When I had my boys and my first summer rolled around, I kind of wondered what to do with them. I wanted to spend time with them, but I also wanted a little time for myself. I felt guilty... like a bad mom... but then I got over it! Not only is it good to keep your kids on some type of schedule, but moms need their time, too! I send them two days a week. I use this time to work on resources, blog, and stay in touch with other bloggers. I'm not gonna lie when I say I may also use this time to lay on the couch and watch a few shows on Netflix. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT! Do I have to pay for it? YES! Is it worth it? YES! What will I do when my oldest starts kindergarten? I HAVE NOT IDEA!! I think that's when some summer camps will come into play. Moms, don't feel guilty! You deserve it :)
My sweet husband wanted me to have a new car... so I did! I mean, who turns that down? I never in my life thought I would purchase a Ford Explorer, but I love it! We also used this as an opportunity to talk to our boys about going to college, working hard, and getting to do and purchase nice things. Learning Experience!!
You read it... and I really don't want to talk about it. Is it just me or is this summer zooming by??
Oh how I want this! I live in a house full of boys, y'all! Everything I have gets touched, broken, drawn on, spilled on, peed on (not really), but you get the point! I need my own 'woman cave' if you will! And I need it BAD! This is a goal I have in the next 6 months. It may not be what I envision, but it will be something! Right now my current situation is the dining table. I have to move ALL my things every time we eat. It gets a little old! I've been eyeing this beautiful desk from Ikea for a while now.
Soon folks, soon!
I thank my heavenly father every day for taking care of my family and providing our essential needs. He is so good us, y'all. I'm not just talking about me here. He is good is us ALL! Don't ever forget to thank him for the many blessings he grants us each day. I am a spoiled child of God! Is my life perfect? NO! Have I had trials? YES! If anyone has, I have! Losing a child is a terrible grief to deal with, but his mercy and love endures forever. Don't dwell on the bad. Instead, focus on your small every day blessings! My outlook is... your life could be a lot worse!
Aren't we all All Stars in some way? I'm known for my creative problem solving skills. Whether it's scheduling, shopping, crafting, whatever! I'm going to think... and think... and think until I find a way. Even if it is buying that pretty little desk or a bundle of office supplies I don't need! LOL
There you have it! Go link up with Farley!
