The Well Appointed House
A sunny and cheerful wardrobe is in order, as I spent a lot of last week prepping and painting, wearing my I-don’t-care-if-this-gets-ruined cast-a-ways while supervising a lot of boy activities. Fortunately, I was able to get a number of items crossed off my to-do-list while still managing to squeeze in a few trips to the park, the circus, the movies, a couple of haircuts, along with sharing time with friends and family. I guess it was a vacation after all ... at times it certainly felt like
a roller coaster ride (and other times like
being stuck in a clown car).
I never get tired of seeing this quote (it is everywhere these days, but was originally designed as a morale boosting poster during World War II). It is a favorite mantra that has served me well, especially
during school vacations : )
