School’s been out for a week or two and we are in full summer mode, and it means different things to each member of out house.
First I should say that to my husband it means next to nothing right now…LOL, he actually feels left out as we all sleep in each morning. He’s a bit jealous to say the least. He’s also very busy at work with auditors and examiners, he’s got vacation in July…………so his time is coming.
For my girls summer IS about sleeping in and staying up late. It’s about running around with friends and going to the beach or someone’s pool. It’s about talking and texting on the phone more than any teen human should……but it’s summer, so I try to just let it go.
For Nick it’s about how many friends he can see, what they can go do,and how many summer movies he can watch. It’s been a bit of a slow start for him, so he’s telling me how bored he is……ugh.
I am currently a SAHM, an oxymoron because a mom rarely just stays at home, and her work is never done. I love my family, and I love caring for them. Summer is fun in many ways as I too am not waking at 6am to the rush rush of school prep and me driving. It’s nearly 10am and I’m still in my pajamas. I do miss the quiet time I often get when everyone is out at work and school. I’m finding it hard to balance blogging and online time without feeling I’m ignoring my kids. My other passion is reading and I have been told this week that I’m either reading or typing…………clearly I’m not entertaining enough…LOL.
We do have some things coming up, Caitie is off to a Youth Group camp for a week in late June, Adrienne has a college softball camp in July, and we are all going to TX in July to see my family in Dallas.
So things are moving along, we aren’t big summer planners for the day to day stuff. I wish my days were more free at times, because three days a week I’m driving to 35 miles to softball practice, and we are on our 4th weekend in a row of a softball tournament…………thankfully we get next weekend off. I’m actually missing having dinner together the most………..and planning for dinner has become a real challenge, but I’m managing.
How is your summer spent?
