The Summer of Yes!


In my last posting, I mentioned that I’ve been so busy that I’ve not had time to blog for the last two months. I should feel bad about that, and yet I have a hard time feeling guilty.

This was the best summer…ever.  No joking.

So what did I do all summer? These are the highlights:

~Fishing

~Spent time outside, either gardening or hanging out with friends in front of a fire.

~Went riding motorcycle with The Flirt.

~Old Friends stayed with me during the State Fair, and adventures ensued. We went to two different concerts, Blake Shelton and Foreigner. My thanks to friends R & H…what a fabulous time!

~I worked less this summer than last, and spent more time with my kids…doing whatever.

~Several home improvement projects were done, included getting new doors and gutters. I’m a long way from being done, but that is quite a chunk off of the to do list for this year.

~I managed to thin out my bookshelf, down to almost nothing except reference books. I have been using my Itouch as an e-reader, which as worked out really well, and now I have a lot of extra room on the shelves in my room.

~I just got back from a quick trip to Sturgis, SD. The Flirt and I went down for the Bike Rally. It was certainly an experience, and was a nice quick get away. The roads were good, the food was amazing, and it was so cool to see all the different bikes. The people there were so nice, and it was a fabulous time.

What did I do in between all of that?  I’ve done a lot of whatever the heck I wanted to, and haven’t felt like there was much that got in the way of it.  I spent less time worrying about “what-ifs” and just went with most anything that came along, and it turned out to be a lot more fun and tons less stressful.  These last two months have been bliss.

So…what’s next?

Well, it’s back to reality time. Work will get a lot busier given that my Cube Farm is going from one owner to another, which has proven to be quite a challenge thus far.

I haven’t had to deal with my litigious ex husband all summer, but that’s come to an end. I met with my lawyer today and we’re gearing up for the court hearing coming up at the end of September. I’m hoping that this will be the last of it.

Younger Son has started back up with Football practice. I’m looking forward to watching him play. Older Son has taken an easy summer, staying with is part-time job. Now it’s time for him to get a full-time job, and it will be interesting to see how that comes out.

So…I guess play time is done and it’s time to get back to real life and all of the stuff that comes with it.

That’s ok…I’m looking forward to a Winter of Yes! We have plans for lots of pool and darts, as well as ice fishing. Whoo! I can’t wait…

Here’s hoping that you all had as good a Summer as I did, and that you have a Winter of Yes coming up around the corner too!
