Random thoughts and fill in fun

June 7, 2013

Random thoughts:

– Today is day two of the kids summer break and the sun is finally peeking through the clouds. If all goes well they’ll finally be able to hop in the pool and have some fun. In a bit of an ironic twist, we had our first Tropical Storm of the season on the first day of summer break. Luckily, we were spared the worst of it and only had to deal with some blustery winds and some rain. A town north of us was not so lucky and suffered through a tornado.

– The hubby and I had a movie night last night, we watched the new(ish) Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. We really liked it. I don’t know what it is but I really love all the super hero movies — Spider-Man, Superman (cannot wait for Man of Steele), Iron Man, Captain America, The Avengers and Thor. Love them all. Maybe it has something to do with all those tight suits and muscles – who knows! 🙂

– Middle brought home a beach ball for her little sister and ever since Wednesday, all I’ve been saying is: “Please stop playing with that in the house!” She’ll stop for a few minutes and as soon as she thinks I’m not paying attention she starts again. Time to throw that ball in the pool…

– Tomorrow I go in for training and orientation and open house later in the afternoon. If I wasn’t so excited, I would crumble about having to be up and about so early on a Saturday morning. But I’m looking forward to it and hope for an amazing experience. Summer camp here we come!!!

– Talking about summer camp… I will try my best and keep up with all things blog related but I may need a few days to get my bearings, so please, forgive me if I don’t read and comment as much as I am now!!! I’ll be pretty much working a full-time schedule and will have to see how my evenings pan out. I’m going to try to schedule a few posts and then go from there. I hope, you all will stick around to hear about my adventures as a summer camp counselor. 🙂

    I am stuck on that paragraph about Avengers and Thor and tight uniforms…….. sorry….where were we? LOL

    you can have some of our cooler weather! after warmth and humidity for one whole week, we are back to cold and rainy. Come on Summer!!
    But having a husband who is willing and able to cook — that can make any day sunny!!

      Yes, to that last part. Came home today from my first day at work in forever and there was homemade chili bubbling away on the stove! Win!!! 🙂

    Hehehe – we got the same #3! I guess you sent us your rain, because it hasn’t stopped since yesterday 🙁 I wish you all the best combining your ‘full time job/schedule’ with the rest of your life, I know I’m having a hard time making time…

    • Susi June 8, 2013 at 6:51 pm

      Claudia, it’ll take some getting used to that’s for sure. Only good thing is that I won’t bring any work home with me from this one… That makes it a bit easier! 🙂

    I think you may be a bit confused, “Man of Steel” is Superman’s nickname… “Man of Steele” would be on NBC and work For Stephanie Zimbalist! 😉

    • Susi June 8, 2013 at 6:53 pm

      Okay. Thanks for the clarification… It was a typo!!!! 🙂

    I am so happy about camp… Sweetheart told me yesterday… I love camp – so jealous!

    I love that Marc cooks too – he does the weekdays because I always come home after him…

      It was nice coming home to some homemade chili this afternoon after my first day of work! 🙂

    I’m so with you on the cooking and the Netflix. I love to come home from work and see that my husband has been in the kitchen. It makes going from being a stay-at-home mom to a working mother so much easier to handle. As far as Netflix, I LOVE that you can stop a show or movie in the middle and pick back up later. I can’t seem to stay awake for a whole movie anymore.

    • Susi June 9, 2013 at 4:35 pm

      Yeah, I love the commercial free shows… You can sit and watch a whole season in one sitting! 🙂

    I can so relate on the ball in the house. My kids all play soccer and I constantly hear the ball bouncing around in the house…they dribble it and practice moves…I have pretty much given up hope on stopping them. But I put my foot down if it goes in the air. That is absolutely not allowed!

    • Susi June 12, 2013 at 10:38 pm

      Yeah, it’s the throwing that leads to issues. 🙂
