Independence Day

My family wishes you a very Happy and Safe 4th of July! May you take a moment to reflect on the wonderful freedoms that we have as Americans and to remember all of those that have sacrificed for our freedoms over the last 230+ years.

God Bless America! And should any Veteran happen upon this, Thank you so much for your sacrifice and your love for our Great Country!

I love Vacation!

I have to admit that I love being on vacation! I have never said that before! I like being at work. I like the women I work with and I like what I do. And I like talking to adults. Being home can be challenging so I enjoy the break that work brings me.

I have been off this week. I haven't done anything of any consequence, yet I have done something that every parent should do. I have been kind to myself and given myself permission to relax and think about my needs and wants for a little bit!

Now I get to seem as though I am self sacrificing yet I am being totally selfish. I am going to take the kiddos to the pool and play in the water for as long as I want. I have to be honest....It really is fun to have children. You get to watch fun movies, you get to laugh at gas, tell silly stories and act absolutely ridiculous. All the while your child is smiling and giggling and you get to be part of the memories that those silly moments create.

We have had our friend's daughter staying with us while she has been in the hospital and she is such a sweet kid. It makes me consider adding another child to our home...Then I remember kids come with issues and my house has enough issues never mind...I will just steal K now and then....

Have a fun filled, giggle filled day! Be well.....

Lazy days of summer......

Lame picture right? Yeah I know but I couldn't find a good piece of clip art that I didnt have to pay royalties on. Today is July 2 and it is quite warm outside. Our complex is dragging their feet at fixing our central air so it is super warm inside of our third floor apt. So I am a tad cranky today.

Thank Goodness the pool opens at noon. Once I feed Rose and her friend we will go out to the pool. I work most of the summer so it is rare that I get to be home and enjoy the Lazy days of summer. I enjoy having the day to spend with my girls without having an agenda. Usually on the weekends we are always going here or there and things seems to always be going at a fast clip....

So today I am going to go out to the pool and let my hands and feet get pruney while I play with my girls!

Remember to take time to enjoy the simple pleasures of summer!

Be Well!
