100 miles an hour

That's how I feel about life these days.  I am working a ton of hours which is fabulous....not complaining about that in this economy.  And I have 6 kids home eating and making messes.

I want to blog more, but life just seems to get in the way sometimes.  I am trying to find balance this summer and not make the kids feel like they are working all the time.  I'd love to do more fun things, but we just haven't made it happen much.  Well, other than the free movies at a local theater.  We get there almost every week.

We are planning a camping trip for the end of July and beginning of August.  We'll be using my in-law's RV.  I'm so thankful that we will be able to get away.  We will be doing the budget route, of course, but cooking over a campfire will be a break from cooking in my kitchen.

And it's summer and we are just starting in with our farm food.  Again, I'm so thankful to have all the food, but it does mean some extra work in the summer.  But like Barbara Kingsolver says in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, it's just making dinner in advance.  I finally finished that book this morning.  I've been reading it for literally years.  I would misplace it or get busy and then pick it up again later.  I can't recommend it enough.
