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 made it through the month of April using my bullet journal. Except for the last week of April when I ended with a kidney infection and I almost ended in the ER. Most of the time I was in bed with lots of pain. I was treated with antibiotics for seven days and missed a day of work. Imagine working with that pain, feeling chills, and fever. I still made it through the day until Friday when I can’t handle it anymore. The pain is over and I’m feeling stronger by the day.
I was telling my husband since I’m getting closer to the big 6-0, I’m feeling too sick and old. He smiles, he knows when to be quiet. He’s a smart man.
Going back to my bullet journal for the first month it feels I accomplished a few things. It’s not a fancy journal with drawings or stickers, however it’s doing the purpose of keeping me on track and not forgetting the tasks that can later it makes me feel sorry for not finishing on time. Starting in May I make a nice page for scheduling my books for review and more time for writing for my blog.
What do I have for the month of May? Well, I’m counting the days for my summer vacation only 16 days of work (school ends on the 24th). Preparing a few trips for the summer and to be with my wonderful girls who are also waiting to spend time with grandma.
Tomorrow is our last day of school. Hooray! The school staff and students have been counting the days left since the first of May. We’ve been working hard packing and cleaning the kitchen. The fridge and freezer are already empty and by the end of tomorrow a quick inventory.
Tomorrow’s lunch would a bag with a sandwich, carrots, applesauce, chips, and a juice. It’s a simple lunch with a little bit too clean. Pick a bag, grab a milk, and enjoy. Meanwhile the kids eat, we will finish cleaning the kitchen and putting away the rest of the supplies. By 2pm and with a quick inventory and orders for the fall all done, we will say our goodbyes. They will be tears for the ones who are retiring and for the kids who are graduating and moving away.
We will take our bags and turn the lights off. We will disappear for a while with a huge smile, knowing we’ve a wonderful school year.
And for the next three months, I will be enjoying my summer vacation…. recharging for the next round.

My heart detonates of happiness as soon I saw my granddaughters faces at the airport. I spend a day with my daughter before heading back home. The girls would hold my hands and they won’t let it go. Now we’re back home and ready to spend our fun summer with lots of love.
