That's normal, right?
But its another weekend chalked up in the books... & another weekend full of things accomplished.
Friday, I ended up soaking up the beautiful weather by sitting outside & reading another book in 24 hours. I am on a roll lately. I will say, I quit 2 books because I wasn't feeling it. I've learned its not worth the time to invest in bad books when there's books out there that make me read straight through them.
We actually went out to dinner on Friday evening too. That's something we rarely ever do. It made me feel like a kid again. I can remember every Friday, my dad would get his pay check & it was a big deal for us to wait for him to get home from work, he'd take a shower, we'd load up in the van, go to the bank & we'd go out to dinner... usually the Ponderosa. It was like Christmas every Friday.
So when I go out to dinner on Friday's now... which is rare... it always makes me think of that... funny how memories work.
I also got through the rest of season 1 & half of season 2 of Younger.... ended up staying up to nearly 1am because I didnt want to stop watching it.
I did end up getting to bed though because I had an early morning photo session.
I wish I could share the pics - but they are a surprise for Father's Day... so I'll have to post some pictures later... after Father's Day that is....
But it went well & I'm glad we got it done early in the day before it got really hot.
I ended up stopping at Starbucks to flip through my camera & look at the pics & refueling on some iced coffee in air conditioning....
|A little sneak peak from a distance....|
Then it was time to get home & upload my pictures & start editing.
I had told the client that I would try & have them all edited by the end of the day since we did this one early. I also just wanted to get it all behind me because I always feel the pressure of wanting to get the pics done for the client & because I just hate having more on my TO-DO list....
I did really well at finishing... got it all done...REALLLLLY LATE....
But I did take a break in there ... to start reading a new book...
& we ran out to pick up a quick dinner.
& to, of course, play frisbee whenever you can with this spoiled one.
Speaking of spoiled... Ricky can NOT sit down without Harvey thinking that he should just be held. He cant even be comfortable in Ricky's lap... he's too big - he can't fit on his lap in a chair... but he still tries. Every time. & he will lay there until Ricky just cant hold him anymore. I'm telling you, he is probably our most spoiled dog we've ever had. & I'm totally OK with that.
While I finished up editing, I made it through the rest of Younger....
& AM NOW LOST WITHOUT IT NOW.
I cant wait for Season 4 to start. It's bad when you binge a show because you put so much of your time in one thing & when it ends, it feels like something is missing. The down side of binging!!!
I ended up not going to bed till nearly 1am.... YAWNNNN....
Sunday had me getting up & heading to Krispy Kreme... only to see more youth leaders in there getting some donuts.
Why all the sugar? For celebration!
It was our final MSM of the year....
|Donuts for my girls... iced coffee for me|
... which side note - I was NOT a fan of. I couldnt drink more than 3 drinks of it.
|Love that this 8th grader was giving a message on Anxiety & fear..|
& that's her momma watching her from the front row so proud
My group are 7th graders... we'll be that group next year leading the final class & having a graduation. I can't even imagine these sweet girls heading to high school... but it'll happen soon enough.
I left right from church to head to a bridal shower of one of my beautiful friends. She was a former youth kiddo of mine & I watched her grow up into this amazing woman.... I'm so excited for her wedding.
& loved celebrating her bridal shower with her & her family.
I finally got home to read another chapter or two in my book...
& then we headed over to see my parents for a bit....
while Ricky got to play with the horse....
& I got to fall in love with triplets.
Then BAM SMACK BOOM.... the weekend is over. Dang it. Really DANG IT.
It was time to get settled in & get cleaned up & mentally ready for Monday... because this week is going to be so busy... really, the rest of June is going to be busy.
I need a vacation... you have no idea....
