Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I need to get a handle on things before it becomes December. I cannot believe that it’s the middle of stinking August. The summer is almost over! I haven’t even been to the lake yet! I haven’t had a picnic, went camping, or rode horse. WOW I need to get it together! Pretty soon I’ll be complaining that I didn’t get to sled, throw a snowball, or give my little brother a whitewash. I think I need to slow down and smell those proverbial roses everyone keeps talking about.
I’ve got so many things going on that I’m about ready to burst at the seams. There are so many ideas bouncing around inside my skull that I have to write them all down so I don’t forget them a couple minutes later. It happens. Like right now. What was the point I am trying to make? Oh yeah….roses….right.
It always seems like I’m writing about slowing down, and enjoying life. Obviously this is something I need to do more often. My subconscious is trying to tell me something. More like blatantly scream it at me every day! Helllllloooo this is a sign.
Well I think I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way for me to do this is to travel. Sometimes you just have to go, you know? Usually my only troubles are trying to convince someone to go with me, but I’m usually quite persuasive. Spontaneity is my specialty when it comes to traveling.
I convinced my sister to go to Medora yesterday. Even though we both had to get up in the morning for work the next day (her earlier than I). It turned out to be the most beautiful day, great temperature and even a little breeze! There’s never a breeze when we go to Medora! It was meant to be!!! Of course Medora is the greatest place for my new obsession…INSTAGRAM! So many filters! So many options! So magical!
Here are a couple pics from our trip. We also got to eat the Steak Fondue and go to the musical. It was a great show and I’m so glad we went, even though I can barely type this from fatigue and she is probably asleep on her desk and drooling on her sticky notes as I write this. BUT WE’RE ENJOYING LIFE RIGHT? Yeeehhaaaww!
