Uh oh. We are 2 weeks into summer and cabin fever is setting in. I feel trapped in the house. It is beastly hot outside. Sometimes Nikki and I go to the park early in the morning, but it gets too hot for me by 10:30. Ben gets home from camp at 1:30 and the stretch from 1:30 to bedtime is interminable. It is too hot to be outside. The kids need to burn off energy. There are no good public pools in the area (waah... I miss Meadowmont) where I can easily take the two boys by myself. After being in camp all morning Ben doesn't want to do projects. I feel trapped in the house.
Just after lunch I spent 10 minutes trimming the bush around our mailbox and then beat a hasty retreat inside. We can't even put up a sprinkler or a small pool due to the drought.
Summer in the south sucks. It is the equivalent of winter in Michigan... only the kids are too old to go to the mall. Time to start making a list of afternoon outings... Maybe we'll go see that awful Panda movie later this week... how dreadful can it be?!
