I have stopped using my paper calendar and started using my Google Calendar. Yes I am jumping into the 21st century!! So when I planned all these fun outings, I did remember to add them to my calendar (with reminders). However I never stopped to look at the week as a whole. By Friday afternoon, I realized that I may have overbooked myself. Thank goodness for vacation starting on Saturday - or so I thought!
We decided to travel to Williamsburg for a week of relaxing at Greensprings Resort. Thinking that entertaining a 14 year old all week might be a tad difficult - Bman was allowed to bring a friend.
Looking back, I realize that this might not have been my brightest idea. Bman is an only child. At least at my house, he is. He had spent a week at Scout camp with 20 other boys. He then had to spend a week with another friend. Can we say people overload??
By Wednesday the honeymoon period had ended. We had the One Up contest going. There was so much testosterone being flung about that ducking and covering really wasn't an option. Thank goodness for knitting and for teenagers sleeping until noon everyday!! I got about 4 hours every morning to sit quietly and knit!

Now I am back home with no more travel plans for the summer. I hope to finish my Jordan sweater before school starts. Because once August gets here, I have a feeling my knitting time will be taking a hit as I will .be busy planning for my first year as a 5th grade teacher. Thank goodness for the Origami Sweater! Mindless 1x1 ribbing for miles!
