Flying into Friday

Amid rumors of thunder and a downturn in temperature, the weekend is here and my plate is full. I need to make headway on my current file and get birthdays stuff in line for both guys – unfortunately, I don’t think I can carry M’s present home, so I may need a lift, particularly if the weather turns stormy.

I’m feeling a bit pressed for time, I need to make a weekend plan to help things fall into place. I’ve really been enjoying fun summery things and seeing friends, but the flipside needs to be addressed – everyday things and less enjoyable jobs are floating in place, maintaining but not moving forward as much as I’d like.

As delicious as it is to swim or hike or sit beneath the shady trees with a book or a friend while the kids are splashing or playing, I need to balance summer fun with some tedious necessities, like, say… clearing out the garage.

Maybe a rainy day would help.

Hard during the summer to balance

summer fun with those nagging chores that need to be done. I took a couple of whole days off and several 1/2 days off; so that I could catch up on household chores and still enjoy swimming and playing with my granddaughter.

Juggling callouses

Part of it for me is that we had such blah weather (cold and rainy, I think we hit an all time record here) for most of the spring and first part of summer, it feels like sunshine demands getting outside and enjoying – cooping the kids up while I do inside stuff seems wrong.

Windows of uninterrupted quiet time are so rare during the day and by night I’m pooped… I’m having struggling to stay on track. I keep telling myself I’ll stay up late to catch up then by the time I get there the energy and focus required is lacking.

Maybe I can get M. to take the kids out for a few hours this weekend so I can catch up too. Enjoy your summery granddaughter time!

Opposite problem here

it has been hot and sunny for over a month. We only had 1 brief rain and it wasn’t near enough for the farmers or for my garden. It is hard to stay inside and clean when it is so hot and sunny and our public pool is a short distance away. I am sending you some of our hot dry weather and could you please send some cooler rainy temps here. Thanks much appreciated.

The Great Weather Equalizer

It’s a plan! Will slip any excess rainclouds into a bubble-wrapped pack post haste. You must have sent the hot & dry special delivery, because it seems to have arrived this afternoon. Cheers!
