Tying up some loose ends

So if Sunday was a Mama/kid reconnect day, Monday was a Mama day.
Due to the fact that we pulled a late night on Sunday I didn't set our alarm and we just woke up when the birds woke us. We ended up not making it on the bus so I dropped them at school in the nick of time and headed out for a walk from school. It was a different route and I hadn't measured it but it was a beautiful day and the music was jamming. Teaticket School to the Village green and back=5.25 miles.
When I got home I decided that the East Falmouth Amazon jungle that was my lawn needed mowing. After fighting with my front lawn I realized that someone had lowered my mower deck so I was basically trying to bring the jungle to a crew cut. After raising it, I headed to the back yard and was about 2/3 done when I decided to quit. There was a big thing I had planned on handling and I was avoiding it with yard work.
I don't want to get into it here just yet but I will say it is another step for me to be a stronger person. It was a small thing but it was the 1st step. I felt more powerful as I walked out of the office.
P.S. I am done being walked on. As soon as I pack my last box and walk out the door to that house I am done. It is the anchor that has held me down for too long.
On a littler note, I am proud of myself so what better way to celebrate than to eat an order of super hot wings from DJ's and wash it down with a cold beer. Why? Because I am awesome. :)

When the kids came home apparently Kylie and Olivia had cooked up some plan to get together and do homework. No homework got done but Ava and Kylie did decorate this beautiful tree and we all danced around it so a song they made up. They rode bikes, played with the animals and we had another perfect pre-Summer night.
The upside to this night, I got to sit in a lawn chair and talk to my oldest friend. She gets me. I do not see her enough but when I do it is like walking in a door that I just walked out of yesterday. I have been going through these growing spurts. She was the one who got that I needed space. The Summer is where we reconnect. The kids think it is all about them but really it is just as much about us. Grown ups need to get together with their girlfriends too.
