I’ve been so busy with the kids. I’ve been trying to entertain them and keep them active. So far the summer has been very good. I’m enjoying every minute. Not every moment is perfect. Life is not perfect. This summer has and continues to test my patience. Not only from my children but from people all around me. Waiting in line, more people at the malls and sometimes the HEAT. Heat is not my favourite thing. Loud noises everywhere and no calmness. Always on the go and no time for my self. As I’m writing this I have anxiety that my children are going to call me. Even on the toilet they call me! lol Seriously?I love them to bits, don’t get me wrong but are any other parents feeling this right now?
The kids keep me young!
Watched Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation at Scarborough Town Centre. The hot popcorn was delicious. We had fun and I can’t wait to see Incredibles 2 and also Winnie the Poo!! When is that one coming out? I’m a kid at heart.
Yesterday I decided to have them do nothing. I didn’t take them anywhere and they found this strange. lol omg so funny to even write this out. So they did a little painting and are watching YouTube. They are obsessed with SQUISHY videos. Squishies are very addictive I must add. I love them too.
I know this won’t last for ever and that’s why I’m shifting my thoughts to be positive and trying really hard to stay calm and collected. July has been eventful. Hot sun, fun fairs and swimming. Visits to the mall for overpriced ice cream and treats.
More swimming and fun in the sun.
Gardening and flowers
I’m lost in the summer adventures and don’t have a list to follow. Who does? Lists don’t work very well with #MOMLIFE do they? If so please let me know what your trick is. The girls and I made a fun bucket list. We have many things to complete. I’m not in a rush though. I don’t want to stress.
This summer feels different than last summer. I’ll be honest and tell you that this summer feels a little more down for me. I guess because some of life’s stresses are effecting me. My mind is my enemy and stress is not good at all for my health. I’m trying to figure things out and I know it will be okay.
We went to a fair. It was lovely but not as good as the CNE. I can’t wait for the CNE!
This day was so hot we all ended up dehydrated and sunburned. But it was fun.
I lost my sunglasses and right after the fair I rushed to find another pair.
So overall things have been lovely. The weather has calmed down and there is no extreme heat warming which is good. I would like to get more organized…at least try. I’m behind on my favourites. Forgive me. I’m hoping to travel around Ontario. Trying to. It’s hard for my husband to find time especially with construction around the house. *Sigh* I’ll be okay. Things will work out.
