Back to WHAT!?

Summer is in full effect in our tiny nook of the world with lots of changes for our family as well, and quite has been CRAZY! I decided to head back to work {after 5 years at home} and why did I decide to do this over summer break? Umm yeah. Anyway...the kids are doing great with our mix it up sitter schedule and granted, it is only part time, and they {we} enjoy the break from each other. But it really has put on hold a lot of my crafty creative~ness at home. My garden is weed-ridden and the flower beds...well...I keep hoping those really tall things BlooM!! Perhaps part of our new outdoor jungle growth is because we have been enjoying our summer to the fullest. Lots of pooltime, water toys, sprinklers, late night fires & smores, catching fireflies and many many suppers outside. Which is why, I had a *smallish* freak out realization the other day. Did you know the stores have their Back To {GASP!} School things out!? How did this happen? I am the crazy lady with my kids backpacks packed and ready to go, like...a week after school is OUT. I am seriously torn between giving in to my sadistic obsession of smelling pencils and filler paper or continuing my frolicking good time summer. And I want to call out the stores and say, NO! You are wrong! We still have blah blah blah amount of time before we need to worry about that, but guess's like 5 weeks away. So, I'm sitting here blogging, eyeing the Lands End 'BTS' catalog and rocking out to some summer tunes. I think I will choose to live in denial for just a bit longer....after all, They are only kids ONCE : )
