But I don't have time to say it just now.
What I will say for now...
...I finished my Plath cardi in time for the reunion! Yeay! I'm really pleased with it, even if I do not look pleased in this horrid photo. (Haven't had time for a good photo shoot with it yet, so just look at the sweater and not at me with the weird look on my face. I am, however, wearing the dress I was making the sweater to go with.) As it happened, I never even needed to put the sweater on until I was on my way home that night. Too hot. Figures. LOL Eh. At least I have a nice little sweater to wear this fall!
...our trip to Chicago was fantastic! Very full, lots of fun. I have pictures...lots and lots of pictures...and I'll share some of them just as soon as I can get them processed.
...summer is quickly coming to an end. We'll start our new school year on Monday. Our first year of high school. Eep! I'm ready, though. I think. No, I am ready. It's just a little overwhelming if I focus on it too much.
...as happens every year at this time, I'm in planning mode. Planning for school. Planning for the fall. Hand in hand with planning mode is introspection mode. It comes on especially strongly at this time of year. Maybe it's a force of the season changing? I don't know. I do know that it makes me want to become quiet, and still, and turn myself inward in many ways. Hopefully, I'll manage to strike a balance...inward/outward.
...I need to get a better grip on my time. Short of finding a way to add extra days to the week, I need to make better use of the 168 hours God's already given us weekly. Earlier bedtimes and less time on the computer are key, I think. We'll see how I manage those.
