And here we go...

Can I stop time right now? The month of May is going to be a busy whirlwind of a month, most of it revolving around band events with a handful of family events thrown in for good measure. My month looks like this:

05.05: Jazz Festival sponsored by Sonshine's band, I'm helping. All day.
05.10: Band Booster meeting
05.12: oldest nephew's graduation from college and subsequent induction into the USAF
05.13: Mother's Day and my birthday celebration
05.18: band award banquet
05.19: writers group and critique group meetings
05.22: spring band concert (which included booster meeting to vote on officers)
05.23: my youngest nephew's birthday
05.24: band trip, lasting 2 days and on which I'm going as a chaperone (eek)
05.27: my father-in-law's birthday
06.01: graduation for Sonshine's HS - he's not graduating, but the band plays Pomp and Circumstance
06.02: youngest nephew's graduation from high school
06.03: my momma's birthday
06.03: Cowboys Stadium event (and so it begins....)

And I have writing and revising to accomplish in between all that.

I'm feeling overwhelmed now that I've compiled this definitive list. Yikes.

Breathe, Jen, breathe. In. Out. Slowly. One day at a time and I'll get through it.

On that note, I have a couple of things I need to get done, so this is all you get today.

Happy HUMP day. See you Friday.

Wow, I'm exhausted just reading that schedule. May will be busy, but busy with good stuff. :) You'll definitely deserve some feet up margarita time in June.

and you are still renovating during this schedule??

We got back safely Friday afternoon - I'll email more later.
Love you Mom

Definitely, Regina, especially once my men are gone for the fireworks season. I can relax for a couple of weeks.

Hey, Mom! Not much renovating now, no. Just trying to accomplish small projects here and there.
