I haven't done a post in a long time where I just get to babble. So I'm gonna bless you with my babbling.
May is the busiest month of the year for my family. My sister's birthday was May 4th (Happy Birthday sis) my mom's birthday is May 13th (HB mom), my niece's birthday was May 6th (HB Casey) Three of my friend's Birthdays are in May (HB - Pat, Angel, and Jen!) annd my father-in-law's birthday is May 12th (HB FIL)
AND... last but not least - My birthday is May 19th! HB me!
Then of course there is Mother's day. And just to make things more complicated - we are having our annual "Family Christmas in July" on Memorial Day weekend!
So if I seem a little frazzled this month - that's why! May is worse than December with Christmas for my family.
Some of you may not know this but I am a Certified Child Care provider, I watch children in my home before and after school (I choose not to watch young ones all day). So this means I have my summers off! Woo hoo! I love my summers just as much as the kids do. I have a lot planned for this summer.
First, right after school ends I am taking off for TN to visit the Mom and Step-dad! This is always a good vacation for me. They have a real nice house in a great area, surrounded by the Smokey mountains and lakes. My mom and I get along great (most of the time LOL) we both like to power shop, both knit, both read, both love wine and coffee, and we love to hang out at the pool. We are just comfortable with each other.
Also this summer - I AM GOING TO MAINE!!!!! This has always been a dream of mine! As long as I can remember I have wanted to go to Maine. One of my friends, Nancy, in PA told me about a bus trip to Maine and asked me if I wanted to go. I said "Well duh!". Booth Bay is one of the places we are going. It is during the big Lobster Fest. so we will be eating lobster everyday! YUM! All our food and lodging is included. This should be a great time, I can't wait!
Also this summer of course I do plan a couple trips to PA to stay at the hubby's place and visit friends. This is also fun for me to do!
So between May and Sept - I am going to be a very busy girl! Whew!
Oh I will also be reading and blogging, don't worry!
