What I've Been Doing

I haven't posted to my blog lately because I've been playing FarmVille on facebook. Thanks a lot, Cynthia, for getting me hooked!

I have also gotten back into indexing and I finally indexed another 150 names this past week. :)

We finally finished school shopping and I got the girls enough clothes to allow them to express their individual styles without spending an over-the-top amount. I'm just glad it's done because spending all that money REALLY stresses me out!

I've been canning the stuff from our garden. I have finished 14 jars of tomatoes and have another big bowlful to work on with plenty more tomatoes still ripening in the garden. We attempted to grow and bottle green beans this year, but all of our beans turned out gross. They were kind of hollow and tough. I think we picked them too late and also didn't have a very good variety. My mom and dad were kind enough to give us some beans from their garden to bottle this year. I don't even like green beans and claim to be allergic, but Athena and Jeremy both gobble them up.

Unfortunately this week hasn't been warm enough to go swimming, so we have been spending a lot of time at home finding other things too do (FarmVille). LOL I decided this last week of summer I would let the kids get in a lot of playtime. They have played outside a ton, played with friends, enjoyed the DS, and the playstation. I hope they have had a great kid summer and will be ready to go back to school.

Sounds like you've been busy even without a pool to hang out at.
We're laying low as well--I'm hoping the kids will be bored enough here that going back to school will look like a treat!

Rob has tried to get into FarmVille, but I am just not into computer games! But it looks fun.

I'll take some tomatoes if you need to get some off your hands. I'll trade you for yellow squash and zucchini. :)

I'm pretty sure your kids have had a great summer! You guys always seem to be doing something fun.

I need to index again...I haven't done it at all since we moved. I've been terrible! I kind of got out of the habit, I think. Thanks for reminding me.

I've been playing FarmTown and am also hooked...I keep thinking about how much I could get done at night w/out it. It's disgusting. Sounds like you still get plenty done, though!
