What I did this summer - or I'm so glad I don't have to write a back to school essay!

Sorry I haven’t posted more. There just hasn’t been a lot of motivation here, or much to talk about. I mean what can you really write about when you lay around and watch Gilmore Girls all day? I have gotten NOTHING done this summer that I intended to do. I have pretty much been lazy – and will probably regret it come the end of August
I did go up to the Renaissance Faire with a bunch of friends from our church. We had a great time, but it was really hot that day. I have seen a couple movies with Kelsey and Dana – The Devil Wears Prada and Click, but they were just ok, and since I am not a super hero fan, the movies were pretty much a washout this summer. I helped a friend move. What else, oh, I took Carissa to get her senior pictures taken. You know I am reaching when that is included on my list of fun things I did this summer….. We also celebrated her birthday with a party…. Wait, that was work. (cuz we had to clean the house.) Oh, and we also spent a good two hours in the sun and humidity passing out bags door to door for a food drive that our church is helping with in Kendall County. After two hours I snuck off to Wendy’s for a Frosty.
Probably the best thing I did was I went to D’s play, It was her first production ever and she played Lady Quigley in the Don Nigro version of Robin Hood. It was a hoot – great fun. I went twice. And laughed and laughed – at the play, not at her.
Yep, so that pretty much sums up the fun. I didn’t bore you with trips to the airport, or dentist or doctor. Sorry. They just don’t qualify as fun….
What’s left? Well, since our 24th anniversary passed with little fanfare (read my husband forgot – again) I guess all that’s left that has the potential for celebation are my birthday, and Kim's. Again – not sure my birthday would qualify as fun. In fact I found a couple cartoons that pretty well sum it up.

So…….when people ask me what I did this summer, if I say nothing that pretty well will be the truth. Unless I really get it together and paint our bedroom like I intended, or we tile the laundry room, and install cabinets and counters – which was also on the list. Or trim the trees and rescue the back garden from horrendous overgrowth. Alas, I’m pretty much resigned to having wasted the whole summer in Stars Hollow……

A good time was had by all..... :)

Lovely weather - hot even. Great music. Fun kids. Yummy food. Apples to Apples, Cranium and Trivial Pursuit. Eight hours. Combine and what do you get? Carissa's 17th birthday party which took place on our back deck complete with Tiki torches and party lights.

Impossible - since I'm only 29........

Your Emoticon is Shocked

Well, tomorrow my youngest child will officially be able to go to R rated movies without me. I have lost control of another aspect of my life. Geesh - do I feel old.......

What did you do for the 4th? Us? Thanks for asking…..Kim is in California, Chris had to work, Kelsey went to a party, and Carissa went out to eat with friends and then they went to someone's house to watch movies…..Me? I went out to lunch with a friend, and then we went to a movie. Then I went to P and B’s house for hamburgers and fireworks. Huh – one family - 5 directions. Did we miss the point? Guess togetherness was not our strong suit this year. LOL. But we all had fun, and Kelsey did catch up with me at P and B's so at least I did see one of my kids! :) Kind of a strange fourth, but it worked for us. What did you guys do?
