The Good, The Bad, and The Hilarious of Parenting

Summer Bucket List Update #2

on July 23, 2012

A few weeks back I created a Summer Bucket List.  My hope was to slow down and enjoy this amazing time of year.  I wanted to give you an update —

I have been moving a bit slower on tackling my summer bucket list, but I am still making progress and enjoying it.  This week I focused on #8. Make Sure To Do Something Just For Me — Right now I am leaning towards getting a pedi and also, hanging out by the pool without anyone around to watch!  

I did get that pedi with my oldest daughter, K, who just recently returned from a trip to Italy and Greece.  However, my biggest accomplishment towards tackling #8 is in the picture below:

 Do you see that?  A beautiful slice of Chocolate Silk Cake and my new hardwood floors (Thanks Terry) and my new TV with Netflix waiting for me to select any show I want.  Of course, you see that — it is what you don’t see that matters!!  No kids or husband.  No one yelling for a bite of my delicious cake that I bought all for me.  No one fussing about what to watch on the tv!!  Listen!  Do you hear it?  That is right — NOTHING!!  It was just me, myself, and I — I ate that entire slice of cake and watched some trashy movie that I don’t even remember the name of, and I enjoyed every minute of it!  GOOD FOR ME!!
You should try a little peace and quiet and some self-indulgence.  You might just like it!

    That looks like a lovely way to have some you time! Trashy movies are the best. Tonight I will get about 40 minutes to myself…my husband said I can watch an episode of my new favorite show, “Parenthood”- uninterrupted!

Very interested to hear you thoughts so leave a reply!
