I wish I could get my act together and post regularly. Summer is a struggle for sure with keeping up with all the family activities and projects around the home that have to be done. And let’s not mention the lawn mowing—let’s not. It’s always Nature versus Teresa.
But it’s not like I'm just sitting around:
Did you know that a teenage boy and a tween boy can eat an entire bucket of popcorn and eat dinner later and not think twice about it? Well I knew it too, but had forgotten. The oldest grandsons and I went to see Man of Steel. I think they liked it. They stayed the night at my house, too.
I found out (at the movies) that I kind of like Skittles—not every day, but once in a while. I had never tried Skittles, but have now "experienced the rainbow". They weren’t chocolate and didn’t look appetizing, so why try them? Who knew they were delicious? Everyone? Oh! I think my daughter was appalled to learn that her mother had never tried Skittles. I’ve got lots of secrets like that.
The granddaughter had seen all the movies she could see, so we bought a Barbie movie that she hadn’t seen, ordered in pizza and played whatever she wanted. Just us girls. She stayed all night, too. She loves coming here and does not keep it a secret.
I cleaned out my two car garage. Wow, it was disgusting.
I re-painted my mailbox. That was fun trying to prep it and paint it with the threat of rainstorm AND the pending arrival of my mailman, hoping it would be dry by the time he delivered my mail.
As normal in humid MO, you can see the vegetation grow before your very eyes. This means that I’m always fighting aggressive weeds and have pulled and treated them for the fifty-millionth time this summer.
Summer vacation is winding down. I will be heading back to work next week for a couple of days and the next week—I will be representing the school at a back to school fair and meeting with our bus drivers for an in-service we’re doing for them. The next week after that, it’s back to school (or work) for good.
And writing—I’m always writing. That’s the important part—right? Well, I think so. I should take a couple of days and do nothing.
Can YOU eat a big bucket of popcorn and eat dinner thereafter? Are you a Skittles fan? What's the temperature in your neck of the woods?
