Last Day of School! All around the country, this week everyone was preparing for the last day of school! In Virginia Beach, that was today! I took photos of my girls from the first day of school and of today, and WOW what a big change this year! Longer hair, growth spurts, thinning out, all happened in these 9 months! It was a great school year for all of them, constant honor roll, Jasmine being accepted into the gifted program for next year, just a really great year that I am thankful for!
Favorite Blog Post: I read this blog post this week from MotherLove, and it was fantastic! I’ve been both a working mom and a SAHM in the past, and I don’t think either side should judge, and both are great, it all depends on your family situation! Great read, make sure you check it out and tell her I sent you! http://motherlove.me/2014/05/20/a-letter-from-a-working-mother-to-a-stay-at-home-mother-and-vice-versa-2/
Twitter Parties! As I mentioned in this past post of Favorite Things, I now love Twitter! I know love Twitter even more because of some Twitter Parties/Chats that I have participated in! So far, I’ve participated in #runchat, #bibchat, #poweredbybits, and #sitsgirls chats! They are so fun, so interactive, and a great way to follow new people! Check out the ones I’ve mentioned, or share in the comments some of your favorite ones!!
Tattoo Idea: So, if you read yesterday’s post, or follow me on FB or Instagram, yesterday I talked a lot about my father’s passing 10 years ago. First, thank you for all the love yesterday, I really was having a hard day. Later yesterday, I found a card in some of my old things. I open it up and see that its a card that my family gave me the day I was leaving for the Navy. I have read it lots of times, but I noticed this time, in the right corner, my dad’s writing and this:
I needed to read that. And, I think I will be completing my 30 lists of getting this as my tattoo this year. I just don’t know where yet? I was thinking if its small enough it can be on my wrists, but thoughts?
My health: This time last year, I was in the hospital, in ICU, trying to fight for my health when the doctors couldn’t tell me what was making me sick. I missed Fathers Day, my youngests preschool graduation, and so much more. It was hard as I was in ICU for 5 days, and the hospital for 8.
