Back to work/reality/kids-to-school life and long weekend, Tuesday was a get shit done day, and that didn’t include me reminiscing about what I ate and drank on the weekend.
I can’t believe summer is over! It kind of pisses me off to be honest with you. Apart from a few days camping and a brief trip to Northern Ontario for a memorial service/family catch up, I felt like I worked all summer. I guess that’s what happens when your business starts growing. Duh. But really, I don’t feel “summer rejuvenated” like I have some years. Planning to be in NYC in early November for a mini-holiday, so looking forward to that! That’s the next stop on the vacation list anyhow.
So the last long weekend of the summer I made a rule: No housework, no work work, and all play. Princess was finally home from her summer excursions and everyone was happy.
I broke these rules, but we had a starting point anyway. We ended up at a local beach on Saturday. I realized my family is way too ADD to actually have a relaxing day at the beach. They must be moving or getting into something or bothering someone (me) at all times. Quiet book day? Nope. Oh well. Tug did bring a queen sized air mattress to the beach. Yeah, it was a hit with onlookers. There was even a conversation with a stranger that went like this:
“Now what the hell are ya gonna do with that thing? Is that an air mattress?”
“It’s my boat”.
Ah…yes. Good times in the sun. I will say that a queen size air mattress is quite comfy on the water though.
Sunday I started making pina coladas a bit earlier than I should have. I was pretty much asleep by 9pm. I was up early though making apple fritters to go with our Badass Brunch. They actually turned out pretty well!
Monday we spent visiting family, and I worked in the morning, breaking my rule. And I ended my day having very special barn time with my good friend Tango. He was in a great mood oddly, and wasn’t plotting my death at all so I spent some extra time after our ride giving him some extra attention and carrots. He’s a total sweetheart when he wants to be. And he’s cute as heck.
That’s it for the round up. RHONJ tonight. Trashy trash! And the week is half over. Win.
