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!
