It’s been over a month since school started and we have, more or less, established routines. That’s good. Still, there are the ‘specials,’ like overnight camps, parent-teacher consultations, information nights, chess tournaments, orienteering meets, Outward Bound, Team Fear… You’d think that I’d be a pro at managing these by now, but I am getting a bit frazzled working these in between Cub Scout meetings, after-school activities, and home renovation.
Home renovation. At least three months of living somewhere else while our place will be gutted, torn, and stripped. On the one hand, I am excited, but boy, it’s also overwhelming. Meeting with designers and contractors, getting all these ideas, praying and hoping that they keep to schedule, that they do a fantastic job. Looking for short-term rentals. Deciding on choices that we will have to literally live with. Fun, but a kind of gritting-your-teeth kind of fun.
So. I will try to post at the very least once a week for Wednesday Around the World, but beyond that, I might not be here much. I will still try to visit you guys as much as I can, though to keep up with your goings-on and to check out your lovely photos!
