The Glory Days

Today is one of those dreamy Florida early spring days.  It feels warm but not hot and its sunny and beautiful.  This, this is why I have stayed in Florida.  I think about it as I get older and more used to sunshine and humidity and I don't believe I would live very many other places.  Of course never say never, I'm just so accustomed to this atmosphere and I genuinely like it.  There's a reason it's a desired retirement/vacation spot.  Of course ask me that in July when it's 103...

One thing I associate with these kinds of days is the leisure life of adolescence I led before.  The days where I'd get up for an early class or two at UCF (I loved earlier classes always, something refreshing about getting the grind out of the way and obviously easier parking!), to sauntering back home to hit the gym and then lay out at the pool.  About 4 o'clock I would head inside to get ready for my serving shift and wherever the night might lead after.  Study, sun, fun, hustle, repeat.  The glory days!

I'm off to admire the blue skies and think about my formally tanned toes.  I would never now not wear my beloved sunscreen!! #isirishwillburn #whydidntigetmymomsoliveskintone #didntgetitfromymomma

A man is not very tired. He is exhausted

I know. This is days after the initial blow of learning that this wonderful human being's life ended. What in the world. Talk about a cherished existence. The man my parents still rave about because of his stand up comedy, the man who forever changed the way I say "Hellloooooo" in an older British woman's voice, this great giant. How sad. I feel for the fact that Robin hit a level from which he could not rise. Depression, anxiety, stress are awful beasts.

I do not believe in the mentality, that someone who takes their life is selfish. Sure, it's not the kindest thing to leave behind for loved ones to cope with, but if something has it's grasp on a person, well, choices are made. It is devastating that there is still so much stigma for diseases like depression and anxiety. What?! Get the hell out of here with that mess. I would not wish it upon the biggest naysayer even to prove a point. So, to that, I say screw the assholes saying derogatory …

My dear, If at first you don't succeed, throw on another accessory & try, try again

Off to try, try again!

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
