I have been teased recently, by different friends, for all my scheduling and planning. Yeah, it's summer, time to have fun, kick back, relax. But if you knew me you might think way to go, good job with that planning. I know things about myself. Like the fact that if I didn't have to be any where I wouldn't get dressed for the day until I had to leave (or before my husband was going to be home). Or if I didn't plan things for me and the kids I would turn on the tv. (My name is Stacey, and I am addicted to tv) and I would never turn it off. I would tell my kids to go play and no you can't watch tv. Some people would say, "Don't you have any self control?" to which I would have to answer, "On somethings no. But I do know my weakness" and this my friends is why I plan out my whole summer. There is also another reason. I want my kids to have fun. I want to go and do things and experience adventures together. So, I try to have one of those "experiences" everyday. If it doesn't work out oh well, but I tried. Maybe I won't always be like this, but it works for now.
If any of the teasers read this, I know you were teasing- no harm. I just felt the need to share.
