Magical Monday

Aug 25, 2014 by


This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* This statement: “When people act the least deserving of love is when they need it most.” I had this saying taped to my refrigerator when my 2nd son was 3 years old. It’s a good reminder to pull out now!

* The Chester Fair. We go every year with friends and it’s always so much fun. Never disappoints.

* Schools starting this week! Even though I’m a homeschooler, I still REALLY look forward to school starting ~ this means we get the beaches, museums, aquariums and everywhere else pretty much back to ourselves. And I’m not going to apologize for LOVING this!

* My wonderful hubby. We’ve been kicking ass with the co-parenting lately, making sure that each of us gets the recharge and time away that we need. Makes all the difference.

Ahhhhhh……this weekend I had the whole house to myself! My dearest hubby (after returning from a 10 day mountain bike race in Canada) took our three boys to their grandparents house in Maine so I could have some much-needed recharge time after my stint as a single parent.  I have to say we are getting better at replenishing ourselves and supporting each other’s replenishments. It’s sooooo nice.

The highlights of my weekend alone:

* The looking forward to it part! All week I was able to absorb and cherish each moment with my family, knowing that I’d be getting some time to myself. The anticipation of it was almost just as good!

* Grocery shopping for only MY food at the grocery store. I love doing this!

* Bubble baths by candle-light with soft music playing and only my pets to keep my company.

This Magical Monday I’m grateful for:

* Pizza dinners!

* Remote control cars that make all my boys (and kitties) so happy.

* Our two kittens that really entertain us and they both LOOOOVE our doggie, which is a real treat for her.


* My new nose ring. :)

* My aerial silks practice! I did a 30 day inversion challenge  on my Kate Street blog (warning: lots of swearing is involved) where I got over a mental block and now my practice is so much better! I’m so effin’ happy!

* My littlest boy is turning THREE this week and he is so excited for his birthday. He’s such a stinkin’ cutie.

* My oldest boy is starting a knitting class this week with other homeschoolers and he’s so excited. He’s been wanting to learn to knit for a couple of years now and is just too hard learning from a video!
