Thursday Thoughts

 

TTGood-copyI’m again linking up with Jennifer at Ramblings of a Suburban Mom for her Thursday Thoughts link-up.

~ Life is still CRAZY, but it’s finally starting to slow down.  (Thank goodness!!!)  I will have my first review in FOREVER later today.

~ It’s been hot and humid here.  The girls have been swimming in the pool and at the beach and spending a lot of time coloring and playing with play-doh.  Anything else just uses too much energy right now.

~ I started back at the gym last night (it was about 95) and my gym isn’t air conditioned.  I was exhausted for the rest of the night but it felt good to get back lifting weights.

~ Anyone else use hulafrog? I have been checking it out all summer and we’ve done a few things on the list.  My only problem is that we are really in between two regions for our state and there’s no way to look at all the events in both regions.  I really wish you could multi-select areas.

But, it’s a great way to find free/low cost events in your area.

~ I made my Dad get a state parks pass for him and my Mom yesterday.  We have one (but it’s $60/year) and use it for the beach all summer.  If you are over 62, you can get one in Massachusetts for $10 that’s valid for your lifetime.  Since parking at one beach is $10/day, it’s well worth it.

~ I’ve been cleaning (out) and doing laundry like crazy lately, but somehow the house still doesn’t look like we’ve worked that hard.  I’m hoping for the humidity to break so that we can wrap up some of the projects we have going this weekend.

What’s on your mind this week?

~ We celebrated my parent’s 45th anniversary over the weekend and it was so much fun.  I think we are still recovering from all of the activity!  We had a cookout on Thursday night, Friday we did a family photo and then Saturday and Sunday were spent in Boston.

~ Now that the “big” cousins have gone back to Wisconsin, I have a very sad 5 year old.  They only get to see each other once a year and it’s always sad when they have to say good bye.

~ My husband is on vacation from work this week, so Ava was told no more diapers (she was totally ready to potty train, she just didn’t want to).  But, she is doing great!  Once  she realized the diapers were gone, she’s been heading to the bathroom herself and we’ve barely had to remind her.

~ We are still planning on a yard sale Saturday, but I’ve barely done anything to get ready for it.  I’m hoping that we’ll get through a lot of the kid’s clothes tonight and if I get enough done at work today I plan to take tomorrow off.  I don’t expect to get everything cleaned out, but I’d like to get a lot done.

Jamberry #Throwback Thursday

I was so excited when Jamberry announced that they would be bringing back retired designs every other Thursday for the summer.  We have no idea what they will be bringing back, but each design is only available for five days.  I didn’t love the last choice, but this week includes one design I REALLY wanted to see – STRAWBERRY GINGHAM and Siesta!

I love the Strawberry Gingham – perfect for summer and Siesta is just a fun, colorful wrap.

Thursday Thoughts

~ Another week has gone by with barely any posts!  Work has been crazy and life has been crazy.

~ We are planning a yard sale for next weekend and are trying to get stuff together for that without making a huge mess of the house (and without the girls seeing some of the stuff we are getting rid of).  We have so many baby toys, books and clothes!  It’s time to let another family get some use out of the stuff our girls aren’t using.

~ My brother and his family are coming in today from Wisconsin!  We haven’t seen them in a year and the girls are off the walls excited about it.  It’s my parent’s 45th anniversary, so we will be celebrating together all weekend.

~ Anyone watching Big Brother?  I loved last season, but I’m not really into this season (yet).  Maybe there are just too many people left.

~ I am loving American Ninja Warrior!  I watched a little last year and am trying to watch it all this year.  We watched it last weekend with the girls and they absolutely loved it.

~ I can’t believe I haven’t posted for TWO weeks!!!  Life has been crazy and I think it’s going to continue being crazy for the next two weeks.

~ We went to Sesame Place with my parents and the girls last week and had a blast!  It was not their first time going, and it was as much fun as ever!  I’ll post more pictures and a review later this week, but it was a successful trip.

~ I’m still searching for ways to lower the phone, cable, internet bill.  Unfortunately, we only have one good internet provider and that means that we are stuck with them and their crazy high prices.  I think we are switching to Directv though (we had it about 5 years ago) – it’s a significant enough savings that the switch will be worth it.

~ We will be ordering our first Men’s Fabletics outfit today.

~ I really need to go grocery shopping.  We are starting to run out of the basics (like milk).

~ My work is closed tomorrow and my husband is doing a 10K and the girls are doing a Fun Run.  That’s about it for our 4th of July plans.

This week’s are: Guacamole and Cut Loose

These aren’t really my style, but I know Guacamole is one that many people look for in trade groups and ebay and seems to be really hard to find.

~ Ava was sick yesterday and I stayed home with her which has completely thrown off my schedule.  I have no idea what day it is :)

~ Today is Ava’s last day of school (still undecided on if she will be going).  She has been cleared by the dr. to go, but I’m only going to send her if she seems up to it.

~ Our crazy birthday party weekends will be continuing this weekend.  We have one on Saturday, plus a graduation party, then Sunday is another party and Father’s Day.

~ I have all the teacher’s gifts done and will take a picture and post later – after I’m done sanitizing the house :)

~ Thank goodness for my planner.  I feel like we would have missed something important if we didn’t have it all written down.
