Today I am . . . 

  • Visiting with my sister and her kids, who are visiting from New York City for three weeks.
  • Taking the kids to go swimming, since my older son has to be there anyway for lifeguarding.
  • Taking the bus downtown so my sister can get her haircut at Barber-Q, where the skills are high and the price is low. ($12)
  • Gonna hit up a Goodwill or two.
  • Off of work all week until Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
  • Planning arts and crafts projects.
  • Excited to hang out with someone who shares my exact same interests!

Crazy fun, Wolk-Stanley style!

Recouping from Vacation Bible School last week combined with a Saturday of laying wood flooring.
Still sore from said flooring.
Excited about my new plan to squeeze a few more pennies out of our already lean and mean budget.

Sisters are the best!

“Excited to hang out with someone who shares my exact same interests!”

You sound so wonderfully happy! I’m glad your sister & family are visiting you from so far away, and that you’re all having fun together.

I have a niece who lives 700 miles away, and she’s the only person in the world who share my interests (and I, hers). I thought of her immediately when I started reading this post, and now I’m missing her more than I can say. I’ll have to plan a trip back there for next year.
