In Chill Mode

It’s official, I’m in summer mode!  All the winter snows days made for a late start to my summer.  The patio is only half decorated with flowers, but at this point, I’m saying to heck with the flowers and am going to enjoy my yard as it is.

Summer 2014

Summer 2014

It’s July 28th and today is my first time in the pool this year.  Hubby blew up some floats that I bought at the end of last summer.  I think I like this float.  It has a built-in pillow.

My plan today was to workout at the gym (back day) then run the Ocean City Bridge. Guess what?  Lol!  I did neither because I slept just a little past 9:30 this morning and decided to make it a rest day.  Besides, my biceps and legs are still sore from the last two workouts; the rest will do my body good. We took B’Dazzle to his football conditioning class and now I’m relaxing in the back yard.

Tomorrow I will hit the weights.

Enjoy the day!

Clearly it’s been a minute since I’ve posted.   Any he-how… this is a quick one.  Guilt from infrequent posts have led me to blog this morning.


Obviously this is not the most inspiring or effective writer’s space, but it’s where I’m currently blogging –folding clothes–supervising my son who is supposed to be sorting through his toys (like I’m supposed to be doing laundry)—washing clothes—poppin my fingers and shaking my booty to Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”.   Hubby surprised me with tickets to see Beyonce’s, Mrs. Carter’s show last night!  I had a blast; Mrs. Carter did her thang!





Why haven’t I posted?   Simply because the past month, I’ve either procrastinated, became distracted by CrossFit, floating in my pool, attending to sleep needs, and enjoying the blazin 90+ degree temps at the Jersey Shore.   All equates to falling off the wagon of discipline.

The truth is that as a working mother of a young child and wife of 25-years, at the end of the grinding school year I need a break.  I need and use the first month of my summer vacation to unwind and re-charge.  The rule is:

     Do whatever I feel like doing.

Eleven months out of the year, I  run a tight ship playing a plethora of roles, so it won’t kill my family when I slack on everything for a month…or so.

As a little girl, mom taught me how to fold linen... very nicely.

Sorting laundry

Just a few of many toys.... YIkes!!

They're cute but must go!

The bugs on the wall are cute but must go!

My son’s bedroom is overdue for a remodel.   Check out the bug theme!! LOL!!  At soon-to-be 11, I think…    Ah… I know that he’s outgrown the theme.  I don’t even want his friends going to his room for fear of them laughing at his “kiddy” themed room.

This morning is the start of sorting through old and broken toys.  Some we’ll give away, others will be trashed.

I really must go now but wish you a FABULOUS Friday and thanks so much for visiting!
