Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I usually don’t blog on weekends but since this is June 30th, and I didn’t blog yesterday, I wanted to share with you my plans for July. I will be 50 on July 3rd, I’m moving back to my hometown, Kansas City. I have to pack and organize this move while being wife, mom and maintaining my sanity. I decided to blog about my activities this month so I can look back on this as hopefully a wonderful memory. I plan to blog Monday through Friday during the month of July. I normally blog three days a week, so this will be very interesting.
My only sister died in 1997 at age 49, three months before her 50th birthday. I have always felt that deep down inside I wasn’t going to make it to my 50th birthday. I know that sounds bizarre, but I used to let those thoughts bother me. My sister was 15 years older than me and even though we were like night and day, I looked up to her. I can’t share pictures of her because my pictures are at the bottom of the pile in our storage area, I’ll post them later in the month when I get down to them. She didn’t like taking pictures even though she was a beautiful woman. I feel so blessed that I decided I wanted to blog about my journey on turning 50. We are starting with a concert to see Will Downing tonight, one of our favorites. Thank goodness it’s at a nice venue with air conditioning!
I love shoes, if you follow me on Pinterest, it’s one of my biggest boards. I did a little shopping yesterday, bought these shoes….but I may take them back. I also have to be practical this month, and they don’t match one thing in my closet! They are suppose to be beige/tan, but they look pink. What do you think? I got them at Nordstrom Rack and paid a bit more than I normally would have. They are AGL (who???) and the retail price is $325 and I paid $79. They are extremely comfortable which is very important to me these days, very. They just don’t match the dress I wanted to wear. Plan B? Wear some white pants and a “new” top, that will work! I’m going out to get me a new blouse/top to wear with these shoes, that will be cheaper. I’ll post pictures of our evening on Monday.
Then there’s the move…wow, so much to do. I called the school district and they told me that school starts August 16th, so I’ll have almost two weeks to get them registered in school. Hopefully that will be painless, they make you bring so much to prove you live in the district. Ummm, I still own my house in this district, so they’re good, but a policy is a policy. I’ll have my ducks in a row. I found a moving company and scheduled them last week, and having utilities turned on this week. Here’s a picture of the mess “we” have to start packing. I’m donating a lot of our things, mostly clothing and shoes. The girls and I have plenty to give away.
I’m off to a good start, but have plenty to do. Blogging will definitely help me this month, I will apologize to everyone in advance. Have a great weekend!
