Can You Wake Me Up When September Comes?

Because August is scaring the behoohoo out of me.

We are going to be busy, busy, busy.  Included on the calendar in August are the following:

  • Pack up Squirrel in Pennsylvania and bring her home [YAY!]
  • Once home she is having her wisdom teeth pulled [Boo!]
  • Wallene starts band camp.  It is 5 days a week, 9 hours a day, for the whole month
  • Return Squirrel to college and get her all set up for her second year
  • Squirrel's band camp starts [reminder to Mom - get the flute repadded]
  • It's Squirrel's 19th birthday [YAY!]
  • Wallene starts High School. [Gasp! Does this mean I am getting old?]  It will be rounds of orientations, shopping trips [Boo!] lunches and lonely days.
  • Eye exams for everyone
  • Although Wallene's birthday is actually in early September her party with her friends is in August.
Now, I realize that the activities are the girls' but the coordination is Mom's job and the driving is Dad's - so, yep - it may not seem like a lot, but it is.  And I know I am forgetting something. Don't you hate that? :D

It's all good tho' - thank goodness we like eachother's company. heehee

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday. See ya' on the flipside Tadpoles.

I'm tired just reading that!! Mind you, August is filling up for us - Peter and Paul start back at college - well, back for Peter, 1st time for Paul. Peter and i are going to Skye for a few days to visit friends. Peter and Lou are going off on the overnight sleeper train to london, whizz round for a day and come back up on the sleeper the next night!!!!
All i have to do is find money!!

I never knew there really was Band Camp! Sounds awesome - and not so nerdy as they make out on American Pie or whatever movie that was. Or maybe you'd prefer it to be nerdy?

A lot of coming and going. Lots of changes coming up. Bittersweet.

I'm so glad my kids are grown. However, spending August in bed sounds like a good idea. It it hot out there.

I see what you mean about not looking forward to August my friend! It certainly is going to be a busy one. Lovely that Squirrel will be home again with you for a while though. Good luck with the organizing of it all!

Can't say that I miss the hectic days of organizing a myriad of activities and obligations in our kids' lives. Now THEY are up to their noses organizing the activities of THEIR children. HA!

i know, even when it is fun stuff or stuff for the kids, it's still a stress to organize it all and get everyone where they need to be. I always said it's like that riddle where you have a duck, a bag of corn and a fox and you have to get them accross the river but you can only take 2 at a time............

Juli said...

I don't even think I could list what August entails for us. :)

But this one time.... at band camp...

*giggles* That never gets old. :)

I have a feeling that even though August will be busy, you'll revel in every moment! Enjoy it all, despite how overwhelming the calendar may appear.
