WEEKLY BLOG: HOT SUMMER DAYS ,ADJUSTING SCHEDULES, & FESTIVAL

This week we are focused on staying cool and adjusting to schedules. My son work schedule has ramped up and making sure the other kids have someone with them, has been our priority.

Sunday: After a week of not much going on, today started very calm. I’ve been caught up on household duties. Therefore, I decided to finish up some of the things that was on my to do list. WEEKEND SELF CARE TO DO LIST Also took a chance to just sit and chill. During the week from the time I wake up at 5a.m. I’m going until I go to bed. Because it’s so hot out the kids didn’t want to do anything so we stayed in the cool air. Right now we’re adjusting to my oldest son working and our daily routine shifting a bit. Lastly, I’m trying to get the kids input on some Father’s Day ideas.

Monday: Great morning. It’s a little rainy out and very humid. We are in the triple digits this week and I know we won’t be out much. The one thing I do love about this weather is I can go out and walk and get a good sweat in. That is the best feeling. Currently not too excited to head to the office, we been very slow. I’d rather spend time at home working on other things. But anyway, it was good to have some good conversation, get notes done, and get out the house. It’s extremely hot and humid out, which means I get to get in a good walk, sweat, and release. The rest of the evening we stayed in the cool air conditioned and relax.

Tuesday: We are adjusting to my son going to work and making sure someone else is here with my other kids. It’s been a struggle but it hasn’t turned out as bad as I thought. My son is really liking his job and has picked up well. I don’t have much on my to do list at work today. But I will take the time to do some research. Later in the evening I strolled the ailses of several stores looking for something for father’s day. Once agian I am completely stumped and have no idea what I’m going to do. Afterward, I decided to relax myself and get a good walk in before turning in.

Wednesday: These triple digits are draining. Your skin just feels like its crawling off. But heading into the office I know there isn’t much going on and I plan to do some other work to keep me busy. When we get off, my son has to go to the DMV and I’m so not ready for this. It’s hard to believe I have a kid old enough to work and drive. But the hubs and I enjoyed taking him around showing him how things go and what needs to be done when heading into this phase of life. Also it was good for my younger two to see the process. Later on in the evening I decided to go out for a walk and get some sun, watch the deer, and rabbits enjoy nature with me.

Thursday: Morning is going great. Adjusting to different schedules and watching my son get ready for work with me is surreal. We literally had a conversation the other day about how we have a 16 year old who is working, getting a check in his name, and making his own way. But as usual, office has been really slow so I’m trying to use it as time to do some leg work on other opportunities. We haven’t been really planning much because it’s so hot out and no one wants to do anything. There is a festival this weekend we may head to.

Friday: I am so glad the week is over. Nothing too much is planned for the weekend. Because my son is working the evening on Sunday (Father’s Day). We might just do brunch and then spend the day at my moms. There are a couple activities going on locally tomorrow that I may take the other kids too. If it isn’t too hot and they want to go. Spent the evening doing my daughters hair and then cleaning. I was able to get some edits done and published 10 LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY.

Saturday: We had a chill sleep in kind of morning. There is a festival that we’re going to head out to after my son goes to work. After an afternoon clean up, laundry, and doing my daughters hair we headed out to the festival. It was also near a water park so the kids were able to have some fun even though it was extremely hot out. The music, games, food trucks, and activities were very nice and fun. We all enjoyed ourselves. Afterward we headed for a quick bite to eat, slushies, and ice cream. Finally we were home to shower and relax. Being in the sun and heat can drain you.

Have a great week everyone!!!!
