J is for June

Welcome to J!  Yes, I’m still sticking with the Blogging A to Z Challenge even though I’m still without direction.  I guess I’ll just keep poking at it until it’s dead!  I am enjoying it although I feel as though I face each new letter with sheer terror.

J is for June.  I’m not really a Summer person, so that’s not my reason for choosing June.  Summer will be starting, but I hate the whole heat and humidity thing so I really just want to cover my head.

Two good reasons for looking forward to June.  Our grandson will be graduating from high school.  That’s a very exciting thing for him and for us.  After graduation, he’ll be going into the Army.  If you knew this young man, you would have known that this would happen since he was a little boy.  He’s been in the ROTC for the Air Force for the last three years and has been to two leadership boot camps during that time.  We’ll be attending a special award ceremony for him this evening and I’m very excited.  Of course, please don’t talk to me in August when he actually leaves.  But that’s another story altogether.

The other reason I’m looking forward to June comes at the end of the month. You’ve all heard me talking about sorting and packing and working toward a yard sale “some time” this summer.  I just found out that the town wide yard sale will be at the end of June.  It’s great because the woman organizing it always advertises it.  People come armed with a list of all of the sales in town.  People are out and looking so I have a much better chance of getting rid of things that way.

I can sometimes drag my feet if something is coming at some vague time in the future.  I work much better when I have a target.  I’m so excited that I can now put my plan into action.  I’ve been doing well and sorting things out and being very unsentimental about it.  That’s the only real way to get rid of this stuff.

You’ll be hearing lots more about this as the weeks go on.  Hope it doesn’t make you too crazy.  I think I’ve got that covered anyway!  Looking forward to June!!

Happy Thursday!

  2. Sounds like you have some lovely plans for June – exciting times 🙂

  3. I am with you Fran, I need to organize and clean out my whole house. I do it a lot, but for sure I need to do a serious clean, where I am ‘unsentimental’ as you say 🙂

    • Marie, that’s the hardest thing to do. The last time I moved, which is now more than 20 years ago, I did that and it worked. Unfortunately, a lot of things have found their way into the house that again, need to be sorted out…with my eyes closed!

  4. I’m looking forward to June weather as well. I need a break from the cold, dark and dreary.
