Rainy Day Thursday!

Good Morning!

 It has been quite a rainy summer here in Georgia.  We were able to go swimming yesterday, which was a lot of fun.  My daughter is in California, and she went to Disneyland yesterday.  She texted me a play by play all day, what ride she was going on next, what she ate with photos too...LOL.

I have been to Disneyland more times than I can count, I love that place, it truly is a happy and magical place.  I would like to go to Disneyworld and compare the two.  My favorite ride was shut down, so she wasn't able to go on it, "Thunder Mountain"..I think she has been on it before though.  I think this is her 4th time there?
 Anyway, since today, I woke up to rain, I am going to use this time to really do some cleaning and organizing..all while listening to Court on TV.  You never know what the jury will do.  I have NEVER been right guessing a verdict.  I just finished cleaning and organizing my oldest son's room, yes, I still do it...LOL.  He moved back home and he seems to be doing really well back at home.  He is working and learning to balance things in his life.

I have bathrooms to clean, and stairs to vacuum..floors to sweep, food to prep, things to wipe down, closets to organize.  My littlest one starts Kindergarten in 3 weeks, and I need to make a list of everything he will need.  I have so many mixed emotions about him starting school..this isn't just a normal mommy angst, it is fear that comes in waves.  I have to have faith in God, that I have schooled my son properly in his allergy, and that the school will take great care of him while providing a normal life as possible.  For those of you that don't know, my son has a life threatening peanut/treenut allergy, and nuts are in EVERYTHING!!   :::sigh:::: He is starting Kindergarten at 6 years old instead of the typical 5, just because at 5 I wasn't quite sure he was mentally ready for the pressure that goes with this allergy.

I miss my daughter but I know she is having a wonderful time, she so missed California...I know the feeling.  I love living in Georgia and I think it is a wonderful place to raise children, but sometimes I miss the place I made home for over 30 years, kwim? I would never want to live there again, don't misunderstand me, but I sometimes miss it.... :)

Well, it is time for another cup of coffee, and I am going to finish dusting my daughter's room.  I want everything ready when school starts....LOL.....Have a happy Thursday, stay dry if it is wet, stay cool if it is hot and stay warm if it is cold...and whatever you do, don't forget the sunscreen!!!  XO XO
Dinner will be something with porkchops......

Dear Julieann,
I was just catching up with reading some of my favorite blogs and was very sad to hear about your Lacey. Isn't it strange how you feel you need to explain to people how important these little critters are to you and how much they are loved. Some people just don't get it. But I know how much a person can love even a mouse! Your little Lacey may have been small but I'm sure she filled a huge part of your heart and home! A few days ago my beautiful kitty, Little Star, 13 years old, suddenly got very ill and we had to make the difficult choice to put her to sleep. I feel so lost without her. She was such a big part of my life. I babied her spoiled her. But that's what I do with my pets. I understand how you feel. It takes time for our heart to mend after such a loss!

Hello, Julieann! You are so close to Disney World now that I hope you get the chance to go sometime. I'd love to hear what you think. I went once as a child, once for my and my husband's 7th anniversary, and again in 2011 with our little boy. He was 6 at the time. It was a wonderful experience to go with our child and so different from going as an adult with another adult. We've never been to Disney Land but hear that it is different in some ways but just as fun.

I know you are feeling so anxious about your littlest starting school. I'm hoping your anxiety lessens after you and he get through that first day and first week. I know lots of children at my son's school have nut allergies and many precautions are taken to keep them safe. I have never heard of anything bad happening, and we've been at that school for going on 5 years.

Hang in there!
