Yesterday I planned our vacation week stay-at-home-because-my-back-hurts activities around the weather. And around the delivery of our new ultra firm mattress that I hope and pray will be the magic that I need to feel better this week.
This morning was supposed to be super hot and muggy followed by afternoon thunderstorms. Instead, we have coolish weather and a steady rain. How can the weather people be that wrong?
Instead of a morning bike ride or trip to an amusement park, we are finishing up work around the house. My daughter is painting her room, my middle son is watching his three thousandth hour of tv this summer (I know, it's not good but the kid has been feeling bad), and my toddler and husband are running errands. I have been cleaning and folding laundry.
I think it's a good day for movies and/or bowling after lunch. We will go to the theatre with the tiny screens but comfortable seats. I will watch and cheer on my family while they bowl. I will fill my boys' pockets with quarters for whatever video games they want to play. That can't be anything but fun.
