Someone make this ride SLOW DOWN!

Life has been steaming down the tracks like an out-of-control freight train. Busy, busy, busy. Kids are having all of their end-of-the-school year stuff. Keri Lynn is getting ready to graduate! Sniff. I've been applying for teaching jobs.

And still there are the bills, laundry and dishes. They don't go away! No matter how hard I ignore them! Ack!

Keri Lynn just has a few more days of actual classes. Next week, she'll just be going to graduation practice, and the rest of the time she's planning on sleeping in and resting for graduation, trip to Jamaica and trip to Japan. Exciting times!

In the midst of all of this, while I'm ignoring bills, laundry and dishes by playing Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook, Kathleen comes up to me, "Mom, you got to teach me how to knit."

She explains that she has promised a friend at school to teach her class how to knit. Has she ever knitted before in her entire life? She has, if you count the knitting loom. But really, she just knows how to crochet. I taught her how to cast on and how to knit, and she has been working her rows rather well. By the end of the week, she just may be ready to teach that class how to knit.

I've also been ignoring bills, laundry and dishes by watching Doctor Who seasons back to back over two consecutive weekends. No wonder I'm not getting much done. But it's been fun!

Our weather has not decided to stay warm yet. We've had some days in the 60's lately. And had to pull out sweaters a few times. What is up with that? It's May, Mr. Weatherman!

Summer is kind of a blur right now as far as what I'm going to be doing for work. I'm hoping for that perfect job to just fall into my lap, but somehow, nothing so far!

Time to get kids to bed!

Fun times! We are frantically getting ready for graduation stuff. It is going so fast. There is no slowing it down, though.
