Just Hanging Out

Hello Blog!

There isn't much to say today. There are officially 2 weeks left of summer today. The kids are starting to get a little bored, so I am planning some outings this week. We've been doing lots of hanging out at home just relaxing, watching the Olympics, reading, and putzing around. I can't believe how fast the summer went. I feel like next summer might look a lot different with a full on teenager having more things to do than be with us, so am enjoying just being together and relaxing. Buying new underwear, going for ice cream and slurpees, all the essentials. But also friends are away and it feels a little lonely. Fall brings good routine and busyness. So it's all bittersweet. Remember when you were like 19 or 20 and summer was just full, felt so long, rich with friends and late nights and work of course, summer romance- oh wait that never really happened to me. OK maybe it did but I'm not telling. I need some more purposeful busyness this fall, so I am praying, looking for something to invest in.

Funny photos from summer:

Ditto and Misha (Marcia's dog)- she's looking suspiciously at him out of the corner of her eye, not quite trusting the young and crazy boy.

Smiling Misha

Ditto moving in for the kiss- she's old enough to be your mother!

That's better
