In honor of the new month…
I may… get choked up when my son graduates college.
I may… not get around to my typical annual birthday treat debate since I’ll be spending most of the day on the road, driving home from the graduation with the graduate in tow.
I may… be glad that there is no scale around on my birthday. Something about that day makes me always mark my weight in my mind. But I’m confident I’d weigh at or near my goal weight, except for those inevitable pounds from several days of travel.
I may… watch a House marathon with my (husband and) youngest son when he gets home from college. I’ll also be catching up on the many episodes of Chopped that I’ve saved to watch with both my boys. Go figure – they like cooking competitions as much as I do:)
I may… cry during the last episode of Desperate Housewives.
I may… take a “posed” family photo while both boys are home. I guess I need to start thinking about what we can wear and which family member I can impose upon to try to get us all to smile at the same time.
I may… find a different day to celebrate Mother’s Day because I may be working. I don’t mind; hopefully my mom doesn’t either:)
I may… have to get someone to drive me to work this summer since we’ll be back to more drivers than cars.
I may… start feeling
confident comfortable, rather than nervous, about ringing sales and returns on the register. I may finally have less back aches from standing. I may feel guilty about asking for so much time off. The job is still going well but it sure is making all these trips out east more complicated.
I may… blog less often. Or without a schedule. Or I may not. I’ve said it before and, yet, here I am today.
I may… eat less meat to go along with my husband or eat more meat to go along with my teen, home from college. I may tear my hair out trying to plan family meals.
I may… read “Shades of Grey” to see what all the hype is about.
I may… bake sweets for my son’s “officially leaving the nest and relocating halfway across the country” party or I may let someone else handle desserts so I’m not “sampling” the batter or tempted by the wonderful smells coming from the oven. I may once again show my love with his favorite M & M cookies.
I may… paint my toenails for the first time this season. If I can find just the right color. I may decide I don’t like how it looks and I may start over. Or I may just be lazy and leave my nails alone. I may over-think this and so many other things. Okay – for sure I’ll over-think many things, that’s just me.
I may… babysit my three young nephews overnight this weekend. Which means lots of little boy energy. And three soccer games at three different locations but not at three different times. I may be reminded how glad I am that my boys are (for the most part) grown. I may need a nap.
I may… start doing cardio again!!!! My calf is still bothering me but I’ve sort of given up waiting for it to be “normal” again. I may regret my decision but there’s only one way to know.
What may you do this month?
The winner of the Snikiddy Snack giveaway was Diane! Really. Coincidentally. I’ll be announcing the winner of her book giveaway next week.
