BRAND BALLOT'S TOP 100 MOM BLOGS FOR 2018!!
Hey there!! It's Sunday here on Long Island! The day started off so sunny and lovely, but as of this writing, it's become a bit cloudy. Actually, in either case, it's beginning to really feel like Spring.
I'm so glad I'm back today with you guys. I was so busy yesterday taking care of my dad with the rest of my family that before I knew it, I checked my email and saw that I received The Daily Scoop, without having blogged my column.
There is no doubt that I want to take care of my Dad, however, at this point, much of my time over the next few months, I'll have to rearrange my Daycation schedule.
I had some things planned during the next two weeks, but with my dad having some radiation therapy, I'll be there every step of the way. So, thank goodness my dear cousin Tanya is filling her Scoop with interesting and fun happenings!!
On Friday, Kelsey had her School Dance and looked so adorable!!
Today I'll be doing my best to catch upon on some writing for the week ahead.
Enjoy Tanya's Scoop today!! See ya back tomorrow!!
More performances and recitals
Hello there and Happy Sunday to you!
Somehow I feel as though all I do is tell you how very busy I am - blah blah blah. But yet no matter how much I attempt to share my busyness, I still don't feel as if it is truly being conveyed...
I really should have a camera following me around all day so that you can better understand - maybe one day.
As I left off with you and mentioned yesterday, this was going to be a very busy weekend and indeed it has been.
We were out and about running around checking things off of my list for well over 12 hours straight (and once back at home I still chose to head into the kitchen to make dinner for the crew).
But I also did come home with that lovely feeling of success!
It was one of those days where all the pieces fell into place ever so perfectly and I didn't need to adjust the schedule around one bit. I really love days like that...
Not to say that the day didn't have its teenage or spousal drama - because it most certainly did.
But since I don't live in a fairytale, I guess that is only to be expected.
--Wait a sec, as I recall...most fairytales ARE full of drama! LOL
And so it went...
It was a lovely day with gorgeous blue skies and the day began with a visit to Centennial Farms at the Orange County Fair Grounds where the event Dia De Nino was being held.
We wandered through the gardens on our way to the stage where the International Peace Choir would be performing.
The event was filled with several multi ethnic groups in some brilliantly beautiful costumes and truth is that if I didn't have such a full schedule, I would've enjoyed to stay longer and enjoy the other groups performing at the event. However once the kids were off stage, it was time for us to move on to the next thing on my list.
Aside from stopping to take pictures and "smell the flowers" we were making a beeline for the exit, that was until Dave wanted me to see the animals. I love animals and I could certainly take a detour to go and see their adorable little faces. I hadn't even realized at this point that there were several baby farm animals born from within days to a couple of months old. And I just became a pile of mush when I spotted the little guys...
Especially this precious little runt:
My heart literally just about melted and I instantly fell in love.
But alas we eventually had to leave otherwise we wouldn't have any time to eat. The plan was to go for Acai Bowls and that is exactly what we did.
The bowls had really hit the spot and fully energized us for hours to come - there were hours and hours to come...
Next stop was my appointment, then Whole Foods, then to the mall where we had quite a bit of luck and we're 3 out of 5 outfits (that I'm responsible for) on our way to Easter.
Cosette had to go to work, Dave needed a haircut, I still had more shopping to do - which was also successful.
Finally walking in my front door over 12 hours later and straight into the kitchen I went.
Today will be similar, but I did have to adjust a few things around based on helping out with my mom's schedule and cancelling ice skating due to teenage attitude problems - if you know what I mean. So I'm thinking I'll perhaps have some wiggle room between what is left on agenda for today.
The first event of the day starts in about an hour, for now we are currently sitting in the parking lot as Cosette is doing warm ups with her choir. The event starts in about an hour and is the kick off for our day and the first performance of the day. Later this afternoon is Chaplin's recital. And somewhere in there is our bike ride.
Anyhow I'm gonna sign off before I ramble on any further,
