SO MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO....

89 Days Til School Starts!

Yesterday was the last day of school for the kids.  Yesterday was the last day of peace and quiet for me.  They are home until the middle of August.  Rocky had an end of the year party and volunteered me to bake.  Yay!  Unfortunately everything went wrong.  I didn't have all of the ingredients, I had a 10 am appointment, the party started at 10:30... I had to push the appointment back to the afternoon, rush to the store, hurry up and wait for the dough to rise, rush back to the store to get what I had forgotten, hurry back to hurry up and wait some more.

After the kids got home I had to rush off for my appointment.  When that was over I thought I could relax at home but the kids wanted to get out.  I wanted to sit down.  Rocky wanted to jump on the trampoline.  I repeat... I wanted to sit down... in the cool den! That was when Rocky, with her psychic abilities, announced that it was going to be a boring summer because there was nothing to do.  It wasn't even day one, school had just gotten out a couple of hours ago, and she had already come to that conclusion.  Rather than contradict her I just smiled and nodded.

Yes, its going to be a boring summer!

So, here it is, day one.  I got to sleep in, right?  WRONG!  Dickidoo decided it would be fun to wake me up at o'dark hundred when he got up... sick man!  I feigned sleep for a while but finally gave up at 7.  I walked down the hall and was greeted by yesterday's baking mess still scattered around the kitchen and diningroom along with all of the other dirty dishes.  Backpacks overflowing with the remnants of my over-the-budget school supply shopping spree lay scattered from the doorway to the livingroom. 

Yeah, its going to be a GREAT summer!

Well - we still have one more week.  Plus, I get to continue going to work :-).  My sister-in-law gets to figure out how to entertain my two along with her four.  God Bless Her!

That's what I like about you always looking on the bright side of things. I'm sure you'll come up with something so they won't be bored. I always made very long chore list every time they said they were bored. They stopped telling me when they were bored so I wouldn't make them a list.
hugs, R.C.

Thank God I have four more days that they get to go this week, lol.  I had a friend ask me "are you really going to make them go next week, no one is going" my answer to that, uh hell yeah are you insane??? I might send em' Friday and tell the school I got confused, ha.  It is definitely going to be a long summer this direction and I am sure hotter than hell as usual, lol.
