17- days until I report for school
2- appliances that have shot craps on me: the coffeepot and the iron
25- classroom chair pockets I am sewing for L's Kindergarten room (I have lost my mind!)
100's- times the Lady Bug has made me smile. That girl is a wild woman and in her own words, "I funny, Momma." And, she is.
50- dollars saved every month on our electric bill by not running the dryer. Yea for the clothesline!
1000's- things to do for school and the fall musical in those 17 days I have left *sigh
1.5- inches of gray showing (not much change)
3- granddaughters I have now-- ages 10, 6, and almost 2
4-5- hours I am sleeping a night (this from a kid who needed 10-12 a night, and as an adult prefers 8) *argh!
1- brand new coffeepot!
Have I mentioned 17 days left?
"Behind every successful woman is a substantial amount of coffee."
OK. There's a better chance of me making it through those 17 days and getting everything done now that I have a coffeepot that works again.
Where has this summer gone?
