More good reading weeks! We also got to spend some time with hubby’s family Memorial Day weekend. One of his cousins got married and we traveled to Knoxville to celebrate. It was an absolute blast and we wish them many years of happiness! ❤ I’m buckling down and getting caught up on blog work. I would like to get far enough ahead that I only have to sit down maybe once a week or so to work on the blog. I’m going to take it slow again this summer, but I’m also sticking to my schedule. Hoping if I can get enough work done in the next two weeks, I’ll be ready! Hubby’s military schedule is all shades of crazy this summer, so it’ll mostly be me and the kiddos on our own. Sucks, but it is what it is.

I didn’t do as well the last two weeks as I was hoping, but I’ve gotten a good amount of work done this week to get things back on track! I think I’m well enough ahead now. I got a lot of reading done this week, but virtually none done last week. It happens. I have two kiddos who like to keep life unpredictable at times. Like now, as I’m writing this, my toddler is emptying the toy bin searching for something. Joy! Haha
