Focus.

I got none. Can't seem to finish a darned thing lately, or come to a conclusion on... anything.

Craft room: Cabinetry/countertop dealio screeched to a halt a few days ago, and I can't figure out how to go about getting the next step done. Anyone who is more brave with a circular saw than me is welcome to come over and help!

Blog: has been seriously neglected, obviously, as I've had the same design and blog header for almost two months (gasp! It still says MAY!) I'm going to lose my whopping readership (what is there, like 4 of you?) if I don't post something new and exciting soon...

Father's Day: ?? Yeah. Nothing happened there. My lack of focus has manifested itself in a complete lack of ability to come up with any gift ideas or be thoughtful whatsoever. Dad, and Carl, you both know I love and respect you like crazy, right?

Wedding plans: Is it better to receive a bigger gift, and only have your aunt come to your wedding, or would you rather have both your aunt AND uncle come, eliminating the possibility of any good gift that might be in that envelope? What are you going to remember in the long run? Personally, I'm leaning toward the heavier envelope...

Diet? Hmmm... not so much. I've settled on a whole lot more exercise lately, instead. In my mind, at least, everything seems to be tightening up, although definitely not shrinking. It's certainly not changing those numbers on the scale. Oh well. There's a whole other blog post in the works, in my head, which is full of confusing numbers regarding this subject. Sigh...

Why can't people spell definitely? Or know the difference between "lose" and "loose" and understand how to use them properly? I don't get it.

See? Told you I couldn't keep focused.

SQUIRREL!

Girls camp: Oh geez, why did I agree to this? Can't get my mind around it, or my heart into it. Will I need a flashlight? A coat? Will I have time to read a book? Am I going to be able to stand being around all those teenagers for 5 days? Are they going to listen to me? This seems like the wrong time to be trying to wean myself from Coke Zero... What are those leaders smoking, thinking I can teach 100 girls how to swing dance? Am I driving up there? Where's Lomia anyway? Ugh, I'm already anticipating missing my bed.

Scrapbooking: Yeah, I'm supposed to be making a sample chipboard birthday banner for July's project. If I had any idea what papers to use, I could assure you that it's going to be adorable, but alas, can't make up my mind there either...

Is Amberly's tendency toward indecision rubbing off on me? Ack!

Dinner: Where should the focus be? Eating balanced meals with an emphasis on veggies that my kids won't touch? Or trying to come up with, and stick to, some kind of budget? Or coupon shopping and eating whatever's cheap? Or trying to keep it simple and throwing mac-n-cheese and hot dogs at everyone? Or, trying to make kids try new foods, and starving them in the process? Seems like I jump around between all these categories on a weekly basis... how bout you?

Sigh, it's way too late, once again, and again, I feel like I've accomplished next to nothing today. Good night.

But you did accomplish something and now I don't have to worry about my YCL shirts. I'm telling you, drive with me, I'll need someone to complain to at the end of the trip and finally, I have no compassion on you, you got yourself in to this camp mess, I tried helping you, but you let your niceness get in the way. By the way, if you drive up with me, I'll get you a whole case of Coke Zero or just give you my keys so you can sneak off to sonic to get us much needed ice cream and drinks! T-minus 4 days and counting, we can do this!

Oh, Nick, that was cruel :-). Shellie, I swear, Jackie told me she had a young married couple to teach the swing. Sorry you got into this, but one thing for sure, you will have fun. You get to stay in the leader cabin where you have access to a bathroom without going outside. Now,that is living.

What a blessing it will be to be with the youth of the church for 5 days. It will be a wonderful experience and I wouldn't think that there would be a need for too much "complaining" on the way home.

Always fun to pop by and see myself about fifteen years ago . . . that is without the crafitness, or the blogability, or the boundless energy. . . oh well then . . . I guess you're already about fifteen years beyond me! Love to the Carters!

Tell Nick Amanda saw one of those car window stickers the other day. . . and we thought of him.
