Busy Bees

A daughter excited about tonight's 8th Grade dance, end of the school year field trips, gifts for teachers, wrapping up loose ends...

Lots of things going on for the kids.

Then there's outside of school: This morning is the last soccer game of the season, and this afternoon is a big bounce house birthday party and dinner for the youngest (dinner?? Yep, the mom's feeding a large group of kids dinner).


Mid-terms for hubby who works all day and then comes home and has to study.


A million and one things to wrap up this week because I'm headed over to see the baby grand next Friday...alone this go around because the kids can't miss school. This will be my first for-fun trip alone in many, many years and hubby's first time home alone with school duty and overnight dad duties, ever!!!

My second oldest will be flying up from Florida too, to see his mama, SIL, big brother, and little baby niece so I'm excited to see him too! I miss that child! :)

Busy busy bees.

It's good when lots is going on though, it means we're happy, healthy, and on the go.


Totally unrelated to this post, but a couple of shout outs to share nonetheless:

If you haven't seen Manzanita's short but sweet post on the bucks, go take a look. I'm 42-years old and have never been lucky enough to see such a cool thing.

Tammy held a full frame of bees! You go girl!!!

And Lizy and Jacqueline both have graduates, high school and college, respectively. Congrats to your young 'uns, ladies. :)



Wishing you all a productive or lazy weekend, whichever makes your heart sing. :)

I've been beyond overwhelmed with end of the year activities this year. Both kids have plays, field trips, HUGE projects and other stuff. I don't understand why they can't spread this stuff out a little more so we're not running around like crazy for the last 3 or 4 weeks of school.

Dana said...

It's definitely a busy time of year. Enjoy the madness!

Cyndi Calhoun said...

Have fun in your travels! This all sounds wonderful! :)

Raising Reagan said...

Wow you do have a lot to do before you get to go visit your new grandbaby! I am beyond thrilled for you!!

You plate is full and then some. It's a good thing though and your trip to see the grand is awesome. Enjoy.

We are on the back of our boat this morning and intending to have a quiet and lazy weekend. We love those kinds now and then.

Have a terrific day. :)

Poke The Rock said...

Kenya G. Johnson said...

Back at 'cha. I would prefer lazy but it's gotta be productive. YOu have a wonderful weekend too. I hope we'll see pics soon ;-)

Manzanita said...

It's a busy time when you're a MOM. Thanks for the shout-out on the deer. They may look a little exciting but they are a pain to live with. I had to go out yesterday and spend another 2 hundred $ for more posts for fences. Yuck.

Lala H said...

i wish there's 48 hours in a day for us to be able to do everything :)

Christy Maurer said...

You sure have been busy! We are hitting a busy time too. Daughter's graduation next Sat. and son's summer baseball starting again!

We used to live that way, but then the kids grew up.

My Journey With Candida said...

I don't know how you keep up Rosey. I would be chasing my tail in circles trying to figure out what I was doing next.

Camille said...

I hope the business is fun and not too crazy! You must be so excited to see your new grandbaby. :)

Jen said...

You are busy! Hope you enjoy your weekend!

~ Noelle said...

Chatty Crone said...

I love the way you give shout outs to others. And I had a garage sale this weekend. What did you do?

Binky said...

You sound very very busy! Take time to breathe!

Ramakant Pradhan said...

Busy bee indeed! Have a great weekend!

Kristi Maloney said...

Wow! That's a lot for one weekend. You see, I was "so busy" yesterday, that I didn't get over here to your blog until today. I like a break from the laptop some days too...God forbid! lol We had to drive into Boston for an orientation for my son's summer camp and then we had a funeral...so yesterday was busy for us. I hope your daughter had fun at her dance!

mail4rosey said...

The last few weeks are def. pretty busy!

mail4rosey said...

Luckily it's all good madness. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks Cyndi. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Lanaya. I thought she was going to be in high school by the time I finally got to see here...hehe

Long stories, two cancelled trips, but this one is all mine. :)

mail4rosey said...

Lazy weekends on a boat sound so ideal and lovely. Knocking on wood your weather cooperates!

mail4rosey said...

True 'dat ;)

mail4rosey said...

Lazy weekends are sometimes THE best weekends. :)

mail4rosey said...

That makes them not pretty in person, I'm sure. Sorry to publicize your current aggravation, lol. Really! :)

The shots's still amazing to me though...I'd have probably made so much noise gasping and ohhing nad ahhing that they'd have run for cover before I could have got that picture.

My Journey With Candida said...

So have you slowed down yet any? You know summer isn't even here yet and you being the busy bee you are.... just might run out of honey.

mail4rosey said...

Sometimes, I totally agree!

mail4rosey said...

I hear shots all through hunting season, so someone must be seeing them, but it's not me.

mail4rosey said...

Hopefully the house will survive because I already know they're not going to keep it clean. >:/

mail4rosey said...

Congrats to your daughter!!! Baseball is fun, but VERY busy!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks Melissa. It should be fun-busy stuff. At least it has been so far. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, baby visits are the best. :)

mail4rosey said...

You and me both...better than the alternatives for sure. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for having me. :)

mail4rosey said...

We opted for another when the big ones were well on their way out. We begged for busy (and boy did we get it). :)

mail4rosey said...

I do chase my tail in circles, it makes me dizzy enough to have an excuse to rest for a minute when it's busy like this. :)

mail4rosey said...

Very. Glad she won't be in high school by the time I get there too. She's almost 3 weeks old already!!

mail4rosey said...

I saw your weekend's a busy one too, so ditto'ing it back to you. :)

mail4rosey said...

Hurrah for a house full of kiddos! :)

mail4rosey said...

The list is long and I feel productive, woot! Today it's church and then yard work...we've finally got a day w/no rain to do it (knock on wood).

I'm coming over to see if you've written about the sale, I laughed out loud at your message about it. :) My kids beg for a yard sale, I never do one. I know who'd end up doing the hard work there if I did. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Breathing's not a bit overrated. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Wishing you the same.

mail4rosey said...

I'm sorry you had to go to a funeral, Kristi.

Sending over hugs.

Leslie @ Violet Imperfection said...

mail4rosey said...

I'm headed to church here shortly, and then yard work the rest of the day for me and whatever child/ren want(s) to be out there helping. That'll wear me out, but make me happy. :)

Tonight we'll finish up the plants (thank you Pinterest) we're giving to the teachers, and gift wrap the teacher aid's baby shower gift. Busy's not bad, and I don't like honey all that much anyway. ;) :)

Happy weekend to ya, Terry!

mail4rosey said...

I'm so excited too, I'm so so excited. :)

Thanks for your visit, Leslie. :)

Ann Jones said...

We have been so busy too :) The madness can be fun though!

mail4rosey said...

Agreed. :)

Sandy VanHoey said...

You sound like my oldest, always have so many things going on between work, kids in sports, etc. Busy can be a good thing

mail4rosey said...

Busy can be good...so long as we make sure we don't get burnt out. :)

Thank you for stopping by to comment.

Colette S said...

Definitely a busy bee.
I'd love to know how dad did :)
Mine hasn't had the luxury of being home alone with the bubs as yet.

And have a safe flight to see the precious little one and your other loves.

I agree about being busy and happy, healthy and blessed.
*HUGS*

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

busy busy but the grand baby....that's huge!!!!

mail4rosey said...

Dad won't know until the professor gets things graded. You're sweet to ask. He always frets and then gets high grades anyway. ;)

mail4rosey said...

My son called yesterday and said to hurry up and get over there because SHE'S getting huge, lol. It's fun to hear him excited over his little one. :)

Suzan Sweatman said...

Oh how nice for you Rosey - to get to see the oldest and the youngest at the same time :)
Have fun - takes tons of photos of baby!
XOX

mail4rosey said...

That's a good point, it will be the oldest and the youngest. Awww. :)

My youngest is not at all happy that he's got to miss a visit w/THE youngest this go-around. ;)

alissa apel said...

I swear the summer time is just as busy as the school year for us. Maybe even busier.

Have fun see that baby and your adult children.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Alissa. I'm looking forward to all of the above. :)

Henrietta said...

Sounds like my month! We've been busy with Tech and high school graduations, end of school activities and I've been running kids to and fro fro things like crazy!I'm looking forward to summer vacation which starts this Thursday -- Wooo! I hope you enjoy your trip!

mail4rosey said...

Our kids our out next week and I can't wait either. :)

Thanks for the well wishes, that'll be my favorite trip of the summer, I already know. ;) You're so lucky your little cute baby grand lives so close by!! :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

You have all been very busy Rosey! It is great to be busy with good times and celebrating with family. I am very happy for you and your family.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Judy. The schools are keeping us hopping, that's for sure!! :)

Theresa said...

Rosey, you and me both. Busy, busy, busy. If I can make it through this week, I'm golden. I haven't had much time to do anything around here because all of the end of the year school activities going on. Have a great trip!

mail4rosey said...

Moms everywhere are relating. :) Happy end of the school year to ya! ;)

myshelomitashop said...

Busy..busy...my week wasn't that busy, but this weekend we are moving out so that will be hell of busy :D

mail4rosey said...

Good luck with your move, I hope it's seamless!

Carla said...

I'm happy you get to go see the grandbaby soon!

We've been busy around here lately, too, but it seems to be coming to an end now that school is out. We will still have plenty to do with classes at the Y, homeschool stuff, and various other things.

I'm also still busy right now planning our vacation next month. We'll be in Missouri for quite a while. At least my sister will be here, so I don't have to worry about finding a house sitter this time. :)

mail4rosey said...

A whole month of vacation with a house sitter sounds INCREDIBLE!! lol

I'd say enjoy, but I already know you're gonna. ;)

Happy to see you visit. I've been checking your blog, glad to see you out and about. :)

Sonya M. Jones said...

Dang Rosey! ...and I thought I was busy. lol My daughter is had her 8th grade dance too. So cool we have daughter's the same age. We will be able to share teenage woes.
