If you ask Juice to describe me, he always says, "She's a planner." After I get over being called a book that's only good for a year, I realize that he is right. I'm a planner. And I always have been. I love to have things planned way in advance. The kids kind of let me be more of a "roll with the punches" kind of gal but I still love to plan. And want to plan. Juice is not that way. I suppose that's why we go together so well.
This summer is going to be big. I have so many fun plans swirling around in my head. I figured I needed to make a list so why not list it all for the joys of the Internet? :) Feel free to skip it unless you want to know what I've got planned through the rest of the year. (Yes, I'm that kind of planner.)
March- Pirate's surgery is this month. Also, Juice's 31st birthday on the 31st. How much do you want to bet we don't do anything this year.
April- The boys turn 2! We'll go out to dinner. Butterfly also starts swimming lessons again and says good bye to dance lessons.
May- Butterfly turns 5! She wants a swimming party. I told her no. Maybe we can have a sprinkler party. Do you think it would be too cold for that? Also, we are headed to Utah! We'll be there (probably) from the 21st-June 5th. I have many people to see and things to do. Hopefully we'll get to all of it.
June- We return to Maryland with Flower, our niece, in tow. (Hopefully!) Flower will have a part time job around here this time since I don't need AS much help with the kids. There will be berry picking. There will be an aquarium membership to make use of. There will be trips to the zoo, the parks, Mt. Vernon. This is a month I'm really looking forward to. Butterfly will also be starting violin lessons.
July- I think this month we are thinking of taking a weekend away with Flower. Maybe we'll go to the beach for a few days instead of a few hours. Maybe we'll go to Chincoteague and see the wild ponies again. There's also the 4th of July which I'm totally going to talk Juice into taking us down on the mall this year. We'll have Flower, we can manage! After the inauguration, this should be easy! :)
August- I am going on a girl's weekend away with my friend Lolli to NYC. This is my 30th birthday present to me. I'm excited but nervous. Also, we have to send Flower back to her house this month so we'll have to plan something really fun. I know! Let's go see a museum! ;)
September- Happy 30th Birthday to me! Butterfly starts SCHOOL! My parents are coming to visit for a week at my birthday and I am SO excited to have them come out again.
October- Off to the PA Renn Faire this year and a nice weekend away. Also, Halloween.
Okay, now I'm starting to think I'm strange. A whole year planned out? Already? Well, it is just a rough outline. :) But still, I think time will fly and before you know it, I'll be back planning next year's summer!
