For days, I have been thinking about this long weekend. Why does an extra day make such a difference to my psyche? Guess it helps that it's a 90 degrees and feels like summer.
So this Memorial weekend, I'll be standing in front of the hose--if the kids will let me. We'll be gardening, going for ice cream, and taking Alex to see his first movie. Tim and I will cook a few steaks on the grill and enjoy a glass (or two) of wine while Alex and Ella play baseball in the backyard. Did I mention there's lots of Red Sox baseball this weekend? As for "me" time, I'll find it. Can't keep me away from my writing sessions at Starbucks. And I foresee a much needed shopping trip in my future
I'm sad that I haven't been blogging much these last few weeks. Still haven't gotten my groove back, but I will do my fair share of reading and posting in the evenings. I feel like a noisy neighbor popping in to see what y'all have been doing. Whatever you've been up to, I can't wait to read about it.
Hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend (and a great weekend, even if you don't celebrate the holiday). Lastly, I want to offer all of the families with troops abroad my sincerest gratitude and wishes for safe and speedy returns.
