Is it summer vacation yet?

by Valerie Ipson

I'm so busy I still haven't gotten around to procrastinating. I think it might be next on my list, though.

I've done some writing on my novel, I've done some reading too. I've done a lot of laundry (as the mountains of clean clothes will attest--apparently, I've done no folding of said laundry--again the mountains attest.) I've done a lot of wedding planning with my daughter, and a lot of Girl's Camp prep--vinyl lettering for 38 shirts among other things. I've given a mother-daughter lesson on Mother's Day. I've been to a temple open house with 60 youth and back, I've helped host a bridal shower, and even cleaned my house for the event. I've gone on a 3rd grade zoo field trip. I've attended a daughter's senior awards program. Still to come in about a week and a half's time is the wedding and Girl's Camp and a high school graduation, too.

No one finishes a novel in May.

Just saying.


  1. Ok I'm tired now myself and it's 7:30 in the am...yikes.

  2. Yeah, I thought I was tired when I woke up, but now I'm beat. Good luck with the next few events.

  3. What an exciting time for you and your family, Valerie! Just think of all the things you will be writing about later. Exhausting, yes, but oh so exhilarating at the same time. Congrats ahead of time on the wedding and the graduation! Woohoo!
