Spring is by far my favorite season. It’s like all the wonderful green is finally waking up and stretching the long winter sleep away. I’ve complained about the brevity of spring flowers but I still love to see those presents popping up all over.
Last fall I found a steal of a deal on bulbs and went kinda gaga buying and planting. I tried to get a variety of things that would bloom from early to late but all the tulips seemed to come up at the same time. I even have enough I cut a bunch yesterday for a vase in the house and you can’t even tell a difference in the flowerbed. Awesome! 🌷🌷🌷🌷
It’s now six days from my sons birthday and it’s so different than his sisters. She makes such a big deal and is serious about party planning and he doesn’t even seem to care. I sent a group text to all his friends moms and all the boys are available Sunday afternoon. ✅ Done.
There’s a new VR game place near our house and I’m gonna look into taking them there, but besides that they will just want to have nerf wars or sit around playing video games all afternoon. Somewhere near dinnertime we will get pizza and that’s it. ✅ ✅ Done done.
It’s hard to believe sometimes that I have a 14 year old and 16 year old. They will both be in high school next year and that’s incredible. I’m not quite ready for that. My two babies are growing up and it’s definitely bitter sweet.
I’m looking forward to the summer and taking them to the pool and just hanging out without worrying about school. Z will probably get a job and start borrowing my car for that. Just one more thing I’m not quite ready for.
I have a feeling that it’s going get even tougher getting hours into work with all the other awesomeness of spring and summer going on. I just have to find a good balance and a solid routine. I’ve already gotten used to not working on school things and have started getting some projects around the house done on. A rainy evening yesterday resulted in my dining room finally getting painted. (Yeah, it’s been on the list since all that thermostat nonsense last fall). Whatev.
As soon as we get to Mother’s Day all bets are off and the planting outside can begin. That’s when it’s going to get really tough sitting in my office on the computer. I do, however, need to be able pay for all those lovely plants so there is that.
14 years ago I took my baby boy home from the hospital on Mother’s Day and it was the sweetest gift ever. May is a great month. It’s the best month for looking forward to EVERYTHING! 🌺🌸🌷⛈⛱🌼🌻🌤🍓🍹🚴🏻♀️🌱🌹❤️
Peace and Love,
