So hard to focus, but looking forward to summer...

My attention span today appears to last approximately 20.9 seconds at a time. *sighs* Not conducive to getting a lot of work done. But it is a beautiful spring day outside, there is lots of family stuff going on, and my list of knitting and crochet projects for use in distracting me is growing by the nanosecond. Thus, I just can't seem to keep my mind on the dense tome I'm supposed to be writing a review of. Such is life.

I had a wonderful visit with my grandmother yesterday at the hospital. It was just her and I, and we gabbed it up for nearly 3 hours while my knitting needles clacked happily. My grandmother is a very devout evangelical Christian, and I always love her anecdotes.

"Yesterday, this pastor that I'd never seen before stopped by my room. He came in and said 'Excuse me, I'm sorry for intruding, but the Lord just told me to stop and visit with you...'"

She's precious. I plan to go see her again this weekend. Her bypass surgery should occur within the next 4 days or so.

Today, I'm so distracted I literally can't sit still. I've been invited to a baby shower, and my knitting plans are full steam ahead. I'd rather be doing anything other than staring at this book that I need to review. *sighs*

I've also been thinking about our summer plans quite a bit. Hank's pre-k graduation is coming up in mid-June, and next week we have his kidnergarten orientation. My baby! I'm going with his class to a local amusement park in early June, and I'm terribly excited. I'll try not to chaperone his high school prom, but for the time being, I'm really enjoying being involved in his school activities :)

As well, I mentioned before that I've been looking to become more involved in our parish, I was just waiting for the right opportunity. I scan the bulletin each week, but so far, nothing has been workable with my schedule. Last week, I noticed a flyer for a new Vacation Bible School program starting up this summer. The Director of Religious Education is looking for volunteers, and I phoned on Monday morning :) So, in late July, I'm going to be taking a week off from work so that I can volunteer for the program (Hank will also be attending). It's only 9 am - noon, so in the afternoons we'll make a staycation of it and do some fun summer things, like swimming and other play dates. I'm really looking forward to it.

*looks back at book* *wants to kill self* *sighs* 3.5 hours to go...
