May 2016 - Monthly Wrap-Up

May 2016

  May was a little crazy at my house.  I honestly didn't even know what I was doing most days in May.  I feel like I keep complaining about how busy we have been to you guys but it is the truth.  I really don't like the busy pace that my life has taken and I am eager for things to slow down.  If I can just make it through the summer, my daughter will be old enough to get her license and can start taking herself to some of her commitments.  I am on the countdown!

Blogger Thoughts
      • I was absolutely horrible at visiting and commenting on blogs this month.  I am so very sorry to all of my blogger friends and I will be trying to do better in the future.
      • I didn't come close to posting every day this month but I posted at least 5 days per week which is my actual target so I am okay with it.
      • I am behind on my reading and if I don't speed things up soon, I don't know what I will be reviewing on the blog.  
      • I did have a post in May that was a little different than what I normally do.  It was just a top 5 list but I may try to come up with some new ideas to share soon.

            • My oldest daughter spent the whole month of May in Hawaii.  She turned her vacation into a very long stay.  I am eager to have her back where she is supposed to be so that I can stop worrying.
            • My puppies are such a handful!  Molly is our troublemaker.  She turned 7 months old in May and she reminds me of a 2 year old child since she is constantly into everything.  I love my dogs but juggling 3 can be a bit much at times.
            • My youngest daughter finished her freshman year with straight A's.  Now that she is done with school,  she has filled her social calendar to the point that I can't keep up with it anymore.  I wish I had half of her energy.
            • I got to go see the Dave Matthews Band in concert at the end of May.  I am a HUGE Dave Matthews fan and even drove all the way from Missouri to Virginia Beach to see them a couple of years ago.  To say that it made me happy is an understatement.

              1. You did have an eventful May and that happens. Let's hope for a slower summer for you so you can get back to your books. You read a handful that I added to my list. :)

                Have a good month of June, Carole!

              3. It may have been crazy busy, but sounds like it was a good month. Hope June is calmer and better.

              4. Crazy month, indeed. At least you got to read some. I had a tough May so let's hope for a better June for the both of us. :)

              5. Oh my gosh, May does sound like a very, very busy month for you, Carole! I'm glad your oldest daughter will be coming back home soon. It's always strange when our children are far from home, but I guess we kind of better get used to that, no?
                I hope you'll have a more quiet month of June, and that you'll be able to settle the dogs a bit, too. I guess I'm a bit afraid Freddy will be more of a rascal in a few months than he is now... at 4.5 months he's quite a handful, though ;)
                Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.
