feels like i've been trying to outrun a speeding train...and seriously why is that.....????
it's summer for pete's sakes!
i know it probably has a lot to do with our full calendar as of late, and our two week camping trip that is here in 5 days if we're ready or not. (I promise mom, we will at least remember the tent!) but i haven't woken up a day this summer without thinking...
let's stay put today...
let's not go anywhere...
let's not have anyone over...
let's sit on the sofa all day and play words with friends...
let's build every puzzle in the house....
let's paint, or draw, or make something...
but inadvertently something will happen or i will remember a commitment that was already made, or someone will get an invite that is pleaded and begged for and all those unlofty lofty plans are out the window.
do i put my foot down to be lazy?
or do i let the day evolve....???
often times i feel our day sped up by the girls demands to go and do and truth be told i'm not so good with all that last minute fly by the seat of my pants scheduling!!:) sounds kind of funny as i write this...cause i guess that's what summer is right?
ok...it's settled...the problem's all mine and i just have to get over myself!:0
really wanted to do my ten on ten post for june...but got about 5 photos and poof...done.
it's that train again i tell ya!:)
our little june bugs were blessed with so many wonderful gifts and cards this year.
family and friends rock.
want a super easy, super yummy dinner?
dave added those two packets, and a half jar of pepper rings to the crock pot with six boneless, skinless chicken breasts and 12 oz of water.
cooked it for seven hours then took out the chicken and shredded it.
he added a little of the liquid from the crockpot back in to get some flavor...but still kept it not so spicy. (for me)
you could add more if you wanted.
put a slice of provolone down in the bun (we liked the tougher brat buns as opposed to sub buns).
then pile in some chicken.
crazy yummy and pretty easy right?
they handed in their loot to the keeper of the nooks and
instant summer smiles.
and lots of work for mommy!
anyone got any good nook tips and tricks or google play apps they love??:)
so today's the last night of vbs.
would it be so wrong of me to say...i'm glad?
it was great and they loved it.
but 5 nights of them getting home at almost 9, and full of energy i might add, has been trying on these early to bed early to rise parents.:)
so what's going on in your life?
how are you handling the push and pull of the go and stay of summer?
i'd sure love some pointers!
have a happy day,
the dishwasher repairman that comes tomorrow
frozen caramel/mocha's from panera
(and yes it's official...i'm addicted...but still limiting myself to one a week...but goodness i think about them a lot and how totally weird is that??:))
music on my phone and ear buds
and friends who keep reading totally lame posts with even totally lame-er thankful lists!:)
ha...just seeing if you stuck with me till that final word!:)
