I was riding a huge wave of joy and happiness and had a (seriously) small wave knock me off my cool ride (it's all metaphorical people. I was just surprised how much this one event could effect me so). But it knocked me off none the less and I had to scramble to find my place again. Like Stella, I was looking for a way to get my groove back, it just took a little longer than I had anticipated. But I think I'm there now.
So today, I figured I'd begin nice and easy with a Random Ramblings.
~I noticed I missed out on two huge milestones recently for my dear sweet Cranberry Fries blog. Next week we'll for sure be celebrating. And when I say we, I really mean we. As in, cool stuff. For. You.
~My mom is a presenter at a Womens Conference today and in the little booklet they have a snippet of a bio for each presenter. I always knew my mom was amazing but can I just tell you all how proud I was of that 26 words that were written about her?
"Wife, mother, grandmother; BYU graduate; counselor in ward Relief Society presidency; three-time cancer survivor; former school teacher, Girl Scout leader, PTA president, and small business owner"
Summer is approaching. I'm not talking weather, since quite frankly we all know that spring around these parts that I live really amounts to rain, snow, hail, high temps, and tornado like winds all within the same day. So yes, the weather version of summer will probably not be approaching for some time. I'm talking summer as in the no-school variety.
I've been trying to come up with ideas and activities to keep my fun-loving kids, and of course myself, entertained and amused. I have a handful of ideas. I probably need more. My real hope is that I can get my act together and set up a plan so that I feel some sort of committement to partake in these ideas I'm coming up with instead of thinking, "ah lets just stay home and play outside today." (Which I suppose is ok too, but all school year I think, "When school is out we'll go do ___(fill in the blank w/ great idea)" so now is the time to actually start thinking about ____(yah fill it in again).
I'm considering an idea I heard from a friend. Something like Monday-playdate, Tuesday-field trip, Wednesday-stay home, Thursday-grandma's house/friends house ?? , Friday-? . Obviously you see my errors. I just dont know what to do with my half-thought out plan.
Life is good.
