Here I am back in SoCal and I'm tying up as many loose ends as possible, putting trips together etc..
Anyhow, I got to thinking that I should probably book the hotel for next years MLB ALL STAR game which takes place in San Diego and I got punched in the gut!
Here I was all excited and stoked that the game was going to be semi local and that I would be in town for Jet's birthday (July 12th) and then when I go to look at the calendar and see what date the game falls on BAM disappointment struck!
The freakin' game is going to fall on her birthday!
Well...maybe we can celebrate the day before?
Or the day after? Or the entire weekend prior???
Or maybe she wants to go to San Diego for her birthday? I know that she WILL NOT care to go to the game, or the parade.
But maybe something else in San Diego?
WHY OH WHY CAN'T I DO EVERYTHING?!?!
That's all I want - is to be able to do it all! Is that too much to ask?
So, I've noticed that some kids are already back in school - it's not even Labor Day people -
what the heck is up with that?!
Yea yeah ya, I know they got out of school early - know what I got to say about that
a BIG FAT WHATEVER!
I sorry guys....It sucks!
I at least hope that these kids had an active, fun filled summer and got away from all of the SCREENS!
And just in case you haven't already done all your back to school shopping or maybe you still have a few items to check off of your list...

Not Throwin' in the Towel on Summer yet
Happy Throwback Thursday!
I have to tell you - these kids are totally loving these unscheduled days this week!!
They are enjoying sleeping late and staying in their pj's till early afternoon. I think it's good for the kids to recharge their batteries!
As for me, I won't lie...not having a place to be or schedule to keep has been a relief for me too.
Having said that, in a weird way, I'm looking forward to the routined schedule of the school year just a little.
This year is a little strange -- our school and many of the surrounding schools here in NY are starting BEFORE Labor Day. Even Tanya made note of it in her blog today.
I find it absurd! For 2 silly days, they are making people cut their summers short and lose a week that they would have otherwise had to continue Summer vacations and trips. It's just stupid and angers me!!!
circa 2010 - North Folk Long Island Festival
Ok, enough of my rant. I'm going to just enjoy the rest of this week and next week out east for the girls' last week of horseback riding camp. They will start their regular saturday schedule thereafter, once school begins.
I am just so excited that we have partnered with Amazon!!! I know Tanya couldn't contain her excitement about this either and mentioned that we now have a direct link on our Travelin' Cousins site for your convenience with all of your shopping needs and wants!!
With school starting and of course, the holiday season coming shortly thereafter, we want to make shopping convenient for our followers!!
SEE TANYA'S SIDE FOR A GREAT BACK TO SCHOOL LINK TO AMAZON!
And of course, it does help our importance to Amazon if you do CLICK through our site. So, a big thank you in advance!!
It's Throwback Thursday, as I mentioned. I wish I had my article written already (bad Elisa) but I don't lol.
I'll be digging into it later, so it will be a surprise to you what I'm writing about...and to Tanya who eagerly wants to include the title in her blog today. Sorry Cuz - it's been a bit of a siesta week for your big cuz!!
With that said, I think I'm going to find a nice comfy place outside in the yard (Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have internet again at my house!!) and dig into my Throwback Thursday story!!
As for you - I hope it's a wonderful day with a chance to reminisce about great times!!
I'll see ya back here tomorrow with some great links for yummy foods and of course, Tanya's Foodie Friday feature!!
