Happy 4th of July weekend everyone. I’m still not sure what we have up our sleeves. I think we’re heading to the Swappers Meet in the morning. Paul has a 4 day weekend and it’s always fun to look at the same junk year after year and I DO plan on eating french fries this weekend while I’m “on a break” from my “lifestyle change.”

I think we’re also going to take the boat out on Monday for a cruise somewhere. Other than that, I think we’ll play it by ear. I do want to do some yard work in here too.

How has your week been? Do you have any blow out plans for the 4th?

    Oh, I have nothing exciting planned because I work this weekend 😦 Fortunately, it’s not my holiday so I get to come home on Monday, but unfortunately I will be stuck there for 3 days before that! Today was hotter than blazes so the kids and I went to the beach in the morning, dentist in the afternoon and then to Paul and Joy’s for swimming before/after supper. The pool was nice ( a little chilly, but the kids didn’t care) but I wasn’t hot enough to get in all the way. As I’ve gotten older, I hate being cold more and more and I really hate the initial shock of cold water! So, hopefully it stays warm over the weekend and I can take a dip while out on the boat ride. Otherwise, that’s it! Aren’t I exciting?!!!! LOL!

    I’ll be working all weekend. We got past one big annual deadline, but now I have to focus on the next one which is even bigger. And still get all my usual work done. My partner asked the clients to send us as much work as they could by Friday since it will enable us to work that much more on the weekend. Isn’t that grand? But I will admit that the reason is important enough, and I normally don’t do that much on July 4 anyway. I assume we’ll watch fireworks, but that’s about it.

    This past week has probably been the busiest all year so far. It was good to put a lot of stuff behind me, but I still have a full plate. At this point, it’s all about pacing myself. Which I’m usually not good at, but I do better when things get really crazy.

    We’ve got a Pool Party tomorrow night. It’s a fundraiser for a new baseball field, or maybe improvements to the existing fields, in our town. Whatever, it’s a worthy cause – to help the kids have more places to play – so we’re going. Also, it’s swimming, so we’re ALWAYS up for that. I hope it’s a really HOT night.

    Saturday, we’ll probably “shake out” the tent. Next weekend, we’re going to Cub Scout Summer Camp (which is only a few days long), and the cabin is full, so we’re bringing our tent so more kids (who don’t have equipment) can use the cabin. I haven’t set up our tent in a good 25 years (at least) so I’m going to have to do some serious remembering.

    Sunday, Steve’s family (parents and uncle) come for a visit, and will be staying until sometime Wednesday. Wednesday night, we have another pool party (end-of-baseball this time). Thursday, we leave for camp. The next week is going to be busy-busy-busy.

    I have a 4 day weekend too and I am so excited for that! I very rarely get a week day off. It’s just me and Bailey today. He wants to go hunt for yard sales, and there is this antique store he’s been wanting to go to so we’ll do that too. It’s so humid already, we might end up at the lake! Later this evening, we’re taking the boat out.

    Saturday we have zero plans, so I am doing yard work. Sunday, we are meeting some of the baseball families at a friends house for a BBQ.

    That’s all we have planned and it feels nice to have a little break from kids that aren’t mine!!!

    Well, I work tomorrow afternoon, but once I punch out we’re (youngest granddaughter and I) heading up to MI to see the “greats” and their parents! We’ll be gone all week so I won’t be on at all since there’s no computer at their place (imagine that!). It should be a really nice week, though we’ll have to have a few tough discussions as well. Life’s just not working for them right now and it’s time for some tough decisions on their part. Please say a prayer that these things’ll be worked out and good choices will be made. That’s the hard part about life, thinking we (the older generation) know the most viable solutions, but only being able to listen and advise. Decisions are their’s alone to make. Parents and grandparents need to stay back and let them make those decisions. And then honor those decisions without interfering.

    For the most part it’ll be a fun time of beach, fireworks, games and general fun!

    Here’s wishing you all a weekend celebration that is all you desire it to be. 😀

    We are heading to my parents’ cabin for the long weekend. We will be riding atvs, picnicking, playing games, and watching the fireworks in Evanston, Wy (by far the best place for fireworks, ever!) 🙂

    Do you hate it when someone says “I promised we would do X today, so are you on track to deliver”? Without checking to see if you actually have capacity to do X today? And then guilting you when you say “no, I have nothing to deliver”?

    • Phyllis says:

      I’m sorry…. isn’t the key phrase there “I promised”? Seems to me it falls on that person to deliver whatever was promised, especially since that person didn’t check with others that would need to be involved!

    So today I discovered a really stupid error in an important document that has been circulating around since last December. So in fixing it, I needed to inform a whole group of important people that I am an idiot. Strange thing is, I don’t really care. Normally I’d be freaking out and wanting to crawl into a hole, but today, I feel, hell. Just get it fixed and move on. Can’t undo what happened in the past, and I don’t have energy to waste worrying about it.

    • Phyllis says:

      Personally I think todays reaction was the best one, make the calls and get the error fixed. I’m sure whoever you needed to speak with has made their own share of mistakes in the past. The sun is still going to set tonight and rise again tomorrow, so just moving on makes a lot of sense.

    • Laura says:

      Good for you. I think a lot of people need to start dealing with things that way. Fix the problem in a straightforward, matter-of-fact way, and move the heck on. life is too short for all the DRAMA.

      Ok, then. Apparently, putting your comment in all caps causes it to erase whatever you’ve written. My reply box was empty this time!!

    • Joy says:

      This whole new box thing MAKES ME WANT TO PULL OUT MY HAIR!!! I’d give anything to have it back the way it used to be.
