"These happy golden years are passing by, these happy golden years." Laura Ingalls Wilder

This week finds us (my family) in the practice mode for the start of school next week. To those of you with jobs outside the home, this practice is with you each day. But as a stay at home mom, I tend to let "things" relax over the summer as far as time schedules. By the end of the school year, I detest time tables, but by the end of summer, they're my best friends! Just yesterday I discovered that Nathan is not officially enrolled in school (oh, my!) ... so off I was to the school office!

On the home front, I ordered garage doors, floors, kitchen and bathroom tiles and got another quote for siding and the roof. All of the selections are starting to PULL together nicely.

I posted a GREAT cookie recipie on my Cooking- Previews site ... kid and husband tested and approved!

You are a brave lady to attend to all the detail on your house. Sounds like you are (With your husbands blesing)the head contractor. :-) Just curious, if I'm not too nosey. Who is hanging your garage doors?

I was always sooo glad for school to begin and soo glad for it to end...mostly because of the schedules thing.

The start of the school is always high with emotions isnt it? Glad for it to start - then in a short period of time you wish it were time for a break!
Seems like your DH has a great contractor in you! Maybe you've found a new calling to add to the list of all the other things you do! There's a new side job for you=contractor!

I love how efficent you are!! Just the opposite of me the procrastinator. When I get started its overkill...but if I can delay..=) actually its enjoyable to get things done..just don't pin me to a schedule...please. I'll have to check out your cookie recipe. I'm glad for you that things are moving along well on your new house. What a blessing that must be...
