All gone

Yes, the summer is all gone. I am fully aware that it is August 22 and there is still 2 weeks of summer left, but when school supplies and have been out for over a month and Halloween stuff is out in full swing say adios to summer. There is also Christmas stuff on some web sites.

I do find it kind of funny that these stores are trying to get kids to commit to a Halloween costume in August. They change their minds every other day. For instance Bud says I wanna be Harry Potter on Monday then says he wants to be a Vampire on Wednesday. I will do what I always do. Go to the store see what is left after work on Halloween Day before I go home and call home to say what is there. He makes his choice and that is it. Now if only I can just work on that teachers school supply list.

Enjoy life

Heat & Humidity

Love this time of the year when every 15 minutes Bud says Mommy we need a pool. I need my whole body to get wet. I did let him know that we have a sprinkler and that the sprinkler worked just fine for me when I was his age. He very politely said " mommy do not get mad, but pools were invented since then).

I just looked at him and said being older than dirt does not make me ancient. We had pools back then, but in NY having something that you pay for all year long and use less than 2 months out of the year is a waste of money.

Yeah.... that went no where fast!

Enjoy life.

All better now

I would normally keep up to date on FB, but that is too cheery a place to post this. I needed just to get that out last night and now I am all better.
