This is a long weekend event, and I am extremely excited. My husband, @daddyjustin, normally works 6 days a week and over 50 hours a week. He has taken a vacation day today and will have Monday off in observance of Memorial Day! I have not seen my husband this much in I don’t know how long. I am super excited!!
I would like to take the kids to my aunt Robin’s gravestone as we used to go two times a year. As a single mother I took my oldest to my aunt’s grave in October for her birthday remembrance and in May for memorial day. As life gets crazy busy, this is something I have neglected and it has been weighing on my mind. Do you have a relative you visit on a regular basis each year? If not, you should make the time. I recall giving others a hard time because they say that life’s just too busy now and they can not find the time to visit the graves of a loved one – I always felt YOU MAKE TIME for those you love regardless of whether they are here on our Earth or resiting in peace. I need to take the time this weekend to go see my Aunt Robin with the kids, Miss Ki recalls going every year and has requested to bring flowers up to her gravestone. I think it’s important to teach your children about showing respect & love to those who are no longer with us.
We will be having a HUGE yard/garage sale this weekend. We need to clean house! Our family is not big on being pack rats, but my husband is a big computer parts & accessory collector. Apparently the hobby of building computers has taken over our garage and our basement, so I hope we can sell some of these items to make more room in our home & garage!
There is a lot to do this weekend but I hope we can have time for a bonfire, BBQ and some good ol’ family fun on the slip n slide. I have already put in my request to have the slip n slide up and ready later today – since it is nearing 90 degrees already at 11am on Friday … yeah I think we will need some cool down time later!
What will you and your loved ones be doing this weekend? I look forward to hearing about your super weekend!
