2020 FAST FORWARD – August

Are you there blogging world? It’s me, Mimi.
I’m alive and doing okay.
I’ve been trying to get back into the vibe of posting for sooo long…
I wrote this last month.


– JULY 1 – WEDNESDAY
Wordless Wednesday


– JULY 2 – THURSDAY
Dear July, don’t be an asshole.

This is my wish for July.
And August.
And September, October, November, and December.
And please oh please to the powers that be…
Let 2021 be the dullest, most boring, humdrum, ordinary, uninteresting, tedious, commonplace, monotonous, routine, prosaic year ever!
Except for that part where I win the lottery.


– JULY 3 FRIDAY
I’m with you John…


– JULY 4 – SATURDAY
Sooo… This happened…
My son and his boyfriend got engaged at Lake Michigan today and I am over the moon for them! And for me! And for the whole family! They are such good, kind, and hysterically funny people.

Oh, and this happened too!
Both events cause for fireworks!
Both signs of freedom.


– JULY 5 – SUNDAY


– JULY 6 – MONDAY
Happy Birthday to my 1st born!!!
Somehow my oldest boy will always be my baby boy…
So proud of the man he has become.


JULY 7 TUESDAY
And then the rest of the month was just the rest of the month…
Plus or minus a few hundred tears and a few broken hearts.


– AUGUST 1 – SATURDAY
Our cups runneth over…


And so, here we are. August 2020.
But just your heart because I’m pretty sure singing with your mouth is no longer allowed.


We’re in the middle of some heatwaves out here but not many wildfires so that’s a bonus.
I’m definitely ready for some cooler temps but the sunshine can stay as long as it wants.
I wish it was the medicine to make this Covid crap go away!
Super, super done with this whole mess.
The virus, the politics, masks, no masks, rioting, and just all of the hatefulness…


There’s no way I can catch up on a month’s worth of blog post readings but I’m definitely going to do what I can.
When I drop out of the blogging world I really drop out of the blogging world and I always miss you guys so much.

I hope you’re all doing well. Surviving the heat and the virus.
I’m doing okay.
Missing my lit’l Luci. I swear I see her and hear her all the time. Sometimes it feels like she’s still sleeping with me.
It’s moments like those that turn me into a puddle of tears… I miss her so much. ❤

Anyway, Happy August. Stay safe.
