1.) As much as I love those aimless days of summer vacation, the school year is probably a better fit for me. Even though our schedule can sometimes pick up to a seemingly relentless pace, the structure helps me be far more productive...and ultimately I am more content when things are getting done.
So with this in mind I made myself a little contract...a reminder of what is going to work best this school year. Implementing these seven things already has me feeling much better (especially considering it's Monday night and my schoolwork was done three days ago)
2.) Another bento lunch...my friend Laura taught us years ago that one of the best things ever is a baguette, some brie cheese, and roasted garlic...so that's what I filled Mac's box with (along with some turkey and chocolate covered pretzels). Not to brag or anything about what a wonderful mom I am, but Mac told me no less than three times this afternoon how good his lunch was and asked me to make it for him tomorrow...and the next day.
3.) And speaking of making things...I want to make some of this (that I found here)...
Can't you just envision some of this packaged up with a cute fall tag???
