Today is the second day of summer vacation. OMG! Two days in and I’m going a little crazy already. I’m sure Philip and I will work out some kind of schedule…at least we’d better. I only have one of my kids home right now (and he has a friend here, keeping him busy) but it feels like everytime I sit down with the computer, somebody needs something: food, towel, band-aids, the dog needs out, the cat needs in… Oh, you’re thinking “what on Earth
are they doing over there!” The boys are outside. They were playing with water squirters and got soaked, so I threw some towels and a can of root beer out onto the patio, told them to stay outside until they were dry, grabbed my computer and headed upstairs. I even made myself a home-made “keep out or else” kind of sign…Not two minutes after my sign was hung was there some yelling at the door. “Band-aid, we need a band-aid.” Really? Already? You guys were just sitting there! I got up to make sure Philip was on top of it and I wasn’t needed. He was. Phew. Back to the computer. About 15 minutes has passed. Gus’ friend was picked up, right on time, by his mom. Gus has knocked on the door (right next to my neat sign) twice already. The first time I told him to read the sign and take any requests downstairs to his dad. He said, “Ok.” Not five minutes later, he was back, knocking at the door again. Ah. It was an urgent announcement that the towel his friend was using will be returned to me later. That’s a relief! It’s a good thing I’m not really recording anything! Is it really only the second day of Summer vacation?
