It is good to be back on board for Anti-Procrastination Tuesday!  Because I missed last week, today is double up your links day so please feel free to link more then one under each section.  

I am eager to hear and see what you have been up to.  I took some time off the blog last week to just focus on and enjoy my family.  We left for a few days to visit Mall Of America, IKEA, and a water park.  It was such a great time, but I feel like I’ve been playing “catch up” ever since we got back!   I’ve been busy doing lots of hair, (I am a hairstylist and even though I do not work in a salon anymore, I do hair for some friends and family), celebrating my 14th wedding anniversary, getting laundry caught up after our trip; cooking for a bunch of teenage boys for an event with my husbands work, keeping track of my kids and a slew of neighbor kids that keep our door revolving when we are home.
  This is the first week where I have found myself longing for the predictable schedule the school year brings. I think having “chill time” on our mini-vacation, then coming home to busy life, has left me ready for structure in our schedule.  My personality does much better with structure, so I’m hangin’ on to fleeting moments with my kids before school starts and trying to tell myself “downtime” will come. Today was a “get things done” day, as the rest of the week we have something going on every day and we will not be home much.  I got my house in order today, so now I am ready for the crazy week!  Sort of:)
I’m also longing for extended writing time!  I’m not sure how some of you mom bloggers do it in the summer, keeping up such quality blogs with kids home.  Yes, I am blogging, but barely, and with posts that are a bit thrown together and far from quality! 

I am happy with  my progress on our Summer To-Do List.  Many things on the list are ongoing, so I have not crossed them off, but I am doing them!  I am thankful for the list, it not only keeps me on track, but is an encouragement to see that we are accomplishing things that are important to me even though life is at a frustratingly fast pace right now. 

One of  my favorite things on my summer list is read at least 3 books.  I am at the very end of “3 Cups Of Tea.” I have LOVED this book, it is so inspiring and has taught me much about the way of life in another part of the world.
Another one of my favorites on the list is have cousin sleepovers.  We have cousins that live an hour away, and I make sure each one has a separate sleepover with us in the summer.  We are down to one more cousin, and it has been a joy to have them!
I have yet to take my early riser on a surprise breakfast picnic.  Tomorrow may be the day.  We’ll see how early I get to bed to make it happen!

All right, let’s get to linking!
Looking forward to seeing what you all have been up to!!
Be encouraged, Be Inspired, And Get Something Done!

    I am your newest follower. I could use a kick in the butt with procrastination. I am a teacher on summer break so I don’t feel the pressure now, but will in a couple weeks when school starts up. Stop by my blog. 🙂

    Thank you so much for hosting anti-procrastination Tuesday, it helps having someone to be responsible too!

    I absolutely loved Three Cups of Tea. I think I will read it again, it’s been about 2 years since I last read it.
