“Kids do not float”

Kids do not float

...but feathers do...

(I have been so busy recently that I’m just trying to tread water to stay afloat.  Are you kids busy, too?)

About Kathy

I live in the middle of the woods in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Next to Lake Superior's cold shores. I love to blog.

    Kathy, as I am retired, I’m not part of that working mom, treadmill routine. I highly recommend it. Retirement that is. Though I’m 61 with a 23 yo still at home, so it’s not all sweetness and light. 😉 My “busy” is, walking dogs, playing with dogs, house cleaning, cooking, gardening and socializing with friends … and worrying about money.

    I’m more then treading water, but not quite swimming laps. Sort of in between busy. Enjoying the sunshine too, hope you got some!

  3. Those life vest loaners are such a great idea!
    Not REAL busy here… just the same ol’ day to day busy kind of stuff.
    Hope things slow down again for you soon!

  4. A life vest would be welcomed!
    I think a life ring would help too.

    Keeping my mind afloat…..

    Terribly busy. An unplugged vacation would be wonderful. 🙂

  6. I had no idea just how busy life can get – and my boys aren’t even involved in any extra-curricular-type activities yet!!

    I was a working mum for many years and vaguely remember how manic my life was then but they have flown the nest and are busy with their own lives. I am glad all those hard years have paid off as they come often with their partners from choice nothing else. We have a great friendship. So hang on in it is all worth it. 🙂

    A bit busy with back to school, but not too bad! Long lists of things to get done in the garden before winter (oh no – there’s that nasty word!) but not feeling too much pressure yet. I’m very gifted at procrastinating – one of my greatest gifts!

    Hi Kathy, I’m glad you’re staying afloat and like your images/suggestion of buoyancy. My every-day-busy is pretty easy right now, schedule is my own and I’m very grateful for this, knowing it is temporary.

    I love the POINT that’s being made and can’t possibly be missed in the first photograph!

    Sounds like some of you kids are busy and others are lazily treading water and some of you are kickin’ and splashin’ to stay afloat. This is one of my busiest time of year at both the school and the township. Hugging goodbye to Kiah at the airport later today, as she returns to NYC. It’s been a wonderful month… Thank you all for stopping by the blog even when I don’t have the time to post a proper entry. (OK, never mind, maybe this is a proper entry all by itself.)

    Most times I feel like I’m treading water, with my head barely above the waves….time management is not my forte. I can’t even keep up with my favourite blogs.

    I love the pfd loaner station. How cool!

    Just busy trying to heal … requires lots and lots of sleep.
    I love fun signs with a message … I did a post on a sign at a bridge road construction site a long time ago. It had a sign “Take Turns”. Maybe that would be a fun one to repost as I heal.

    And those lucky gulls can float on water, walk on land and fly through air… So many possibilities!

  16. Kathy says:

    Thanks again, everyone! I thought that loaner station was the coolest thing. Oh, and the seagull feather, too. Bearyweather, you get better really soon.
