It is nice to be home again, but I already miss the beach, the warm weather, and the sunny skies!!
I will be back to my normal routine here soon.
Baseball starts this week. We have games scheduled for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Three of those are away games. I am responsible for getting the team fed for all away games, so that means I am going to be busy with that.
Is there ever really a time when things slow down and do I really want them to. I like being busy. It just seems that things all hit at once. I am going to be getting ready for an open house and graduation for my youngest son. That is going to take lots of planning. I am going to keep it simple. Last year parents were getting bands and renting tents so they could have outdoor entertainment. One lady made to go boxes for all her desserts. She had everyone taking home to go boxes because she had so much food. It just seems to me that everyone is so busy outdoing everyone else on everything any more. This goes back to those prom invitations where you have to go overboard and outdo everyone else. Oh, don't get me started on that again! Here are the previous posts about that. #1 and #2.
We also have to get ready for prom. My son has to get a tux ordered, but we have to get with the girl and coordinate that.
Here I thought I was going to get back to a normal routine. I guess maybe this is my normal routine, something going on all the time. I will probably be lost when my son goes away to school.
I did all these things back in the 1990's with my other children and I am telling you it was so much simpler. Why has everything gotten out of control?
I guess I need to go back to the beach and just lay in the sun and hang out. Maybe in the fall after my son has moved to college that would be a great idea? Oh I forgot, he will be taking all our money to college with him.
I guess I can afford a lawn chair and lay out in the sun at home, but by fall it will be too cool. Okay, I am out of ideas. Anyone else have any great ideas for me?
Also any suggestions on feeding 25 people cheaply for the post game meals. I am looking at doing sandwiches, cookies, chips, and water or Gatorade. They have to take the food on the bus with them after the game so it has to be portable.
All suggestions appreciated!!!
