Saturday Samplings

So being late is once again the rule instead of the exception in the story of my life. For those of you new to my blog, I am supposed to do a Friday Fill In (pay special attention to the word Friday). This rarely happens anymore so I just fill them in when I get time and change the title accordingly. :) Yesterday was consumed with our last Friday brouhaha at Nashville Shores followed my a great evening with my boys. I love how we can all pile up in the bed and watch TV but I don't love how many heels, knees and elbows I take to my rib cage while sleeping. Occupational hazard of being a mom, I suppose.
Marshall starts his first day of Kindergarten on Monday so I am taking yet another day off for that. He is only going for an hour an Michael is going for two hours. Why do they even bother? Then they have Tuesday off. Marshall's first full day of school isn't until the tenth of August. I truly think it is so silly that they 'break-in' the K5 peeps. Just throw them in the class like they did 35 years ago when I started school. We really baby kids too much now days and it is such a disservice. Anywho, going to spend the rest of the weekend with my babies and relax relax relax.

1. Life is what you make of it and you will get out of it what you put into it.

2. Walmart is one of the best places to people watch EVER because well, I think the because is obvious.

3. if I was going somewhere, the one thing I have to bring is my ipod. Life without music isn't a life.

4. Some things that are happening in my life are not happening soon enough.

5. Next year, is going to be a fabulous year, I just know it.

6. I let go of the negative and I found a quasi nirvana.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to hanging out with my boys and playing wii, tomorrow my plans include swimming, shopping and eating :) and Sunday, I want to relax, hang out and have a safe trip home!

Time Keeps Slipping Away

I had full intentions to blog last Friday, i.e. July 8th, but was horribly sidetracked and the Fill In person was doing something different that I didn't quite get into so I just said forget it. Here is a catch up in extreme non sequitur fashion:

*I have officially embarked upon a new decade. My fourth! I am not at all bitter or disgusted by it and didn't lament leaving my 30's. Is that weird? Just another day as far as I was concerned. Not to sound like a bitch but I feel great and look pretty dang good for 40 so I am just rolling with it, you know? I am in better shape and actually feel better than I did ten years ago therefore I seriously have no complaints.

*I was kidnapped (so to speak) by my favorite cousin Gina for my birthday and was not even told where I was going just what to pack. Come to find out, I was whisked away to the Grove Park Inn located in Asheville, NC. We had so much fun as I welcomed my new decade with a mountain view massage, followed by a pedicure and then lounging by the pool, sitting in the steam room, sauna, mineral bath and the like. This place was utopia and I truly needed it. They even give you a small bottle of lavender to spray on your pillows before you go to bed and who knew I would have an affinity for peppermint infused wash clothes packed in ice placed on my eyes? After this trip, I believe essential oils and myself have something going on :)

*As hard as it is for me to believe, school starts in a week and one day. My little guy is starting kindergarten. I am ok as of now but I am ready for an emotional attack on the first day, after all, this is my last time. Michael is not terribly thrilled to start 6th grade but I suppose the choice is not his. The summer flew by for him and he feels a little cheated. At least we all had fun taking advantage of our Nashville Shores passes this summer.
Well, I am sure I could continue to bore all of you with potential ramblings but I will choose to stop. The weekend is over already :(

1. I hold onto all hope that my life will turn out the way it was meant to.
A person who can make me laugh and seems as if they truly want to be there is someone I would like to travel with because both of the qualities are extremely important to me.
3. That day,
will play over and over in my head and haunt me forever
4. I am having a difficult time grasping what all has transpired this year.
5. Trust
is something I will have again someday.
6. I lay motionless in the dark only because I am scared to death.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to
having a little time to myself and catching up an a couple of movies, tomorrow my plans include hanging out at the pool with my friends and Sunday, I want to buy some school clothes and see my boys!

Playing Major Catch Up

I am not going to write an update that is an entire week late but at least I can blog my belated fill ins :)
Act as if this was filled in on July 1st......

1. Blue skies
make me happy regardless of the season.

2. Whenever I walk down
memory lane I try to walk down the path which makes me smile the most.

3. Kids
are a blessing but leave you wondering at times.

Getting away, a new location, sleeping in; these are some of the best things about vacation.

5. Love is living in the moment with someone you want to be with and not a care in the world

I wonder if there is such thing as submarine races.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to
chilling at my mom and dads house, tomorrow my plans include going to Nashville Shores and relaxing followed by dinner with friends at the Boundr'yand Sunday, I want to sleep in and head home to see my boys!
