Each year, May seems like a mad dash to the summer finish line. As temperatures heat up, it seems like every other day is a thunderstorm waiting game. Swim lessons, end of year school events, spring sports wrapping up, and for some reason in our family, there are a lot of birthdays. We have decided to add to the May madness this year by putting our house on the market.
Everyone has been pitching in. Our kitchen underwent a much-needed update, but that has left us without our main LIVING space for three weeks (instead of one). We are far off routine, the kids have watched most of their toys being boxed up, and the dog thinks — well, I don’t know what he thinks, but I’m positive he’s confused.
I’m looking forward to renovations being completed, school being out for the summer and June taking a warm, lazy turn. So, how does one lady keep her eye on the ball in the midst of choas at home? Horse racing season of course! Mother’s Day weekend brought refuge in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Weekend is almost here, and with any luck, I can have a We Sold Our House Belmont Stakes Party!
