I tell ya, this summer thing is much easier to handle with the kids in summer classes from 8-12, four days a week! I’ve been trying to keep them busy, but still have some fun…I think its working.
Heard “Every Body Wants To Rule The World” by Tears for Fears this morning and BAM, I was 7 years old, living in the sugar shack- wondering when the next school roller skating party was going to be & would my mom give me a dollar to by some sixlets at the rink. Painting my nails with sheer purple sparkle nail polish to match my puff sleeved purple (similar to this) jacket. It was a nice little trip down memory lane!
It never ceases to amaze me how powerful sounds and smells can be at triggering memories.
