Day 177

What a summer so far!  Busy busy busy.  I have had only 1 or 2 days without anything planned.  Being busy has been wonderful and horrible all at once.  I feel torn between taking some time at home just to sit and taking Little Monster off to do something fun, something new. 

07-04-2011 (79)We had a wonderful time on Independence Day. Our city has a 07-04-2011 (54)big day-long celebration in the park; a parade (which we followed with Hot Dogs and Slurpees), watching a Chinook fly in some Army National Guard members preparing for deployment, face painting and kids games, a flag raising ceremony, food and fireworks… it was a long and fun filled day.  However, the day was underscored by the absence of Mr. B.  But we did not forget him.

This was my most emotional Independence Day to date.  I was so emotional that I canceled my plans to have friends come over and spend the day with us and instead spent the entire day at the park.  I didn’t want to be home.  I knew being at home would be the worst possible thing I could do (for Little Monster as well).

It was hot, but it was fun.  Wal-Mart was even at the park passing out cold bottles of water and encouraging everyone to drink lots of water which I thought was pretty cool.  I packed water but it got pretty warm after a while with the temps being close to 100°.  It was nice to end the day with fireworks.  I think this was the first year that Little Monster really truly enjoyed the fireworks.


While yesterday was fun and exciting, I think I got a bit too much sun and didn’t eat or drink enough water… been kind of in a funk all day.

Oh and I did something silly today.  I took a nap… and then when I woke up I ran into the wall on my way to the bathroom (to be fair, it was right at the bathroom door).  I have a little bump on my head that I keep forgetting about and touching accidentally.  The only reason I keep touching it is because it’s at my hairline and I keep running my fingers through my hair because I got it trimmed today.  Which reminds me… my hair is starting to get long and it’s the healthiest I can ever remember it being.

Tomorrow starts another busy day…
