I have missed you! We have been so busy here the last week or two. We have done 14 university interviews and have to more in the coming weeks. My daughter will have to narrow it down to 2 or 3 favourites then we will make official visits to the campuses sometime in September or October. These meetings have eaten up so much of my summer! Thank goodness we are going away soon. It has been utter chaos trying to get everyone together for holidays. The oldest can only get two days off of work which do not coincide with DN2 days off between tryouts for both the National Hockey team and the Provincial Hockey team. Does anyone else have this trouble with older children? Trying to get everyone together just for a few days has been exhausting to say the least.
Our weather here has been very rainy. No picnics or outings, really. Perhaps I should be utilizing this downtime with craft? Mmmmm? Could there be a little surprise in the works? I am also starting to get things together to go to the country. I always pack some nice rosy sheets to take along in case I dislike the furniture or if it is leather (sticky humidity + leather seating = well you get the picture). I also bring a few blankets and of course our favourite pillows with our vintage pillowcases. As a result, once I get there and arrange things to my specification it almost looks like home.
There is a George Carlin skit called "stuff". Whenever I pack, I think of this routine. That is me. I have to have my "stuff" around me to feel comfy, cosy. Are you like that when you go on holidays?

Will pop back when I can. And thanks for taking time to read my little bits.
