School starts in less than four weeks.
This was the summer we paid big money for six weeks of summer camp for our tiny person so I could work on my novels (and because it's fun for him). That worked for exactly one week. Two weeks of camp are left, so I suppose I shouldn't completely give up on accomplishing things.
On non-camp weeks, we were going to have fun - play mini-golf, go to the pool, go fishing, etc. - but the weather has been unsafe for people with asthma. Earlier this week it smelled like mold outside. Eeek. So we huddle inside in the air conditioning and watch too much Sponge Bob or play video games and make the most of it.
The month of August is packed on my calendar - check-ups and dentist appointments for the kids, football practice for one, driving class for another, school meetings and schedule pickups (not actually on the calendar yet because the school is really disorganized and bad at simple communication).
And my husband is leaving for two trips. He'll be home for six days in the next four weeks, only one of them a weekend day that he doesn't otherwise have to work. Those six days are going to suck for him - there's a ton of stuff I need for him to do.
My husband is definitely a type-B personality and contributes to the chaos of my house, but he is very kind about cutting the grass and going to the grocery store and doing the dishes or helping with the laundry late at night if any of my several ailments flair up.
My tiny person gets very clingy and a tiny bit difficult when his dad is gone.
Until late August, I will quite likely be mostly absent here except for occasional self-pity over not being able to write.
In an hour, my middle child is getting four teeth pulled. The dentist said it may take 48 hours until he's back to normal. I'd rather be taking care of him than in his position for sure.
How's your summer going?
