OBSERVATIONS: I want to go back and live last week. Can I say that? Last week we had so many things going for it. Deliciously cool weather, fun, and a few days with no deadlines or laundry.
Summer is truly winding down (though you'd never know it by the hellatiously hot weather we've had this week.) Still, school starts next Tuesday, and so it will be back to business as usual for the kids (though not so usual for Cole, who begins middle school and a whole new chapter of his life.)
As I plow through work this week (lots of cool stuff on the horizon, class-wise this fall), slowing down to do my Project Life pages really does remind me to be grateful and as present as I possibly can be.
Here are my pages from the past week:
Aside from being up at our family cabin for Sunday and Monday, the other highlight of the week was The Walking Dead night at the Saint Paul Saints' baseball park. I wrote a separate journal card about Cole and his preparations for the big night.
Sigh. I hope he never loses that chutzpah.
Here's my journal card for the week:
And now it's back to work for me. Deadlines are looming.

Random side note: I’ve been playing Phase 10 on my iPhone. ADDICTING.

Walking Dead Night? That sounds amazing! Wish I could have been there.

Go Big or Go Home! I love it!!!!!!
You gotta love the word “chutzpah”. Brings to mind “snicklefritz”.
Love your pages! Can you believe….week 34? I’m doing this for the first year myself and am so proud that it’s week 34 and for the most part, I am caught up. LOVE Project Life!
Bad girl, baaaad girl….. you been and gone and done it now!! LOL

I’m simply sharing pertinent info! Besides, why should I be the only one hiding from my kids in the bathroom so I can complete my phases?? I’m spreading the love. ROFL!!
What a great week to remember, love the pictures. Sometimes I want to relive other weeks too. The weather just heated up again for us, I was loving those 50 degree mornings.
Great job again on your project life. Did you mention which of the new kits you want next year? I love the Seafoam and Bridgeport.

What a fun week! And Sheriff Grimes? Perfect. I love your posts.
I <3 Cole and the entire Zielske family!!!!!!
Thanks for being such an inspiration Cathy. After seeing your enjoyment with Project Life, I have finally taken the plunge and will be starting mine this week. With a baby on the way, I know I will love being able to look back on this time in my life with regular documentation.
