A week full of errands

I have had busy weeks and I have had VERY busy weeks (like a week full of sports events, music lessons, classes and doctor appointments). But this particular week has been an interesting one, because it was full of errands I had to run – for every day of the week!

No, I am not being dramatic. I literally had to run errands for every day of this week. I had stuff to do on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday that had me jumping in and out of the van, going from one place to another, or mailing one thing or another.

It was pretty much a crazy-busy week. And, yes, I have had those. Sure. But this time, it was crazy-busy in that I had lots of errands to run!

We are in the process of getting ready for “back to school.” That means organizing closets, dressers and cabinets, as well as getting the kids everything they need! They go back to school the first week of September and we want them to be ready.

But we are also taking care of things we couldn’t get around to before. Like mailing packages, sending out pictures and stuff like that. We are also buying things we need that we could not get before – like a new dishwasher! (We have been struggling with a broken dishwasher for some time.) So we’re taking care of that business, too. (After the school year starts, we won't have any extra money for stuff anymore, because all our money goes to the schools and the kids' school needs!!)

But why am I even blogging about this?

Because it’s the first time I have had “errands” to run for every day of the week! I usually have to run errands two or three times a week. Not five times! But that’s how it was this week. And that kept me pretty busy, too. I didn’t have a chance to do things that I wanted to do or needed to do because I was away running errands.

But I did take care of SOME things. With some help! My husband was the one to finally ship a couple of boxes I had sitting in the garage for months. I was finally able to place an order with the Books N Bears store for a book I wanted (many thanks, again, to the lady I spoke with for her patience!), and I did finally donate some old children’s books to the Little Free Library.

So there is that.

I am glad I got so much done this week but, wow, it sure kept me busy! I thought I was gonna try to slow down and relax this summer?? Well, I certainly hope that’s what I will be able to do this weekend. Then tackle a whole ‘nother busy week when the next Monday comes around! I might as well start getting used to having a busy week, because summer vacay is almost over.

It always feels so relieving to get things done, doesn't it? We save a lot of running around for Tuesdays. We do date night on Monday, and then business and errands on Tuesdays. We have become much busier with planning the wedding, it feels like we have so much to do in just a single week. Haha! I'm glad you got your dishwasher! Yay!

Thanks for commenting. I try to keep running errands to a minimum each week but there was a lot of stuff to do and things that needed to get taken care of during that particular week. We were so busy trying to wrap up loose ends and get things done before summer vacation was over. I am glad we were able to. It's a good idea to limit running around to one or two days of the week but yeah sometimes that will change when there are other things going on. Good luck with getting everything in order for your wedding. I'm so excited about it and can't wait to attend! And oh, we didn't get the dishwasher after all. But we DID get a new toilet. I am glad we got rid of the old, leaking toilet. I still hope we can get a new dishwasher soon.
