It’s kind of hard to believe it’s already August. Where has the summer gone? As we kick off the first full week of the last month of summer, there are some things to celebrate, heroic military members and the Nutmeg state among them. As always, there are some excuses to indulge in some food, but luckily for me, they are mostly things I don’t like so I’ll be staying on my diet this week.
Monday, August 5th
National Underwear Day
Please wear it. I need to know there’s an extra layer between me and your bits.
National Work Like A Dog Day
Ugh. No. It’s Monday. My brain doesn’t fully turn on until Tuesday.

Purple Heart Day
“The Purple Heart Medal is awarded to members of the armed forces of the U.S. who are wounded by an instrument of war in the hands of the enemy and posthumously to the next of kin in the name of those who are killed in action or die of wounds received in action. It is specifically a combat decoration.” Visit purpleheart.org to learn more.
