Enough!

Too many emails.

Too many Facebook pages.

Too many Instagram accounts.

Too many.

Enough is enough.

Today I have gone through emails trying to decide how many to unsubscribe from. How many were really necessary. How many I actually cared to read. There was just so much crap. I had so many emails that I had coming in from blogs that I had no interest in (sorry, not sorry).

If there were blogs I really wanted to read – I would just go to their pages.

If there are stores that I like to shop at – I would check to see if there were any sales.

If I really was interested I wouldn’t just delete the email without reading.

So many emails that it was just silly.

I don’t know what my breaking point was. I just can’t handle the excess of everything anymore! I have stuff that I want just because I saw it. I have stuff in closets – IN CLOSETS – and have not used like I said I would. It is disgusting.

Why has is gotten like this? I am tired of it! Enough is enough!

I vow to not want and not get caught up in it all. Do one thing at a time. Enjoy the amazing life I have, with the family I love. And NOT having to document it all on social media. It was done that way before!

I like the idea of blogging again. Because there isn’t a huge expectation for when things should be done. It is my space! I can do what I want and talk about what I want.

I need to be in more control of me without concern of what others are doing. Only my family and I know what is best for us. To me, it is less TV and more books.

What have you had enough of?

Summer Is Coming!

Summer is coming and that is for sure! I know I should focus on Spring, but I am pretty sure here in Alabama we already had that season when most were having winter. I am only bragging a little.

Summer Is Coming!

I am ready for another summer of fun with the girls and a few extra friends! I have things that I want to do and some of them are possibly kicking off this summer!

I want to go camping more. The girls love it and I know that when we play together as a family we are stronger for it. We may get to do that sooner than later, but I still think it will be fun!

I want to visit places! We have friends and family all over – we need to take advantage of this!

Free programs – they are everywhere! The libraries have them, the Chamber of Commerce have them, the YMCA has them, we just have to look for them!

We have plenty of trails and parks to check out and explore – so we need to explore!

I want to try and geocache.

OutsideĀ movies are put on by multiple different places, and movies are too dang expensive anymore.

Beach trips – even if they are just for a day.

Lunches with daddy have to happen more often. They have to. We love them and even though he may get irritated when the girls are acting crazy – they always ask to go and love the time.

Cook outs and friends. Always a must.

What are some of the things that you want to be doing this summer?

March Reflection

March was a month that was good. I can’t really complain as I do some reflection. It wasn’t one that completely stands out, but there sure were some good days!

Ryley finished up her tutoring and I can completely say with confidence that this program put on by some of the teachers was a success for my child. She gained confidence and you can tell that in her work. She actually shares her papers with us and wants to do her work!

Ryley also turned 7. My middle child is 7. Oh this makes my heart hurt for sure.

My middle….

The next week my in-laws came to visit which always is a good time. We experienced a place to eat called the “Waffle King” and of course some of our favorites like The Fort Mitchell Grill. You can never go wrong with a burger from there.

Then the night I had been waiting for – the 4th RTB Ball. I love getting dressed up and being taken out. I even got to dance and I did get to meet new people and enjoy myself. I loved it. We were one of the last ones to leave and we got home before midnight. I can’t wait till next year all ready! (Not really any pictures since I didn’t take my phone so I could really enjoy myself)

The next week I took my youngest and her friend to a movie at the National Infantry Museum. We watched Cinderella on a HUGE screen for free. I like free!

Easter was filled with fun with my sister, niece, and brother-in-law. I love family visits and they always seen to go too fast. We did get to watch my Abby get an award for making the A Honor Roll both the 2nd and 3rd Nine Weeks of School. I am pretty proud to say the least!

The weekend also had Fred & Lester’s Restaurant, grilling out back, and a crab boil. Mmmmmm

Easter dinner!

Soccer started yesterday and should provide some excitement to say the least. I just hope that Ryley scores more than 1 goal to top last year, and Abby remembers that she is not the only kid playing on the team šŸ˜‰

How was your march?
