summer's end

around here, we're getting ready to start grade 1. i am a little nervous and excited at the same time. i can honestly say that this was my best summer ever, being home with the boys and not having to even think about work was a dream. i was able to step back and really see just how stressful and chaotic our lives were before. and i am determined to not let it get that way again.
but the end of summer is just about here, and i am also starting a new job. next week. how did this happen so quickly? i'll have to change gears and get focused on work again, but i am thrilled that it will be based from my home (and still in the fashion industry). i'm already having a lot of fun fixing up my home office. here's what else is on my to do list:

go to the beach

finish up the back to school shopping

reorganize the boys clothing for school/fall

get a haircut

play around with my new iphone (yay!)

finish sewing 2 gifts that are very overdue

finish quilting and binding my lap quilt

i've also ordered this as a little congratulatory gift to myself. i can't wait for it to arrive. of course, there will have to be some kind of fabric purchase in the very near future to use with all of the new projects found on this disc. life is good!
