Work in shifts into high gear

Budgets are due, strategic plans are due, we have to make some big decsions before I leave for vacation on the 16th.

School shifts in to high gear for my high-schooler

It’s the last-ditch effort to make it out of the ninth grade (’nuff said)

 My 20-mile Out of the Darkness walk is next weekend

Yes, I will be walking 20 miles from dusk till dawn in Manhattan to raise money and awareness around depression and suicide. Needless to say, I won’t be sleeping much that weekend!

 My house will become a youth hostel again.

My 2 nieces and their best friend will be back. Things are always fun when they are around – teenagers always contribute an interesting dynamic to the household.

We leave for a 2 week vacation on the 16th

I haven’t even thought of what to bring, not to mention how I will be able to afford to feed everyone. Looks like there will be a lot of Raman

Somewhere in between all of this, I have to clean my house. Where is that maid when I need her?
