Summer break starts tomorrow, May 29, 2015 for me. My kids will officially out of school. This summer I'm making a bigger effort to just enjoy the season. I've spent every summer since my kids were born stressing and worrying about money, work, life that I dread the summer all together.
Then the other day, my laptop had a major problem and it will not usable aka my laptop died. I mourned and even cried over my laptop for about 15 minutes then realized that it's just a piece of equipment that I can get replaced....when I can get it replaced.
My dead laptop put in perspective that I've lost much more a laptop: one apartment, one rental home, two jobs, my health SEVERAL times, my mind SEVERAL times, and loved ones to sickness over 11 years. All those things trump a $300 laptop that I had for 5 years. Although rough and barely hanging on sometimes, I still have my LIFE.
So, I want to do some fun and educational things that I haven't done. Some of the things on this list you will not believe I haven't done or tried. LOL! I admit, I've lived a very closed off life for awhile. Here we go:
-Try a professional shellac or gel manicure
-Get regular pedicures( at least every three weeks)
-Buy and try a new high end mascara
-Try Chipotle( let me know what to eat there in the comments!!)
-Wear my natural hair out
-Have some fun with my natural hair
-Find two short wigs
-Make compound butter
-Make potato salad
-Buy a grill
-Make ice coffee
-Make an "adult" Popsicles
-Find the perfect orange lipstick
So far, I'm good with this list, but if something else wonderful to try or do comes up, I'll add it. Maybe I'll start a summer journal just for my experiences like some people travel journal.
So what are your plans for the summer, big or small? Let me know in the comments!!
