Forgive me friends for I have let you down. It was my intent to attempt to blog regularly this summer. You can see how smoothly it’s gone, huh?
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Well, summer just screams “be lazy”….or at least to me. In fact, I rarely know the day of the week unless I check the calendar.
What? You don’t hear that same voice? Hmmm. You need to ask for a conscience refund.
We have had daily trips to the pool
which has made the girls quite brown and mommy quite pink. I was not blessed with “tanning” skin like some others in my family.
Girls have played, argued, fussed, whined, and carried on all while I politely ignored them and read a book. Well, I tried anyhow.
Hey, I’m entitled to some “me” time too, right? Even if it means ignoring my kids?
Big kids have been busy too. Alex has been enjoying his newly found freedom that a license offers…unless he makes mom mad. Then the license goes.
He has spent time hanging with friends, girlfriend, babysitting, and mowing grass.
But he’s still that typical lazy teen. Check out how he ate ice cream the other night.
As usual, there is no picture of him. Maybe one day…..
Katie had grand plans to escape the madness of work (summer camp with 36 kids aged 4-6) and head to Alaska to see her boyfriend play baseball. But as you all know, nothing ever seems to go as planned. A few days before her scheduled departure, Catlan was diagnosed with a broken thumb on his pitching hand which would require surgery. So, he headed home…..
No Alaska trip…maybe one day.
We are now down to two weeks left of summer. I can’t believe it’s passed so quickly. It must be the old age setting in….days didn’t use to fly by so fast.
C’mon, I don’t hear you. You should be agreeing with me.
We are not old; we just can’t read a calendar. Therefore, days pass much faster than we expect.
That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.
