Whoever thought that summer vacation got a whole lot less complicated once school let out- didn't have a clue or didn't have kids!
Life is just as crazy busy- just without having to take kids to and from school.
What's keeping me busy- well I know it's hard to believe, but DANCE RECITAL. I've had some additional duties added to my plate and it's making me a little twitchy as I try to get it done. On top of those duties-we have an end of year Lacrosse Banquet that I'm working on as well. Once these events are completed, I'll be in full swing getting ready for new product training and a national sales meeting for work.
We are supposed to take a family vacation in July. I'm desperately hoping against hope that it happens. Beloved gets a little twitchy himself thinking about leaving his business with a babysitter for a week-but as I tell him....BALANCE in all things! It's necessary. We haven't been on an honest to goodness family vacation in about five years. We've done the weekend getaway thing but it's just not the same.
Eldest goes to take her State Board Licensing examine this week, so she can be licensed cosmetologist and then hopefully become gainfully employed at a salon. Send her good thoughts, won't you?
Youngest and I witnessed a car hitting a young man on a bike this evening. I actually didn't see the actual impact, but the after effect of the hit. Youngest did see the entire thing and was pretty shaken up by it. I called 911 and waited with another woman who was in the car behind me to see if we could help the guy on the bike. His leg did not look good. The sad part about this whole thing is that the guy who was driving obviously had some sort of disability. (Truthfully, I'm not sure what, but definitely did have something.) He was a young guy as well, and was driving a car full of teenagers. The driver was very upset by this accident and the boys in the car with him were doing nothing to help or support him. I felt like they thought this whole thing was entertaining and were basically driving around with this guy because he had a car and they didn't. I know I'm taking a lot of liberties in my assessment of the situation, but I'm just stating what I observed. It's going to be a bad scene all around. Once the police and medical attention arrived and we gave our statements, we were free to leave. I have no idea how this is going to turn out. I'm assuming not good for either party.
If you want or need a good laugh, check out this blog. It's called, "Wave at the Bus." This guy dressed in a different costume every day to wave his son off to the school bus each day for the entire school year. He documented his fun. I give him a lot of creativity points for the costumes he came up with (and he spent no more than $50 for everything!) and for the determination and energy to keep this endeavor going. Not to mention fantastic sense of humor of Dad and son alike!
And finally, actually, I have no finally...it just went straight out of my head and frankly, I don't have the energy to go and find it. Until then- tell me what you've all been up to? How's your summer vacation starting out?
