What's a girl to say?  Honestly, life right now is the perfect kind of boring.   We are skating along through our summer. 

No drama whatsoever. 

Which really means not much to say. 

Um, yesterday we went to the pool.  Bee is still jumping in.  Um.  She's talking a lot.  She'll repeat almost anything anyone says.  It's fun that she can communicate. 

My house is pretty clean because work is slowing down thanks to the ever-amazing and efficient Distybug.   Laundry is caught up too. 

We have nothing on the calendar until Monday when we have to take Jojo to his team meeting and shell out the big bucks.  (yawn.)  He's currently running 2.5 miles 4 times a week.  Next week he'll bump it up to 3.0.  Makes me tired just thinking about it. 

It was 99 degrees outside yesterday.  (yawn.)

I've gained like 7 lbs.  I think I'll make some bread today.  With LOTS of flax seed in it. 

Sister is at a friend's house. 

The Poo and JD are playing with the baby.  We painted her fingernails and toenails this morning.  Sugie's too. 

Sugie is all in to Go Fish right now.  We all have to play it with her.  Good times. 

My kids found out their teachers the other night.  Somewhat anti-climatic because they are all good. 

See?  Boring.  Just the boring I love.  I'm not running all over town in a hot car spending gas that costs as much as a gallon of milk.  I'm not drowing in work and worry over my job.  (PRAISE THE LORD!)  I'm not under a pile of laundry.  My kids are gratefully healthy and generally happy.  Life is good, and we are extremely thankful for this respite. 

I love skating.  🙂

Sounds Wonderful! Can you send a little of that over here? 🙂 All except the 99 degrees because the air conditioner took a nose dive 😦 I will keep our 80 degree temps thank you very much 🙂

I love skating too. Doesn’t make for good blogging, but it does make for a happy momma!

Y’all come to the pool tomorrow, so we can talk about flax seed…I am not in the know!

Comment by Andrea

I want to know about the flax seed too, but I can’t come to the pool. It’s a bit to far to drive, lol. Can you share with me too?!!!!

You’re summer sounds perfect!!! Glad to hear the work is slowing down and you still have time to enjoy the kids for awhile.

Glad you are skating! I am busy today turning 40!! Oh the Horror! When you teach these people about Flax seed–tell them to take it slowly–the stomach would appreciate it! I always put a Tbs. in my yogurt in the mornings. You can get it cheap at Walmart already milled in a box—on the baking aisle near the baking soda, sugar etc.

What bliss! I am so happy for y’all and need a bit of skating here, too. ENJOY!

If I were Jojo, though, I’d be wishing for a pair of skates! I hope he’s running early in the day and drinking lots of water… 🙂
