Status Report, August

Sitting...out on the back porch. A gorgeous morning.

Drinking...coffee, black. More like guzzling it.

Moving...S L O W this morning. Thinking it'll be a second pot of coffee kind of morning.

Recovering (still)...from vacation. Transitioning back to the real world can be exhausting!

Planning...to post a recap and pictures from the DC portion of our trip and soon.

Reviewing...today's to do list. Pick up schedule and pay fees at the middle school. Pregnancy center. The usual tasks of transporting kids, doing the dishes and attacking the laundry.

Wanting...to sit on the porch and drink coffee instead.

Stressing...over school starting next week and the fact that I haven't purchased the first pack of paper nor pencils. School supply shopping: on the agenda for tomorrow.

Surprised...that school starts next week but, then again, it seems like it's time. The kids are restless, the mommy is longing for a few minutes of solitude--yep, it's time.

Reading...Counsel from the Cross: Connecting Broken People to the Love of Christ. Just started it last night. I can already tell, this one is going to be good!

Eager...to begin reading Womanly Dominion for the girltalk bookclub. I placed my book order late so I will be a little tardy since the bookclub starts Monday. Anyone else reading along?

Catching up...on the reviews needing to be written for 5 Minutes for Books. I'm so behind!

Missing...what's going on with all my friends whose delightful and thoughtful posts have backlogged in my google reader (672 of them, to be exact).

Pouring...another cup of coffee.

  1. Drinking more coffee than usual today, too, and I'm still moving slow. I think we're on some kind of time warp here - this morning is flying by and I can't seem to figure out how it's as late as it is already.

    I had to mark a lot of posts as read in my reader and just start over. I don't like to do that, but, there's only so much time. Especially when it's warping by as fast as this morning seems to be doing at my house today.

    Have a great day.

  2. Slow here today, too. I actually didn't make coffee, but ran to Starbucks this morning.

    I have Womanly Dominion, but haven't started it yet. Vacation Bible School is interrupting my reading (and reviewing) ;-)

    As for all the blog posts..."Mark All Read", friend!

  3. My transition back to the work world yesterday after 10 days off were shocking to my system to say the least. A little better today. Only needed a few cups of coffee to get going today. :v)

  5. P.S. I'm gonna order Womanly Dominion - so you may hear from me if I can't figure out the book club thing.
