Today I am remembering a craft we did a month ago, when the days seemed very leisurely and carefree.
We sat at the kitchen table and messed in this.

Yes, that is the ooey-gooey paper mache paste of flour and water.

We made masks out of milk jugs.  I thought they turned out pretty neat.  Especially after being painted.

We made a big mess, but the kids had a lot of fun making these.  

Today, my mind is going in a million directions and the last thing I want is a paper mache or any other craft mess to add to my growing to-do list.
School starts in 8 days, I have two signing classes to teach next week, and I am due in about 6 weeks. That's all manageable, right? Except that we just received the news that we have to move.  Apparently one of our landlord's is going to be moving back here.  
Suddenly, I hate renting.  

So now I am trying to find boxes, as I have all of two.
And, we are trying to find a place to live.
Oh, and can I complain about one more thing? Donovan is running a fever.
Wish me luck, I kind of feel that I'm going to need it.
