What a Day!! Pics of Yard Work and my Beautiful Daughter's Grad Pic!!!

Sunday, June 08, 2014

So today was a slew of things... good, bad, sad, happy...

It started with me feeling a bit bad with not going to Zumba due to a lingering headache/migraine... But once I recovered - I went to work on my yard... Here's some before and after shots. I originally thought of putting more patio stones but because it's a condo - it requires board approval - so it's going to be sod ... which the property manager will provide (as I have done all the hard work).

These are some of the "BEFORE" shots

And then today I received a message confirming that my daughter was going to graduate!! She has been home schooling and it has been tooth and nail - I didn't know if she would do it but she IS!! Her celebration dinner is on June 17th!!

So I went ahead and finally posted the graduation pictures I paid for ... because it's happening!! emoticon I am SOOOOO proud!!

It has been a very Emotional day!!

Watching the end of the telethon and the "in memory" videos of the young lives taken too soon. Hearing the news about my oldest's graduation and dealing with my youngest being right out dis-respectful of any limits or rules...

Tomorrow is a new day and honestly - despite my challenges - I continue to feel BLESSED and I am very grateful for all I have in my life.

The balance comes from SELF care... which for me is in the form of dates... next one is on Tuesday! emoticon
