Still here. . .

I know you've been worried.
Wondering if maybe that sinus infection got me.
Or maybe the kids declared mutiny and took over the computer.

Wait. I think they did. But that's beside the point!~

Truth is, SUMMER is here. And not THIS Sumer, (whom I also love), but the one that happens when school lets out for the year.

That delightful time of year when I resort to the following to do list:

1. Eat
2. Make sure the other 9 people in the house eat
3. Exercise (to offset #1 - particularly all of the ice cream)
4. Shower
5. Do laundry
6. Take the kids swimming as often as possible (depending on invitations received)
7. Wash towels and suits from swimming
8. Go to the library
9. Sleep

That's pretty much it! Blogging isn't on the list. Although I have picked up a book or two so far (finishing up When Joy Came to Stay, by Karen Kingsbury). The phone rings until the answering machine gets it. And I don't feel badly about that. Sometimes.

We've been eating food cooked on the grill. And leftovers that were originally cooked on the grill. And sandwiches.

We've taken two walks almost every day - one in the morning, one after dinner. We've watched seasons 3 and 4 of Monk for the second time. Become experts at air popped popcorn in the evening.

The house is dusty. And full of laughter.

Delightful.

And I haven't taken a single picture since the last day of school.

I miss you. Truly, I do.

I'm looking forward to putting the final touches on my money savings tips post.
And the next installment of "How the Coach Won My Heart."

But right now, the hot dogs are ready to go on the grill, a watermelon needs to be cut up and I need to pick up Son #1 at a lawn mowing job.

Life calls!

Hopefully, very soon, I'll be back. . .
But don't bother calling.
I won't answer it.

You know you have a standing invite at our pool for the entire summer, right? I realize it may be a little out of your way, but just wanted you to know. :)
