The Summer That Was

Dude…June & July were crazy busy! And not for work related reasons either. Mostly just for kid-related reasons. And house-related reasons. And summer-related reasons. Needless to say, my blogging has taken a hit because, quite frankly…I’ve been really freakin’ busy up in here! And now that August is rolling around, I’ll be busy working and making some money to pay off June & July which were a lot slower than normal. Oh well…I got to spend some quality time with my family, my friends and lots of smiling faces (except when I was yelling. Hey…I get a little stressed sometimes). Here’s a recap of this 2 months…

Have I mentioned that Ava’s tooth is loose?

And there were so many OTHER things that I don’t have pictures of…such as golf camp, tennis camp, basketball camp, football camp, cheerleading camp, Steph’s class reunion, the kids visited Grandma & Grandpa and an endless cycle of eating out with friends, having friends over for dinner and basically just doing things with friends.


And now…back to work for me. I’m working 24 days next month. Ugh.

Buuuut…ya gotta make money somehow…right? Look for me to get back on the blogging hot & heavy here soon. Thanks for the patience. Oh…and I deleted the Lady GaGa post that was basically generating over 2,000 hits a day for myself. It got out of control with people leaving rude & obnoxious comments. Seriously…anyone THAT smitten by a musician (and an odd one at that) should really consider getting a life. But it was interesting for awhile, just seeing how many hits I could get out of it! LOL

    I was cracking up over that Lady Ga Ga post. I too find it funny how ticked people can get over something so silly. I didn’t check back on the post, but when I saw it the comments were entertaining. To say the least.
    Looks like you had a great summer. I am glad you had more time with your family.

    I enjoyed your summer very much. Looking forward to next summer!! (‘course, I’ll see you at Thanksgiving, and you have a standing invitation to ABC anytime you make it to Fla.) I know you love their pizza. Maybe a trip or two to 5 Guys, too. So cheer up, make some money and I’ll help you spend it this winter!! Love…

  4. OOO It looks like you are having a GREAT summer! 🙂

  5. I like recaps.

    Also, bring back Lady GaGa and the crazies! Crazy people are fun.


  6. Wow – what a full summer! Today was the first day of school here.

  7. You gotta live your life first, blog second. lol
