myself, but so far, there is no sadness, just excited for her upcoming journey. When her car is packed and she is pulling out of the driveway, that might be another story.
After two weeks of non-stop running and entertaining of out of town family, I'm finding myself completely alone in the house this week. Alyson is working every day, the two younger girls are in a community ed summer camp and John is back working days. I've found myself sitting around wondering what the hell to do with myself even though there is a very large garden and greenhouse that needs my undivided attention. Procrastination, I am a master.
I'm looking forward to getting back to my posting, my exercising, my quiet time. First? The final touches on the Bee Swarm story with pictures.....right after I surf a few more of your wonderful blogs and have at least one more cup of tea.
