What have I been up to?

by Dani

I have a number of blog posts I've been meaning to write. Posts brewing in my mind. Pictures in my iPhoto queue. But I just haven't got around to it. It's been a crazy busy last two months. So what's my excuse? (Besides having 4 kids and homeschooling and managing a household, etc, etc)

Well, there was finishing up all the paperwork for the dossier and getting it to China. Seriously, this paperchase about killed me this time! Not sure I could ever do it again.




That's one big ol' stack o' papers! 


Then I've been processing more Fruit of the Yard. First it was the grapes (and I even gave half away!) 



Then the apples! (Which I am STILL not done with. The refrigerator is full of them and they are still on the tree AND I gave away a lot AND a lot fell!!) 

I also had to organize and prep and start our 2013-14 school year. A number of my pending blog posts have to do with our first 6 weeks of school. Also had to prep and plan for the two (yes, I'm nuts!!) classes I am teaching at our local homeschool co-op.


In the middle of all that I participated in three different children's clothing consignment sales. I had over 160 items to sell and made just over $200. Not bad. Best pay off though is the nice clothes I got for my babies. :)  

There was also the whirlwind trip to Daddy's high school reunion. Plus side of that the kids got to see Grandma.


Yeah, I'm tired now remembering it all! Things have slowed down a little, tiny bit but the holidays are coming.....  

I think I'll go hide now. :)
