I must say, my luck has really turned around this week. It's like the universe took one look at the past four work weeks and was like, "oh, I so sowwies" and gave me a quick turnaround. Who knows how long it'll last, really, but it's kept me in a chipper mood all week long. No complaints here.
One week from today, August begins. August. We are almost eight months into 2014. Blows my mind.
This time last year, I was enjoying long days at the beach and warm (okay, hot and humid) summer nights with the option to sleep in until 11 a.m. every morning. Obviously, that's changed a little. My trips to the beach are semi-often, and I don't even remember the last time I slept in past 10...even that's a rarity. I spend most of my nights trying to fit in a little relaxation time between my work days. This doesn't leave a lot of room for fun summer adventures.
You may recall my summer to-do list here. I figure it's only fair to hold myself accountable to see what I've accomplished thus far, and what is left to do:
Float down Rainbow River! This is an absolute must, hence number one on the list.Ummm, well, we tried to float down the river, but we got there too late so we just hopped in the spring...this only half counts.
- Visit Disney's water park, Blizzard Beach. I've gone almost every summer since I was nine years old. The best.
Make homemade sangria for a poolside barbecue.4th of July...check! Have a blast in New York City with Ryan. This one is a given.
- Take a bike ride some place cool. Either along Bayshore Boulevard, or along a trail somewhere.
Embrace my new outdoor patio space.Growing some basil & swatting away spider webs as we speak. Make a stronger effort to make plans with friends I haven't seen in awhile. Real plans. Sleepovers. You know, fun girly stuff.I think I've been getting better about this!
