This week has flowed to a different beat.
I left on Monday for a week at the beach.
Meeting up with a portion of our family.
There are 10 of us at the condo.
Yes 10 human beings.
8 adults and 2 kids.
More fun than you can imagine!
However, privacy is just a dream! Haha but oh so true
Having so many of us has afforded this mama something that she hasn’t had in over 6 years… a beach cocktail. Thank you my dear sweet cousin for just handing me the cup and saying, “enjoy”!
I am not a big drinker at all, however, I do enjoy a drink on occasion.
My view from the condo!
I forgot how much fun it is to sit back and enjoy myself as I am usually constantly “on” with the boy.
Having others around affords me the luxury of just sitting back and chilling out.
I mean I am still “on” but it’s more laid back.
I love it!
I’m not used to having all these people watch my boy and it’s like a mini vacation.
I know everyone isn’t as blessed or as lucky as I am to have the awesome family that I do.
It is challenging somewhat space wise.
As OCD as I am this can be a hurdle I have to overcome. But it seems easier and easier with less stress and knowing I am not alone.
Family and friends you love and trust are invaluable these days.
Anyone who knows me knows I also need my quite me time.
Something a bit hard to come by sharing space and schedules with so many folks!
I must say that I have been blessed with spaces of quite time because these people Know I need it.
Like being able to write my blog and a maybe a few other articles.
It’s not like I can just go and grab some words off the web and copy and paste it and call it my own. Not only is it plagiarism but it’s just not something I can do!
So I get my time!
And like just now it got interrupted but it was just my brother, also working, while our kiddos are at the beach with everyone else so we can work.
Of course since we don’t get to spend as much time together as we would like to do. And I miss the banter of how we are. Complimenting and berating each other in the same breath! Ah sibling love!
It really is just This though that makes me so relaxed.
Being able to enjoy my family. Those I don’t get to see as much as we’d like and spend quality moments with them.
All from my happy-find-my-soul-spot!
It doesn’t get much better than this!
Another fabulous view
Happy Friday Y’all!
Make it Freaking Fabulous!
