Because it's summer...

I love the summer.

IT'S NEVERENDING FUN.  (Said with, I am serious...well kind of both)

I don't work full time in the summer, therefore we can spend our time doing things like...
  • having constant playdates
  • spending money I don't have
  • lathering kids up with sunscreen just to have them play outside or swim in less time then it took to lather them up with the damn sunscreen in the first place
  • consuming a steady flow of snacks throughout the day
  • complaining that there is "nothing" to eat after snack #3 of the morning, which has occurred by 8:36 am
  • skipping bath, because the pool counts (OH YES it does, don't tell me otherwise)
  • not making dinner because it's too hot (who can cook when it's above 90 degrees? ugh!)
  • drinking wine or beer at noon (not the kids, but me...)
  • skipping naps
  • delaying bedtime until whenever the Disney movie of the moment is over, which this week has been Lemonade Mouth
  • stressing about what bedtime madness will be like in about a month when school starts again
  • listening to the kids complain about mosquito bites, even after 2 applications of bug spray and several warning to come in because "The mosquitoes are terrible out there" (I say this EVERY NIGHT)
  • swimming, swimming, and more swimming
  • appreciating a rainy day because, quite frankly, I couldn't deal with the pool again that day
  • being lazy relaxing
I love summer.  But, is it time for school to start again?  Just curious.

  1. Oooh, I get so sick of applying sunscreen! I feel grateful for a rainy day too, so I don't have to feel guilty about not getting the kids outside.

  2. I'm right there with ya girl. That is why the first day of school is my favorite day of the year and I have a HUGE party for myself, by myself. The champagne is flowin', I dance in my birthday suit, and there may even be some swingin' from the chandeliers.

  3. I hear you - but I will definitely complain much more when we are back to school...
    I just say "Is it time for college yet?"

  4. Katie, I think we have 5 1/2 more weeks here before school starts. I'll be out of sunscreen (and patience) in 3 weeks. It doesn't bode well for the kids. My husband asked me the other day if I knew where all of his clean underwear was. I said, "It's still dirty. It's summer. I'm trying to know, like the kids." He nodded and said, "I guess that's why we've had scrambled eggs for dinner every night this week. So, I'm going commando today." Yes, dear. To the eggs and going commando.

  5. LOVE the blog! The pool ABSOLUTELY counts. And as much as I love spending the time with my own spawn, it's only 25 days til school starts here!!!

Even though I am horrible at responding to comments, I read every one (even the spam comments trying to sell me cheap Christian Louboutins). Leave a nice comment and I will buy you a drink...someday.
