Time is just flying by lately.

I feel like I get very little accomplished. I guess it's just summer in general - there is no structured schedule for me or the kids, so we just fly by the seat of our pants on what to do and when to do it.

I've also been trying to enjoy this freedom and spending more time relaxing, going to the pool, hanging out with friends, etc. and less time on the computer.

We spend the warm summer evenings outside, in the backyard. Enjoying the fresh air, the hammock, the nice breezes and getting eaten alive by mosquitoes. (Yes, we have repellent around, but secretly, I think they like that citronella smell! Bastids!).

So, I'm sorry if I've missed stopping by your place for a day or two. I promise I will get as caught up as I can this weekend.

We don't have anything planned and I'm going to try to do some laundry, shopping, random chores today (it looks like rain, so no pool) and that way, I'll have the weekend free for computer stuff! :-)

Trust me, even though I've really enjoyed goofing off the last few days, I've also missed hearing from all my blog friends, too.

I'm still spending every evening listening for that Ice Cream Truck. :-)


  1. I don't get why people don't go to the pool when it's raining. I mean the water in the pool is wet and the rain is equally wet so what's the difference?

  2. I'm with you - the summer is flying by! I was just thinking this morning how much I'm going to hate being back on that regimented schedule again. Just a month or so left of freedom.

  3. Here's an oldie but a goodie...nsfw and nsf-kids...but funny!

  4. This summer is flying by! In less than a month The Husband will be back to school and we will be back to never seeing each other. His schedule next semester sucks, but we will have Monday s off together. I just haven't told Mr. Burns that yet!

    Hope that damn Ice Cream Man shows up soon!

  5. YAY for you for living your life. lol. ours has been pretty...unstructured too. it's okay once in a while but my ocd brain can only take so much. rofl.

  6. Somewhere there is a Choco Taco calling your name. Hopefully your unrequited love is soon fulfilled!

    I think it is great to spend more time with friends and family during the summer. I am enjoying it--most of the time!

  7. Girl... I don't blame you for being on the puter less! I have been too. Today is GORGEOUS here.... low 80's and LOW humidity! Makes it nice where you don't sweat to death as soon as you walk outside!

    Hugs - tiff

  8. Sounds like a nice summer so far.

  9. Sounds like you're having a lovely summer. Spontaneous is the way to go. I would love to be sitting outside, but summer in Michigan this year is sucking canal water. Tomorrow's high is supposed to be 68. WTF is up with that??? I'm highly annoyed.

  10. We're so on the same page! I could live in summertime (despite the heat)forever and ever!! I love having the kids around and having nothing to do except figure out what to cook for dinner!!
