I’ve been working on my flexibility this week. Not my physical agility (though that could certainly use some “work“, too) , but mental and emotional flexibility. Lifestyle flexibility goes along with that. My “planning” and scheduling have been challenged for the last few days and I’ve had to accept last minute changes and a few unexpected long-term changes. (I guess missing a blog post now and then goes along with that flexibility.)
I decided that, beginning June 1st, I was going to reclaim my old self - the easy going ready to roll person I used to be. That was a great time to start that, too. Our weekend plans definitely went differently from the original plan and, you know what? It was still a nice, relaxing weekend - nothing exciting, but enjoyable.
Our Monday went quite differently than my original thoughts had indicated. First, we had last minute houseguests coming for the night. Not a big problem. Then, about noon, The Big Guy called home and announced a major decision as to a major change in our way of life. (I’ll discuss that change at a later date.) Ultimately, it should be a good change but there was an element of surprise on my part. It will definitely change our day-to-day lifestyle and will take some adjusting for all involved. I’ve been assimilating that information for the last 36 hours or so. (I’ve reminded myself about that flexibility thing a number of times .)

Today, our plans were designed around a fun day for the two of us. We made these plans mid-week last week and had a fairly good idea as to how the day would go. Rain was not a part of that formula - lots of rain, to be exact. We flexed a bit, watched the weather and decided to give it a go as it looked like it would be clearing in a few hours. (A decision we made at 6:30 a.m.) The few hours turned into more like 6-7 hours but we rolled with it. Let’s just say, our arrival on any New Jersey beach this Spring has not been met with sunshine!! All of the pictures here today were taken on the Atlantic City boardwalk in front of Bally’s Wild Wild West Casino after it stopped raining. We flexed (a lot) today and had a good time anyway

Hope y’all had a good one, too.

**Don’t forget Working the Shows Wednesday tomorrow.
