New Year's Resolution

Had my first root canal yesterday. Why is it that I dread the dentist so much I forget to call for like forever? My dentist is a blast, so funny and all the hygienists are so sweet, so why do I put it off so long? Because I want to add a root canal to my list of experiences? Well check, that's done and I have to say not so bad. Pain no worse than getting a filling, just really time consuming, almost 2 hours tilted in the chair with my head practically on the floor. Don't really want to do it again though so I think calling the dentist more regularly is my new resolution. (it doesn't matter that New Year's is still almost 5 months away right?)
Trading the dentist's chair for the driver's seat today as the kids are busy starting up sports activities again but definitely a preferable choice over a root canal.

Hanging with the dinosaurs

Spent some time hanging with the dinosaurs this weekend at the University of Michigan Science Museum with the family. It used to be a favorite of everyone's but after some grumbling they all found something to get excited about while there and were soon running from exhibit to exhibit.We are definitely enjoying the last few weeks of somewhat unstructured time before adding the school day back into the mix. I say somewhat as we have had some type of sports practice or summer school class to attend through out the summer. Not too much time for a very long getaway this summer. We managed to squeeze in 2 quick camping trips between fund raisers for high school cheer and football car washes and picnics. Next summe,r now that we kinda are in the know as to the schedule of summer activities for High School sports I am planning getaways ahead of time now that we know how limited we are. A whole actual week of camping!
Its hard to believe after next summer all 4 kids will be in school full days! Such an unprecedented amount of "free" time between the hours of 8:15am and 3pm. My goal and wish is to be able to really make Laurie Lou a viable business and further develop my product line and dare I say get to the point where I could actually hire someone else to run the parts of the business I don't excel at? Well, a girl can dream can't she?
Short term goals? Well that should definitely be to clean and organize my sewing room. I'm too embarrassed to even show you all what it looks like but maybe I'll do some before and after pictures. Hope the rest of your summer is relaxing and full of wonderful memories!
