Spring Break ....Breakdown

Oh how nice of the public school system to give students two weeks off for spring break/vacation. "We will have so much time to spend with the kids to bond and vacation as a family",they say. Are there really family's out there that have it all together all the time and it's bliss and butterflies all day? Well sorry for the heavy dose of sarcasm but it is day 1 and the kids already broke me and honey this is in no way a vacation. Just keeping it real folks, I'm a 24/7  mom and I feel like heading for the hills..literally.

Perhaps we need a change of scenery, an adventure, wide open space to be wild. Camping sounds camping sounds great. Mental bubble just burst over my head, weather still a little chilly, hubby still has to work, etc, etc, etc. What really makes a camping experience anyway? A tent, fire, nature, crafts, stories, food...wait a minute, seems all this could possibly lie outside my backdoor! The gray clouds seems to have parted just a little. Camp  Sol Y Luna (aka this little homestead ) sounds very interesting. I have planning and Pinterest perusing to do. If you don't hear from me in a few days don't bother sending a search party these darling children of mine are carnivores and have the ability to consume me whole.

~ A side note worth reading ~

Seriously folks I love my children and would do anything for them. This rant is way of sneaking off for a few minutes, locking my door and getting out my current frustration. In the process an" aha moment "occurred and I'm excited to pull it all together. If you feel me can I get a hallelujah, now get back to parenting, where not on vacation  (wink).

P.S. If anyone knows of free or low cost things to do in Sacramento during these next two weeks...hook a mama up with the info. Thanks in advance.

Corner View ~ Imagination

action of forming new ideas,the ability of the mind to be creative & resourceful

I racked my brain trying to imagine what my post for imagination would be. Every time without fail John Lennon sang to me. I deeply resonate with this message for when I hear this song tears come. In our generations that span from the past to the future, wiser words could not be sung to the hearts of humanity, a battle cry for unity and universal love .  

Corner View is a global collective hosted by Francesca where bloggers share their view on a pre-arranged theme. Leave your link and explore more "imagination".

Tone It Up Tuesday

Spring has sprung yay, it's bikini season ugggh! Time to shape up . I'm currently committing myself to follow through with the weekly schedules on Tone It Up. All you really need is access to the web, hand weights, yoga mat, and time to dedicate to yourself. That's right free workouts in your own home, I fit mine in right before I get the kiddos up for school. Bonus....your trainers Karena & Katrina do most of their workouts from the beach, that's  where my mental state has been lately if you can't tell my new blog layout (wink). Here's to planting new goals for Spring.

This pic was from February's #LoveYourBodyChallenge, I'm working towards this goal again .

Finding my way back home

             Sometimes  you need to venture off and seek what lays beyond the horizon. When your journey loops you back home you realize that is where the heart thrives. On this Spring Equinox I start fresh where I first began.
