It’s Just a Plate

The Plate

It’s just a plate.

The plate was left on the table.
The plate was knocked off the table.
The plate hit the floor.
The plate broke into pieces.

Neither kid was at fault. It was an accident. However, I lost my temper. It shouldn’t have happened, but it did.

I vigorously washed dishes and cooled down.

Lily came to me a while later with tears in her eyes telling me how grateful she was to have a family.

I apologized and told her that I was just frustrated, not that it was an excuse.

So, like everyone else, I can just vow to try harder, to be better, next time.

Happy Independence Day!

Johnny Tincap & Navy

The last several years, we’ve been very fortunate to have friends at Imagine Real Estate give us tickets to this wonderful celebration. We ventured out for a TinCaps game followed by the City of Fort Wayne fireworks.

Lovely Ladies

It’s always a fun event that the kids really look forward to. They have some of their favorite foods, a splash pad, and fireworks! There’s a baseball game, too, if you like that sort of thing.

The TinCaps won. It ended up being 4-0. Even though it was a pretty sad showing for the Captains, I still love seeing my team win.

I totally skipped the bun for my burger. The bread would have wasted valuable stomach space. I needed the room for wings that’d be served in the 4th inning and apple crisp that’d be served in the 7th. Needless to say, no one went home hungry last night. There was plenty of food, soda, and a cash bar. Continue reading

Sunday Funday at the Pool

Pool Day

It was a stressful start to the day. I couldn’t find my bathing suit bottoms. I had to run to the store to find new ones. Found ones I liked, and they were reshelved while I was in the fitting room trying on shorts.

I will save the annoyance of shopping for women’s clothing from a big box retailer for another post.

We joined up with Lily’s Girl Scout troop at Jury Pool. The kids have gone quite a bit with their day camp program, but I hadn’t been in 20 years. Waaaaay before they renovated.

The kids loved it. Both were ready for bed shortly after we got home. Navy fell asleep on the floor. Lily at least showered and put jammies on.

Happy + Tired = Success

Thankful Thursday: Supportive Family

Thankful Thursday

I needed a picture to post on my LuLaRoe FB page. I needed someone to take a picture because the bathroom mirror technique just looked tacky.

My sweet 6-year-old offered to take my picture so showcase my outfit. We took a couple of shots. He did a great job.

I’m wearing a LuLaRoe Collection for Disney Cassie skirt and a Classic tee.

I am so grateful to have a loving a supportive family. This LuLaRoe thing is really a family business for us.

What I Wore Wednesday: Keep It Simple

I have two LuLaRoe Carly dresses. Everyone seems to love them, but I couldn’t figure out how to make it fit my style. I felt like I was wearing a nightgown.

That’s also exactly how I started wearing my Carly dresses. As nightgowns. To bed. They’re super comfy, in case you’re thinking about trying it.

Carly

I experimented with a few belts before finding thisΒ Bow BeltΒ on Amazon. It accentuated my waist right where I wanted it to. Continue reading
