Last week we pulled out one of our thrifted sheets to make a little summer skirt for my 10-year-old.I've been going through my sheets and cut 4 more FQ bundles. I'm listing them in my shop. I have to announce here that mailing packages may get spotty for a couple of weeks, so if you see something you want to buy, please understand now (and forgive me later) that you might not get a Mr McFeely speedy delivery. If you buy this weekend, I will get them off by Monday. After that, just rest assured your beautiful sheets will be delivered by the next week. Our summer continues to be wild and crazy fun. In a fit of euphoria at the end of the last round of swimming lessons, I signed-up for a second session. This was a major first in the history of the Smart family. The weather and the pool have been awesome. It has also been fun to see the kids progress. And get some good exercise. And get a little cranky because they're tired and because bedtimes have been later, but getting-ups have been just as early. Unfortunately, I'm not getting the exercise I need, just the lack-of-sleep/cranky part.
In other positive developments: last week I took all 4 kids [at the same time!] grocery shopping at Wal-mart and no one was crying when we left, myself included. This is a very positive sign that we might have other food options for dinner besides canned fruit, rice, and ground-up wheat from the food storage by the end of this summer.
