June - Summer begins, and I get some me time!!!

Hi all - I love June!  First, my kids get out of school and summer begins, so lots of fun activities ranging from birthday parties, play dates and the pool - busy, but fun!  Also, my hubby has his birthday this month, followed closely by Father's Day - I am blessed to say I have a wonderful father and will be able to see him that weekend!  :)  I also am ecstatic that I get a week to myself!!!!  Yes folks, a whole week where I have the house to myself - I can do what I want, eat what I want, and heck prance around naked if I want (but trust me, I won't...haha)!  Just the thought of it makes me giddy!  My hubby is heading up to his mom's for a mud run, and then will stick around to help her with some household projects.  In the meantime, my parents are taking both kids for a week!  Don't get me wrong, I will miss them all terribly, and will be so glad to have them return home safely - but for that week while they are gone!!!  Oh...what to do!?  I already have a girls night out planned with one of my friends.  I plan on doing some deep cleaning in areas that are usually neglected - not fun, but necessary - and will be much easier to accomplish without little ones (and one big messy one) around!  Oh the possibilities are endless!!!  :)  So...yes, this month is looking good so far! 

On a sad note, there are two anniversaries I don't like - today is one of them.  My wonderful Father-in-law passed away two years ago today and is dearly missed.  He was a terrific man and wish he was still here with us.  Also, we are getting ready to hit the 25th anniversary of my brother's death - he was killed in a car accident at the age of 18 - he has been dead longer than he has been alive, but he is still sooooo missed!  Not a day goes by where I wish I couldn't call up my older brother for advice, just to laugh, and I wish my children could have met their awesome uncle! June, but there are a few shadows - they are from the angels looking at us from above!
