Okay, so, I have to admit that last week was not really the best week ever. It is getting to the point of total crazy around here. I was down a kid (due to the sweet blessings of church camp), but the other two were constantly at battle. When Friday finally arrived, we all needed to get out of the prison walls of this house! The oldest arrived home from church camp and settled in nicely…it is amazing what a week without social media and a new perspective make. Saturday morning we all formulated our game plan for the day. First stop was Freebirds for some lunch, then on to The Main Event for some family fun, LOL. I have to admit, it was a really great day! The food was incredible, and NO ONE argued at all!!!! The Main Event is not usually my favorite place to visit. I am not a huge fan of the chaos or the swiping of that dang card. We stayed for about 2 hours, and everyone left with a smile on their face. That is a win in my book!!
On the way home, I received a Facebook invite from some good friends to their “First Annual Slip and Slide Kick Ball Bash”. Never done this before! So, we headed out there for the evening. SO MUCH FUN!! I am not sure who enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults! I really love the great friends that we have. It seems like every time we all get together I meet someone new that I thoroughly enjoy. I really do believe that you can learn so much from everyone you meet. Honestly, I don’t know if I am just surrounding myself with different types of people, or if I am progressing more and more in my recovery and able to be way more “real”. I find it so interesting the conversations that I have with my friends now. Nobody really cares about how perfect they look or how “right” they are parenting. It is just honest and real. Do we talk about insecurities and swimsuits and food…yes…but, it is not the FOCUS. I love that!!! Nobody cares! 🙂
Soooo, Sunday morning arrived, and the oldest was excited to go to church and take her two best friends. I dropped them off and came home to change for a walk/run. Side note – just signed up for a team race in October called Ragnar that I am very nervous about…I really do not like to run, LOL. More on that later! We ended the weekend with an afternoon of swimming and GREAT food at another friend’s house. Feeling very blessed on this Monday after a long, crazy weekend! 😉
