A good start to summer....

Summer is off to a good start. I've got my one week writing intensive next week and the instructor insists all five of us in the class need to shoot for sales as soon as it's done. I've been extra conscious of dribs and drabs going out and have a daily chart showing what we spent that day on a big pink sheet for the refrigerator. This is just a nice little extra boost to remember how things add up. My goal for summer is to live like we're in a cabin on a lake - i.e. less stuff to care for, more outdoor activities and simple meals, etc. To this end, I've continued cleaning out clutter even beyond the garage sale and it always feels good to see less stuff as I look around the house. My biggest weakness is books and educational games, but I'm trying to tell myself I don't need to hold on to them. We can use and enjoy them and then let them go (they are all purchased at garage or thrift stores). So the goal is the final revisions for the book and just enjoying my wonderful kids for a long, happy summer, living as simply and frugally as possible...;-)
