This is the day they call May Day, isn't it? Huh ... that may be what the rest of the country calls it, but I call it the first day of a busy month.
Here's the low-down on my May, if you can handle the truth: two graduations, one in Virginia this weekend, one in Boston the following weekend; two airplane trips, one to Virginia this weekend, one to San Antonio in two weeks; three straight weekends with my mom, a good thing, because I'll be needing the help holding on to my sanity; 11 people, number of family members I'll be planning for and leading around Boston for four days over Brian's graduation weekend; one weekend that is yet unplanned, but thank the goddess it's Memorial Day weekend, a long one; 17 days, out of the entire month's allotted workdays, during which I'll actually be in my office working; 2 big decisions need to be made, where we'll be moving this summer, and when.
I need a nap just thinking about all this.
Here is the avatar for the month, too. I'm digging the ladybug sweater, truly, and Ollie seems to be enjoying our little flower, backyard-y scene. It's still not really warm enough for capri pants and little shoes, but I'm holding out hope that the better weather is just around the corner.
