Happy long weekend, y'all!
Whether you're lakin or campin or just enjoying some QT with your family and friends, I hope your Labor Day weekend is going swimmingly. Either literally or figuratively.
This past week, little McNugget and I have continued our adventures, as well as travels. That seems to be how our life is these days.
Between our A.C. puttering out and us having to shuffle back and forth from our sweet neighbor's house to baby daddy being deployed to help clean up Harvey's mess in Houston to hittin' the road to Louisiana with my bro- and sis-in-law, we've pretty much been living out of a suitcase once again.
But, even with those little hiccups to our daily life, we still have a roof over our heads, an air-conditioned, dry, safe place we can lay our heads down at night (even if it isn't our own home), plenty of healthy food in our fridge and pantry, and loads of love and support all around us. I cannot imagine what those mommies and sweet babies in Houston are going through.
Which is why I went on a rampage through my house looking for unopened baby supplies that little McNugget could share with those babies who have lost everything. He has a TON of blankets and stuffed animals and toiletries that he hasn't touched yet, so I figured he would want to let his little buddies in southeast Texas use them instead.
If you're a fellow Corsicana friend, you can drop off donations (clothing, cleaning supplies, nonperishable food, toys) at the Collin Street Bakery located off I-45 from now until further notice. And, maybe while you're there, you could head inside and grab a killer cup of coffee and gluten-free coconut macaroon. Just sayin....shameless plug, I know.
If you are not one of my neighbors but still want to help, contact your local Salvation Army or just do a quick google search to see what locations are collecting donations in your area. These people have lost everything, and most of them do not have flood insurance.
I just cannot imagine.
With that in mind, I really can't complain about my husband being deployed or my A.C. being kaputt or whatever first world problem I face today.
I am blessed. And with that, I hope to spread my blessings with others by sharing my clothing, my son's supplies, my husband, and, for you lovely little dew drops, my fitness ideas and inspirations.
That is making a difference, too, just in a varied way.
You don't have to pull people out of flood waters to rescue them.
Just a little nugget for you to marinate on this weekend.
Alrighty, enough of all that, onto the workouts! Starting next week, y'all glorious people I call neighbors can start joining me for lunchtime workouts at the Corsicana YMCA. Thirty minutes. Full body. Be there or be square.
