Happy Mother's Day!

I would like to start this off by saying Thank you to all the Mom's, Mom's-to-be, Mother's, Momma's, Mum's and the like out there. I hope that I speak for many, when I say I appreciate all that you do, raising children be it this generation or the next. You have a never ending job, that has its moments, but at the end of the day may you always find a way to love (that only you can). May you be blessed with the ability to find happiness and joy in whatever messes come your way! Cheers to you! ('cause I'm sure you could probably use a drink right now.)
And it has been a good day. I spent this morning sleeping in and relaxing, then taking a walk to the dog park so Jackman could play with Brittni's two dogs. He really enjoyed the pond and was the only dog there to jump in and get the sticks we kept throwing. Go Jack!
After that was a lovely afternoon and evening with my Momma. We spent a good portion of it building her new yard swing that my siblings and I pitched in for. It's quite nice, and sturdily built if I do say so myself.
The evening was spent at dinner, not only with my Momma, but my grandma and dad and hubby as well. We went to the Reef n' Beef, and it may be old school, but it was actually quite wonderful, I would definitely recommend it.
When I say old school, I mean it was built in 1980, and it looks that way.
Overall a wonderful day, and if I haven't said it before, I am muchly enjoying my weekends off.
I do miss my regular customers though, and I almost wished I would have stuck around for quite a few of them as they did make my job very easy.
On the job note, I am still coaching most nights for another week and then I am down to just a few hours a week after. I have no idea what I am to do with myself then.
But I do have a bunch of coaching courses starting May 22, and I am very, very excited about it. Moving on to the next level of coaching and I can't wait.
Learning is what keeps the mind young and curious. Always keep learning, it does not matter what, just that you do.
I don't know if that has been said before, or should be quoted but it is very much a necessity of life. It may not matter much to some people now, but in those moments when you find yourself idle, start learning. If during that day you had even one question about something, look it up. If you're looking it up, take a step further and verify. You'll be impressed. Maybe by you, maybe by what you find, but you will be.

It seems I have digressed, but I do have a very strong yearning for knowledge. Even now I can't wait to get back to the book I was reading because I need to know what happens next.

What you're reading now was actually an entire paragraph entering the world of learning. A slight debate between movie knowledge and book smarts and how any good storyline that gets a person involved can be learning. But it's gone.

In the meantime, I would much like to get back to my book. And my attention span is short because it's constantly interrupted by the pain of my sunburn.
I am very crispy in a few places. I said it was a good day, but apparently I pissed the sun off recently.
