We are officially in the hot "dog days" of summer.
Which means the kids want to cool off in water.
Pretty much any water they can find.

Which don't get me wrong, is Awesome.
Especially the beach.   I do love the beach.

But it also means, mama has to spend a lot of time in her bathing suit.
I bought a new one this year, since I haven't been pregnant for over  4 years now, I figured it was time to trade in from the maternity one.

Swimsuit shopping is so much fun.
Said no one ever.

Now I consider myself to have a healthy self esteem - I've had 3 kids all via C Section, and I don't look 20 anymore:  but I certainly am no Beach Bunny anymore.

But most of me is still where it should be at least.
I try not to let such things get to me worked up though.   Honestly, the last thing I want inscribed on my tombstone would be in relation to the size of my ass.
I would hope there would be more important and interesting things about me.

I'm having a bit of trouble typing today, so I am a bit late to the Missing Words party.

Hoot, Hoot!  Hop in Losers -- we got berries to pick!
AngelGirl and ZooZoo wanted to check on the wild raspberry and blackberry plants that grow in the field across for our house.    And YES!!   There were berries.    Yum!  Yum!

And being a good mom, I of course held the thorny branches for them so they could raid the bushes: before the angry squirrel chattering at us the whole time could get them first.

He may have looked like this:

 Ok.  Perhaps not.
but he was a very angry squirrel.

Suffice to say, I still feel like I have tiny thorns in my fingertips today and typing is not going as fast as normal.

Perhaps we should stick to the wild strawberry plants in the backyard from now on.



Feeling Beachie

I REALLY NEED STATEMENTS! 
This week’s co-host is Elizabeth from Silver’s Book Reviews. She came up with the statements


The statements:


1.  If I eat too many strawberries, I will get a rash, or even a bad tummy ache.  I used to be more severely allergic to them, but it seems to be getting better.

Which Is Awesome.

2.   Running a marathon is one of those things that seems like a great idea; but then....

actually - no.
It doesn't sound like a great idea.

But I will shoot hoops for an hour.


3.  Why is it that there is still sand all over my house, when we haven't been to the beach in weeks?

Does it spontaneously reproduce once indoors?


4. Where do you find your Zen?
