Hi ya Gang,
September 1 – I really can’t get my head around that! I just opened the pool for gods sake! 😉 I know you are all busy trying to fit in that last bit of fun via the CNE, so I’ll try to keep this short!
NEWS FLASH – I bought a bug; a VW Bug Convertible, black and shiny. I named her #Veronica. I hashtag her to make it more official. Apparently dudes don’t name their cars, because the minute she arrived, I was mocked by all the men folk in my home. All I can say is, I hope nobody ever wants to borrow #Veronica once they figure out how fun she can be.
I can’t put into words the pure joy I am having driving her around town, and as much as this all sounds a little cra cra, there is something so freeing about having the wind in your face, singing at the top of your lungs, and your hair blowing in the wind. I do feel I want to wear a silk scarf like in the movies, “screen goddess, Grace Kelly..” but I think I’m more of a Bridget Jones kinda gal! See for yourself….
That’s pretty much how I look when I arrive at work, but again, #messyhairdon’tcare.
I’ve been busy helping my middle boy pack up all his worldly belongings for his 4th and final year at college. You think it gets easier, but we still have the same discussions over what to bring and what not to. I feel at his age, popping Flintstone vitamins isn’t really appropriate and I’m most sure they are past the ‘best before” date. Regardless, as much as I can’t wait to clean up things around his “living space”, I know I’ll still shed a wee tear for the boy.
We paid a visit to Staples last night, and did have a bit of a chuckle listening to all the parents screaming at their kids. We were trying to get in and get out as quickly as possible, purchasing only a binder, but I couldn’t help but laugh at the newbies there, list in hand, purchasing anything and everything to just get the hell out. Then the fighting..” no, put that back, who uses tennis balls anymore…”; “no, put that back, it’s too expensive, you don’t need 800 crayons..”, and my fav, “Jesus Christ, just pick one, and let’s get going!” You kiss your kids with that mouth? It’s really a wonderful bonding time.. that “most wonderful time of the year.”
So speaking of back to school…here is my latest article from this months Sept. Issue of Neighbours Magazine ~ all about just that. Heading off to school, fall and time for scheduling.
I do hope Mother Nature decides to play nice so we can perhaps enjoy this last long weekend with some sunshine. Good luck to all those heading off to school, young and old. I’m outta here… my sweet ride awaits!
Next week ~ Ride updates, and Poppin’ tags 🙂
