Adios June {a rant}

This was possibly the hardest month I've had in a while.  I wasn't sure I was going to make it to the end.  I'm not being over dramatic either.  It was also a month that flew right by, with little or no time to enjoy it.  But here I am, on the 30th, living to tale the tale.  Also it's about 109 outside and we (the family) have yet to leave the house.  It's just the kind of day I needed to recover from a month that almost beat me.

June started like this:

But really felt like this:

I'm going to go ahead and complain about the things I couldn't change, because that's progressive right?

Complaint worthy:
My mom got sick, like 2 trips to the ER sick.
My car broke down, as in dead with my mom on her way to the ER 
and John and the kids in the pool with no phone access.
Late for a hair appointment with no car seats.
Late afternoon naps which mean pj parties 
with a 3 year old that last till one am.
Mad Men season finales that leave me with important questions.
Four thirty am wake up calls to get to work on time.

It wasn't all bad.  In fact there were some great highlights.  My oldest turned six.  We completed kindergarten.  I started working out again.  And while this month was crazy full, busy, what have you.  I was still able to look back on some highlights.

Note worthy blessings:
Kindergarten ended, mama's heart broke, but First Grade here we come.
A wonderful Father's Day spent poolside.
Caitlin turned six and was spoiled for an entire week.
A night out with the girls to shop at Target with greens straws in our cups.
Catching up with a dear friend even for just 45 minutes.
Mom is on the mend.
My car is alive again.
Late summer nights spent in the front yard with our favorite people.
FURLOUGH, from my seasonal job.
Slowly starting to write and blog again

June, you almost killed me and I thought Jillian Michaels was tough.
But you are done, and I will miss you for all the blessings you brought.
Tell your friend July I'm still in recovery mode...
