Summer in Swing

It's a hot one here in the Carolina of the North, people. So, we are going to slather ourselves up with some SPF 50 and head to the pool.

I seriously love summer. It is so....laid back. We only have a week left because of the year round schedule. Summer is not my favorite time for year-round school but I do love it during other times of the year.

I've also been sleeping late every day for about 3 weeks now and I dread having to change to start getting up for school in a week.

Oh but wait, could I actually go sit by the pool BY MYSELF, WITH A BOOK, without having to throw dive sticks, blow up things and count live bodies? Could it be a dream?

While we were at the pool and I was watching my kids splash around, I wondered to myself what it would be like in a week when they were in school.

I only thought of one word.


And then another came to mind.


I honestly can't even imagine going to the pool by myself. I bet I would go and leave within an hour. It seems so decadent really. How about you? What do you do that seems decadent while your kids are in school or away from you?

Oh, I so remember the pool days with little ones. It'll be over before you know it - my youngest gets his driver's license in 11 days!
