After two weeks vacationing in Arizona with my beautiful girls I’m back home. I always said I love the warm weather, however the last week the temperature went as high at 116 degrees. Like my daughter would say wait for July and August. Back to the two weeks I spend with my beautiful girls I got pampered by my daughter who has a Beauty Studio. From a facial to microblading my eyebrows-finally I’ve eyebrows after my cancer treatment I didn’t have any. I spend time with my granddaughters shopping, we went to the water park, the Phoenix Zoo, went hiking, and having ice cream, and my favorite drink slushies.
The most amazing day was spending the day of my birthday with them. When I wake up on June 7th, they took me to have brunch at Butters Pancake Café in Scottsdale and a nice dinner at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen in Phoenix. The following morning, I went to see The Domes in Casa Grande, AZ. What an amazing and interested it place, it really makes me think of who was the one who begun this project, why wasn’t finished, or maybe the aliens change their minds. I heard too many stories from those Domes. It was a fun trip also I went to check a home that maybe we will purchase for when we retired.
Now I’m back to North Dakota and my two granddaughters came to spend a month with us. So, we have plans for a few fun road trips we’re planning a trip to South Dakota, Medora, and Minnesota. I can’t believe my oldest granddaughter will be a freshman this fall. Time goes so fast and I want to enjoy every minute.
My husband also is a happy grandpa with all four grandkids for Father’s Day.
Here are a few pictures from my trip and I’m glad to be back.
I’ve been sick with the flu taking a lot of meds. However, I wake up this morning looking at this beauty.
This beauty makes me want to begin Christmas decoration. I’m blessed for this beauty, no matter if I’m still sick. I’m going back to bed, still not feeling good.
I’ve been dealing with depression what it looks like forever. I’ve days I feel great, energetic, and positive wanting to do anything. However, it can change in a second feeling opposite and wanting to be alone. The mood swings are interfering with my life and hurting the people I love.
My family wants me to make a few changes like eating healthier, meditate, and take a break. Lately I’ve been taking everything seriously and too personal and I need to stop. I want to be the person I was before instead I’ve turned on this moody and cranky person. It makes feel guilty and unhappy.
The word “pause” is a reflection on what I need to do. I’ve to reconnect with all the things that it makes me feel blessed. My daughter has suggested to disconnect with social media for a while such as Facebook. When I open my account, it was to reconnect with my family and longtime friends. In the beginning, it was exciting to find them to look at their family pictures and how much they have accomplished. However, the fun and the excitement completely gone. Facebook has turned into a bunch of complainers who loves to spread their negativity. Sadly, I’ve to eliminate some from my list of friends, including family members.
I won’t close my account. I’ve nice people I care very much, I simply want to take a break. Very soon school will be over and my vacation will begin. It will be time for camping with my grandkids also planning a few trips out of the state.
For now, I’m keeping my Pinterest and my blog. I feel relaxed when I’m blogging or pinning of course, watch a few TV shows, too. Taking care of myself will be good at the end it will take me on a journey to a new me.
