7 Quick Takes Friday (Episode #1)

— 1 —

I really have no idea what this 7 Quick Takes thing is all about, but I am giving it a shot. I guess it is a weekly record of random thoughts for other self-diagnosed sufferers of adult-onset ADD. (Or maybe it’s child-induced ADD…either way, I think I have it.) It sounds like a fun way to wrap up the week (If I remember to do it!)

Um, yay! Spring…finally! Hubby went out of town back in February and remained down in the deep South while the six young-un’s and I battled through “Snowmageddon,” “Snowpocalypse,” or whatever the heck else they want to call it here. Now that he is returning, the skies are blue, grass is green, and the temp is in the 70’s. Neat.

The Twins officially made it through Jr. Prom…complete with photos, corsages, “promposals” (what is UP with THAT?) and a date who, according to my daughter was a “complete gentleman.”

Sorting, sorting, sorting! Preparing for a move is all about sorting. Even after 19 years as a military brat and nearly 20 years as an Army wife, I still get overwhelmed by the task of sorting to prepare for a move. For some reason the other people in the house don’t seem to think that they should assist me in these efforts. Laundry continues to accumulate, grocery shopping has to be done, papers keep coming home from school (what happened to “going green,” folks?) and the little ones still want to get out every toy they own…every. single. day.

Preparing for a mission trip. One of the twins will be leaving next week to attend a mission trip with her school. In St. Lucia. (Seriously, does this look like a “mission trip” destination to you? Oh well, at least I know they will be staying in a convent :-). )  I apparently need to go buy t-shirts, shorts, mosquito netting, and about 50 gallons each of bug spray and SPF 4000 sunblock.

Happiness Project. I am LOVING this book. I have developed a passion lately for studying happiness and how we go about achieving this goal. Is happiness the goal in itself, or is it the means, the catalyst, by which we reach our other goals? Ah, that is the question.

EEEEK! Hubby’s Birthday is in One Week! And I have NO idea what I am doing for him. (Well, that’s not entirely true, but this is a G or at least PG rated blog so…) But I have no idea what to get him. What do you get for a forty-whatever man who just learned how to fly Apache helicopters? I mean, a new tie doesn’t really cut it, right?

Well, there you have it…my first “7 Quick Takes Friday”, also known as #7QTF on Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by, and leave a link here if you’d like to do a “7QTF” (Look at me getting all cool with the lingo!)
