Back to School

Shelby started her final year of High School yesterday and so far no complaints about her classes or fact I think she's going to love her senior year. This year will be a busy one with filling out college applications and graduation stuff to get ready for. Her spare is right after her lunch which gives her over 2 hours of free time each day... sure wish I had that...hehe.
The house is quiet now as it's just Miss Pearl, myself and Koko. I already miss my road trip buddy (Shelby)! I guess I'll have to save the road trips for Saturdays and Sundays.

I was planning on getting some much needed housework done and start my Fall decorating but I've been hit with a nasty sore throat and cold. I don't mind letting the cleaning wait, but I'm so anxious to get my Fall stuff out. 
It's funny....when I was younger and before I had children I was a clean freak - the whole house got a going over every single Friday - it would take me ALL day. Now that I'm older, having a spic and span house has become less important. I'm more interested in spending every minute I can with the kids and grand-kids as I've learned over the years that time is way more precious than a sparkling home.


  1. You are so right that senior year will fly by , it always does. I totally agree with you about spending time with kids ,that is so much more precious then a sparkling home. Can't make memories if you are to busy cleaning all the time. :)
    Enjoy the rest of the week and I hope you feel better soon.

  2. Sorry you aren't feeling well. I agree, spic-n-span isn't as important as making memories! Hope you feel better soon :)

  3. Connie~ hope you get to feeling better~ A wonderful year for Shelby~ so exciting!!!
    enjoy your day~

  4. We are not there yet... just two years away but I know it will be here soon enough! I hope Shelby has an awesome year! And I hope you get to feeling better soon! It's getting to be homemade chicken noodle soup weather... I had to make some last week and it was so delicious, yum! I would make you a pot if I was closer to you. Take it easy girl.
