I'm so glad that Tuesday is here - I'm halfway done with my week at this point. I'm taking Friday off and heading to Nashville with Mr. Potts to visit my dad and step-mom for the weekend. Families can be hard sometimes, especially when you have 4 sets. Between myself and Mr. Potts we have 2 dads and step-mom, 1 mom and step-dad and 1 mom. Not to mention the rest of the family (sister, grandmother, aunts/uncles, cousins) and friends that are in Louisville. It makes it really hard at holidays and we usually come home more exhausted than when we left. I always feel that my dad gets shafted since he is in Nashville. We try to make an effort to go up & see them and also to see them when they're in town.
Yesterday flew by in such a blur - did anyone else feel as if they time escaped them? I left work a little later than I had intended, but still made it to the gym to go to a Strength and Stability class. Thank goodness for Mr. Potts - he made dinner last night. He is the "Grill Master" in our home which makes it easy for me on nights when I'll go to the gym after work. It doesn't hurt that his grilling is also pretty tasty.
Tonight we have a birthday to celebrate. One of our neighbors is having people over to celebrate. She invited everyone with the title, "Why let a horrific break-up ruin a perfectly good birthday?". She's staying positive about a negative part of her life. Definitely something we can all learn from, no?
Before we go over tonight, I'm going to get Hayden out for a quick walk. The temperature has been in the high 80's for a while. Such a nice change of pace from 90+ (close to 100). I'm ready for fall though. The days when the weather is still warm, but at night, you're ready to pull on a sweatshirt and cuddle up with a blanket. Anyone else ready for that?
While you're at it today, try to remember the small things. I'm cherishing the memory of my niece as she's getting ready to fall asleep this weekend turning to hug me and whispering, "I love you Aunt Mrs. Potts." It brings a smile to my face every time.
My favorite picture from the weekend. I had to share it again.
