My Day Thus Far

I had convinced myself that the girls needed some summer clothes. Then I just spent an hour folding and hanging clothes with another load to wash. Ha!!!! I now know better.

A 2 12 hour visit to tantrum city - not so much fun! Raina has done so much better but once she starts she shuts down and you just can't get through to her. Now she's happily playing at her Sleeping Beauty vanity yet my nerves are severely on edge. I haven't even taken a shower and I have to pick up Salem in 45 minutes. What a morning.

And I want to share a fun organization tip. This is a most amazing way to organize Barbie stuff. Now to get the rest of the Barbie stuff on there. A regular shoe caddy would work but I liked the different size pockets, the fact that it was pink and would go over their door and it didn't hurt that it had Barbie on it. For only $3 more I figured I would make it fun!

Wish me luck through the rest of my day. It's only a little after 11 am, I need to hurry and shower, get Raina read for swim lessons (her first after being sick all week), pick up Salem, get lunch, go to swim, run to the post office and bank, go to speech and hopefully make it to the gym.

I hope I'm not too exhausted to enjoy my girls night out tonight.

Our Intentional Summer

For the past two summers I've wanted the girls to have fun, but have us stay structured so we have fun but do the things we want to do and not forget or get sidetracked. Plus it's easy to get bored even with swimming etc. So a friend of mine suggested this which she saw at the Whatever blog.

So Dad, the girls and I just made our own! :) Salem especially was excited. Of course she may bug me daily about what we're going to do. When I asked Raina what she wanted to do all she suggested was to play at Sonic (at the one with the playground). :)
