Now that July 4th weekend has come and gone, I guess it’s time for reality to hit again. Back to the grind with the daily momming while Klay is at work all day. It was really nice having him around this weekend for the entire day. The kids loved having “da-deeeee” around (as Bex would say) and I enjoyed watching him play and love on them. 

I was totally all for this weekend and normally I’m not a July 4th holiday fan. Not that I’m not all about celebrating #merica and all that. I am, it just always seems to be a holiday that stresses me out. I know, every holiday stresses me out. You’re right. But I’d say July 4th ranks up there. 

All of the fireworks tend to scare me a bit. I love watching them, but I don’t want to light one, be near them when they go off, or have my family near them. There are too many things that can happen around FIREworks. They are really dangerous and they scare the shit out of my dogs, so I have to deal with that too. 

And like most holidays, the 5-0 is always prevalent on/around the 4th. There are so many people drinking and driving, it just gets a bit scary getting out with the kids. But this year, we actually got out and did some stuff with the kids since I’m healthier than I have been in two years.
