april?

so i'm trying to figure out where exactly this month went...what did i even do the past 30 days? i just finished off 13 reports for my 13 foster kids. i felt like i had just finished their march reports and suddenly it was time to do april's.

life has been busy, but not overwhelming. it seems every weekend has been filled with something and it's looking like it will continue to be like that through june. now we enter the time of weddings and graduations...which is fun, but by end of the next couple months i'll definitely be ready for a weekend filled with something non-social and something i don't have to buy a gift for. :) okay, who am i kidding, i'm definitely still taking advantage of the "hey mom, want to put my name on that gift too?" i plan to do that as long as she'll let me.

in other news i'm moving....again. it would be a crime for me to not move at least once a year. luckily this move isn't a huge deal...just like 10 miles from where i currently live. this move is exciting though, because for the first time i have my very own place, will all of my own stuff, and the privilege of decorating it exactly how i want. plus it's a nice place...so i'm pressured to get organized and somehow not be cluttered and messy. it's been fun picking out paint colors, stalking craigslist for things and seeing what all i can get for free. i have lots of fun ideas, so we'll see how they come together...seeing as many of them don't fit in my budget and my elle decor magazine, while amazing, isn't necessarily a practical model for me at this stage of life. i'm realizing i tend to have expensive taste, and i probably should have kept with my law school ideas if i want to support that expensive taste...so instead whenever i take my social worker self to court, i flirt shamelessly with the single lawyers. :)

i've had lots of fun weekends lately, but never take any pictures otherwise maybe i would have posted about them. but at the same time, it's fun to be elusive sometimes and not have people know what you're up to. lately i've been feeling like it would be fun to just ditch the blog and deactivate my facebook account. we'll see...
