{reallife} july madness

I kind-of imagined our summer being lazy {have I mentioned this already? hmm}. Swimming and water fights and popsicles with friends and reading books outside in the shade. I forgot. Summer is never lazy.

We have been having so much fun that I am reeling from it all, feeling like I need a week of solitude and some bonding time with my house.

I just did a brain dump as Tsh at Simple Mom recommends. My list of things to do is longer than I thought it would be. Those things were all swimming around in my brain, causing unrest and anxiety.

My brain waves: remember to make that Picaboo album :: put eggs on the grocery list :: get mom a birthday present :: finish editing photos from yesterday and tag grandparents on facebook :: find time to mop the sticky floor, please :: the budget needs some tweaking

And so on.

I feel so behind in so many ways. And I'm the type to want everything tied up with a neat little bow. Well, maybe that was my old self. Sometimes I'd like to be her again. But for now I'm the crazy, leave-all-the-jobs-undone-so-we-can-go-have-fun person.

Each of these fun photos represents one thing left undone around the house. But we don't have to look at it that way.

What have you been leaving undone so you could have fun?
