Two weeks of summer vacation so far

We’ve swam most days. The pool has not turned green yet but it’s early days. Heat and rain combined cannot be defeated by chemicals & filters as I learned last year but I am trying to keep ahead of it.

It’s been in the 90s most of the time, hitting 101 yesterday! And it’s only June.

I’d like to take them to the park or something but it’s just too damn hot.

Vacation bible school was this week and the little heathens have enjoyed it for the most part, but I think they are done having to be somewhere every morning.

We’ve been to both libraries. They read almost daily, but we’ve been slacking off on the workbooks.

DH has been gone from 6:30a to 10p weekdays for going on 3 weeks now. I have no idea when that will end. It should have been this week but it turns out large corporations are just as disorganized and screwed up as tiny companies.

Which I already knew but seems to surprise some people.

I’ve baked cookies twice and been to the gym 5 times.

I consider that breaking even.

Sleep comes and goes. I had a few nights of 7 hours of sleep. I’d hopes that meant I had gotten a handle on the insomnia. But then I was awake most of the last 3 nights. The boys have been waking too & that isn’t helping.

The cats have fleas, despite pricy flea treatments to them & the yard. So the house has fleas & has been fogged twice & I am now spraying it  regularly to hopefully get the last crop of eggs as they hatch.

How’s your summer been so far?

Summer? My kid's still in school and I'm working like crazy. Summer is a myth.

We're only on our third day of summer vacation and already, the phrases "I'm bored, there's nothing to do, how many more days until school starts" have come up several times but I find if I say them quietly, the girls have no clue I've said anything at all.

Well, the kids actually started their summer reading yesterday. So that's a bit of a triumph. The girl is loving Jr. Guards (beach camp) and the boy loves his baseball. I'm working, which is a bit of a bummer but it will pay dividends when I'm around more in the fall. The best thing about summer is not having to get up everyday at 6:30 am!

I hear ya on the long hours - gets hard...on everybody. Sounds like a busy & fun summer so far. We skipped Summer Academy this year because no one is really a morning person and wasn't quite ready for 6 to change classes at a strange school - a high school - alone yet!

I don't feel like it began yet! The kids are still at school (and I'm at work) till the third week of July....
