I'll take one order of 'Routine', please!!


Life will get back to 'normal'...and a little more normalcy will follow next week!

School starts tomorrow for one kiddo.

Next Tuesday for the other.


It's been a VERY busy summer.

We traveled. We swam. We played softball. We took piano lessons. We worked. We fished.

Oh and we SWEATED!!!

It's not quite time for the sweat to dry up, but by golly, it's time to calm down.

Bed times will be earlier...even for the parents.

We will have schedules.

It will help me SO much in every department. My housework. My work-work. My health. Summer has been a blast, but boy has it sidetracked my eating/workout habits! Having the kids in school will allow me to get more acquainted with a new friend...a road bike. A 'Lance Armstrong' type of bike for me to take up cycling. Hubs and I had a few days this summer to ride together...17.5 miles is my longest ride so far. I plan to venture out on my own...right after I learn to change a flat by myself. I can't wait!!

Now....I must go pray for a cold-front...

I'm trying to get back into a schedule, too, only I homeschool my son and have to work around that.

Sounds like you have had a full summer.

Good luck on the schedules and road bikin'.

Road biking is my FAVORITE way to exercise. LOVE LOVE LOVE it :) I have topped out at 26 miles. Have fun!

We love our bicycles! It has been too hot to ride but tonight I hoped on with kids and baby in babyseat and rode! It amazes me how those 6 year old legs can keep up!
