I am up early and have a raging headache. I think it is from the allergens perking up again here in colorado. We have tapped into the monsoon and the more frequent rain is making everything grow and turn green again. It is nice to stop paying the city for water, and I am so grateful that the farmers are getting a little extra moisture although I fear it is too late for many of them. I grew up on a farm and my parents still rely on rain to grow crops and grass for the cattle and people so I am very tied to that lifestyle. I always tell my mom it makes me sad when I get rain and they don't. I want to grow green grass, but they grow wheat to feed the world. A big difference :)
1. Drink water - and lots of it!!! I have been seriously slacking in this area which is stunning considering it is the one thing I was already doing!!! I have been drinking too much soda/coffee and my stomach is killing me. So, time to break out the pink water bottle and get with it already.
2. Get the kids outside a little more. We need to grab their bikes and head out for a quick ride around the block (a commercial block) or something. They spent too much time inside yesterday.
Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
