May is here.
I've heard stories about May being busy, but I've never really experienced it until now.
A high school and a college graduation seem to be the causes. That can't happen every year, to every one, so that must not be why May is so busy. But it is. Yikes.
Dh and I sort of felt like crying and running away when we put everything (we hope!) on the calendars! At least I did. Maybe he's not so much of a wimp as I.
Friday I packed all morning and took my little American Heritage Girl off for a Mother/Daughter Camping Trip. That was fun. We ended up at a beautiful state park with lakefront sites because the park we were scheduled to go to had been hit by the wicked tornados last week.
Sunday we got up early, broke camp, and went to Mass. By the time I got back to the house, unloaded the car, put everything away (or on the lawn to dry), and started the laundry, I could barely keep my eyes open.
I think I woke up 2 hours later.
Yesterday we were getting back into the groove, and I took the kids to the pool for P.E. Can you believe our pool is OPEN? I know that's a shock for some folks who are up north, but it is. And then we noticed Meg's "mosquito bite" on her neck has a ring around it. Like Lyme Disease. Ick. So we're off to the Doctor this morning!
This is a great month to, once again, work on cultivating a daily Rosary habit.
Is your Month of May busy?
Do you practice the Rosary habit during May?
