So, what happened to May?
Wow - busy month so far. Not much activity in the Mom Cave for the first three weeks.
The first weekend was spent with our Boy Scout Troop out at Camp Runamuck. I almost backed out, when I learned that the other female leader who was planning to go had a last minute emergency arise. So I ended up being the only female on the trip... 20+ preteen & teen boys, plus our other leaders. It was colder than expected but a fun way to relax for the weekend. Had a similar experience last summer when I went to Camp Durant for Summer Camp, but there were other women at camp then, both on staff and as leaders with other units.
Mother's Day weekend we spent around the house and I spent the next week finishing up a grant proposal with one PI and laying the foundation for one of our July submissions with another team.
You may remember that in February, I took an impromptu trip to Denmark to spend time with my Mother as she closed up my Mormor's home (Mormor is Mother's Mother in Danish). So I spent the third weekend in May moving furniture. A quick flight to Tallahassee to spend a long weekend with my parents and sister and her family and then spent a very long day driving a 15 foot rental truck home.
This past weekend I spent at the North Carolina Quilt Symposium - but that has been featured in several posts already and more to come.
Now, I'm faced with needing to reorganize my craft room/Mom cave again in order to get it back to useable space. No rest for the weary... this coming weekend we have a Troop Merit Badge College back at Runamuck and Ice Hockey tryouts for next season.
