My Summer Plans

When I was a kid, half of my summer was spent reading a really good book that I’ve been dying to for that whole year {yes, I’ve always been a book worm}, a quarter of it spent on vacation in Manila to spend time with my Mom and my siblings and a quarter of it doing some kind of summer activity like swimming, doing sports or enrolling in a summer class of some sort.

I did take swimming lessons as a kid, and I learned how not to drown, but I really can’t swim swim, you know? :)) And as for sports, I remember when I was 8 and my grandma enrolled me in like a basketball camp of something, I only went the first day and I never came back, Sports and I, we’re civil, but we’re so not friends. :)) I did take ballet, and that was something I love, so I took it every summer that I can, alternating with summer ballet programs here and in Manila.

When I was a teen, summers were spent hanging out with my best friends, horseback riding and then partying at night. I love horseback riding, it’s quite an exhilarating experience, if I had the time, I’d do it more.

Now that I have kids on my own, summer to me means being able to sleep in on weekdays and focus on my tasks online, if I have any. If not, it means lounging with a really good book I’ve been dying to read and just hanging out with the kids, watching tv, playing games online and offline and just hanging out.

And because I grew up not being able to spend enough time with my parents, I’ve made it my life’s mission to spend every waking moment with my kids whenever I can, because it’s important to me that they feel how much they mean to me. I know my parents love me, that’s a given, but it would have been nice to have actually felt it, you know? Oh sure, my mom and dad sort of made up for it when I was older and married with kids by approving of B and loving my kids, but as a child, I wish I was hugged more and cuddled and snuggled and all those cheesy stuff children with doting parents find annoying. When they’re older, these are the things that will make their hearts smile.:)

Anyway, enough with my traumatic dramatic childhood, or lack thereof, and onto my plans to make this a very memorable summer for my children. :D

Today, I don’t need to enroll them in a special summer class, I can pretty much do it myself and if I don’t know how to, we can all learn through YouTube! I so love the internet! :x

So Chakai and Lucas want to learn how to play the guitar, I’ve been wanting to buy a guitar, I saw this cool fender fa 100 online and is only $99, I think it’s a pretty good deal, so if I can’t find one exactly like that in the mall for exactly the same price, I’m definitely going to buy it.

Chakai and I have already started learning advance belly dancing moves via YouTube and Lucas and I have done some crafts with glue and popsicle sticks. On the weekends, B tries to teach them how to play sports, because as you know, I’m not sporty. At. All. ;)) Oh don’t get me wrong, I’m not a wimp and can still pretty much beat up someone’s ass if I choose to, I just don’t love the idea of balls bouncing and flying around and possibly hitting me on the face.:P *thinks about Marsha Brady’s nose after she got hit with a football. {shudders}*

I’m really super excited about how awesome this summer will turn out to be.

There Is Nothing Wrong With Being Nosy!

About 

I am a freelance writer who blogs to my heart's content when I have no articles to ghost write for other people.

I love what I do because I can stay at home and take care of my kids and my husband while I earn some money so I can buy stuff my kids want, eat out every Sunday night, go out for coffee with my friends, pay for my credit card and internet and pamper myself in the salon to keep my husband attracted to me. LOL. :D

I am who I am. I am not perfect nor I try to be, I have grown comfortable in my own skin and I love myself. I have accepted the fact that I can't please everybody, so I don't strain myself to even bother. What matters is that my friends and family know me and accept me for who I am, warts and all. :)
