Our next house isn't due to be finished until some time in August though if we're lucky, so I might lose my mind somewhere in there. We'll be in temporary housing, and I won't have access to any of my art stuff... and maybe not even my computer.
I'm trying to figure out how to plan some fun vacations in that time since it will be summer break. I know moving is insanely stressful, but if we're out of house and home anyway, it seems like I should be able to plan some fun getaways in there... right? Totally sound logic! Back me up here, I'm trying to make this argument to my husband, and I need all the support I can get! And suggestions of where to go would be good too. I have Universal Studios on the list for example, because I want to shop in Diagon Alley. (Because I'm a geek. I own it. If there was a Hobbiton there, I'd be all over it too. *ahem*)
I thought about perhaps renting a little beach house for a week, thinking that would be a nice relaxing time for the kids, and something unique for us since we're beach-less in Vermont. And then I saw the rent costs. (I could buy a CAR for that!! Seriously?!) So, now I'm trying to figure out how to make this exciting and fun and worth the time. Especially since this is our last summer with my daughter, really. Next summer, she'll be packing up for college. *sniffle*
Other than that, and my excitement over Outlander and Game of Thrones being back? Yeah, I'm as boring as ever! My cat has been getting more and more blatant about nap-bragging (you know, that's what they do when you're tired and wish you were still snoozing in bed, and you walk by and see them in YOUR spot snoring away?)

Oh, and he's been hoarding my kindle too...

I've been working to meet a magazine deadline. I finished one piece that depicts domestic violence (it fit the piece I was assigned):
And today I'm desperately trying to finish this piece, but I have a long way to go:
|The piece I was assigned started out with a Jack & Jill theme, so I went with it.|
I've been getting all my workouts, but struggling mightily with my food. I may or may not make my weigh-in goal for round two of my DietBet on Saturday. We'll see. I've been veering towards weighing more than once a week than not, because it seems to focus me a little better right now when that is something that seems to be severely lacking.
My husband is coming back tomorrow night for a whole week! I'm excited. Of course, we'll spend that time fixing things around the house, but I'm hoping we'll get in some fun things too!
How is everyone else?
