Sleep Deprived....

My oldest son has to have tests ran and he has to be sleep deprived for these, so Mom is also sleep deprived. No problem keeping him up til after midnight, but I don't think it is going to be easy when the alarm goes off 4 hours later & I have to get up too!

I have of course been planning what are we going to do for 4 hours til the Dr's appointment.
I have decided we will go on a very early morning walk all over the neighborhood, exploring every street, maybe I will have him count steps! Now my youngest wants me to wake him up also so he can go too! He is not a morning person, so I think he will change his mind once 4 am comes! We'll see... After our long walk, we will fix breakfast of eggs, sausage & toast. He can't have anything sugary so that rules out pancakes with syrup, toaster strudels and most of the cereals. He of course is excited about the breakfast, all his favorites & my hubby (for the first time in our 17 year marriage) me fixing him breakfast before work, a luxury he only gets on weekends! After breakfast, I figure some time in the shower will hopefully continue to keep him awake before we head off to the Dr.

After the tests are over, we both are planning nap time!

It's Summertime!!!!!

Well almost!!! I have been enjoying my summer so far! Last week was spent on vacation at Sunset Beach for our annual family vacation. Perfect weather, nice house & my 11 year old
broke out with chicken pox!! Yep he has been vaccinated, but didn't stop those pox! We were still able to spend time at the beach, kayak in the marsh behind the the house & fish.
This week I have been working on making inventory for upcoming craft fairs, a few special orders and some homemade peach cobbler...... yummmm!! Nothing like SC peaches!
I got into the Holiday Craft Bazaar in Shelby, NC by the Jr League coming up in October. That was happy news! Cleaned out a few cabinets, cleaned up my work area, boy I can make a mess fast! And boy do I have ALOT of paper! That is my next little project, to get my paper back into their storage units. I am bad about pulling out a couple of sheets til I find the one I want and not putting it back til I have a stack that is 6 inches tall!
Will have to post a story on my work area!
Have a great summer, go get you some peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream & enjoy the sunshine!
