The Monday Minute: National Girlfriends Day

by | Aug 1, 2016 | The Monday Minute, Video

Happy Monday friends!

It’s National Girlfriends Day!

It’s also Homemade Pie Day!

And the rest of the week… well it could be a full one!

I know it’s a full one around here… My youngest returned from her camp on Saturday and my oldest two are off to camp today! I guess there will be two fewer people around to have to feed, but I will have one lonely kiddo hankerin’ for things to do.

Maybe I’ll task her on some yard work. My husband and I hit the yardwork mighty hard this weekend… it was a motivating start, but there is still much to do. That happens when you don’t do a little at a time, you know.

I’m hoping the blister on my thumb will turn to a hearty callous. Is that how green thumbs start – with blisters?

Oh, and in addition to yardwork and picking up a kid from camp and helping two other kids get ready for a week of camp and a BBQ with friends… my husband built a Ninja Warrior Warped Wall for Lucy…

*Someone’s* daddy built her a @ninjawarrior warped wall. SOMEONE is very happy ????

One evening not too long ago Lucy asked my husband if he’d make her one.

The answer was “No” because what kid REALLY wants a big wall to run up? Surely it was a frivolous ask.

However, Lucy was DEAD serious, and frankly she was quite devastated… not in a spoiled brat sort-of way, but in a DEATH OF A DREAM sort-of way.

We’re not sure where to go from here, other than up. After a few tries she reach the top of the wall. If I were a betting woman, I’d put money on seeing Lucy on American Ninja Warrior some day 😉

Happy Monday friends. Peace and sparkles to you… and don’t forget to look for a way to change someone’s day for good today… or this week. Or every day this week 😉
