How has summer been, so far? Long? Hot? Boring? Check, on those three, for me!! Whew; the heat has been crazy … even with the a/c and a fan! It has also been difficult to ‘entertain’ my daughter. Her summer plans don’t really start until August; that’s when she’ll be busy in a girls’ program. Yes; we’ve already done many things:
- crafts (made charm bracelets)
- ebike riding
- ice cream
- sun tanning
- … and more!
However, it’s never enough, and there’s only so many ‘Family Channel’ shows that I can watch! Suffice it to say that I look forward to next month. I love our mommy-daughter times, don’t get me wrong, it just gets tiring doing just about anything to make my kid happy and, in return, only getting a “that’s it?”, “that’s all?”, “what’s next?”, etc. Are you kidding me?! How many hundreds of dollars does it take to make kids happy these days?
I’ve also noticed that I just don’t have the same energy that I once did. After a half hour of walking, I need to rest. After a half hour of listening to my daughter talk (non-stop), my head is spinning!
Oh goodness; we’re only 2 weeks into summer!!
