Summer strategy

Summer is almost here and there are a few things I'd like to accomplish.  One of my biggest goals this summer is not to over-schedule the boys.  I don't usually fail in this manner, but only because I keep reminding myself that they have more fun and learn and grow more when they are able to play and explore in a self-directed manner.

Order in the house!  I want to maintain order in this house.  I'm currently living like a master hoarder and it's horrifying.  Everything got backed up last holiday season.  I used to tidy up every evening after the boys were off to bed but, instead, I started editing photos because of the torrent of mini photo sessions.  Then after the busy portrait season ended, so did my desire for nightly tidying sessions.

I want to read more books.  Ones that neither rhyme nor have more illustrations than text.  I miss reading big people books!

By the end of summer, I also want to finish at least one short film.  Nothing fancy--maybe just 5 minutes or so.  I keep using the excuse that I don't have the right equipment (I need a decent tripod, external mic, follow focus setup, etc.) but the fact is that I'm scared.  Or maybe lazy.  Or more likely both scared and lazy.
