Spin Cycle--Vortex, Polar or Otherwise

Vortex.  A word that has been bandied about in the media of recent.  At least in connection with Polar.  We were by passed by the so called polar vortex and had seasonal temps for our neck of the woods. But vortex means other things too.
Do you ever feel like life is swirling away with you?  Do you get sucked into an activity and it takes over you life?  Life runs away with me all the time. Last year felt like one huge merry go round that was going a bit to fast.  There were ups and downs but truly, I would have preferred a calmer ride.
This year has been better, but illness and injury have followed us out of last year. Things have to look up soon.  Starting with this weekend.
We have a much better reason to be swept into a vortex of fun--Bruiser's 5th Birthday party. He is getting a full on friends over party with games, cake, ice cream, presents--the works. To say he's excited is an understatement. Last night we had the grandparents over for a family celebration.

He's five now.  The last five years have whirled by and I can hardly believe that they have passed.  The vortex that is kids growing up is probably the most interesting, exasperating, and engulfing vortex that I could be caught up in. I wouldn't miss a minute.

Are you caught in the "Polar Vortex"? Or just a standard vortex that has taken over your life?  Spin it up and link it up.
Gretchen and Ginny Marie, would love to have you!

  1. He's FIVE! I guess I'm in a vortex too, because I can hardly believe that! Please with Bruiser a hearty Happy Birthday. He just couldn't be cuter!

    And thanks for linking with The Spin Cycle!

  2. What a couple of cuties. And I so get the huge smile on Grandma's face. No better vortex to be swept into than being a parent. Great post and Happy Birthday, Bruiser!

  4. Your boys are so cute! It brings me back to when my boys were that little. I get sucked up in so many vortexes I stopped fighting it.

  5. I think the kid vortex is the best one to be sucked up into! Happy Birthday to Bruiser!
