So how, exactly, has it been a week already since I have posted?!?!
**Most of last week was spent at my parent's house hanging out with my Dad while my Mom was in Omaha visiting my Grandma. We didn't really get out and do much other than going to the movies and running some errands. Yet somehow the days were busy and passed quickly.
**Thursday was my first day back at my house and I had two kids over for tutoring in the morning then spent the rest of the time cleaning, shopping and going to the gym.
**Friday found me back at school. What? It's summer! Yes, it is, which means that it was time to get my classroom painted. Ugh! What a job that was! However, I expected it would take me two days to complete it, but I managed to get it all done on Friday. This means I really am on vacation now. It also meant that I was incredibly sore from the acrobatics required to paint in a room with really high ceilings and big, tall cabinets to reach over. Some of the low lights of the day included unearthing a cricket graveyard and a live spider's nest. Ick. That's what I get for moving file cabinets and bookcases. The upside of things is that the room looks great and I won't have to do it at the end of July when it is 10 degrees hotter and way more humid.
**Saturday was a day to hang out with my mom while Brian worked. We went shopping and had lunch so all in all it was a good day.
**Yesterday we slept in until the unconscionable hour of 10:00. And it was wonderful! At noon I went for a massage, which was really nice since I was still sore from painting on Friday. When I got home I had a quick lunch before hopping in the pool with Brian for a swim. After that my parents came over. We visited, ordered in pizza for dinner, and played Scene It. All in all it was a pretty good day.
**It has been hot, hot, hot here, but that's OK because it just means that our pool has been extra heavenly. We have been spending lots of time playing and relaxing in the pool. Like every day. Like I plan my showers around when I know I want to be swimming. It has been absolutely wonderful to float around on our noodles and soak up some sun. We won't even be using our pool covers anymore this season because the water temperature has reached 90 degrees. One of the best things is that after 3 years we have pretty much acclimated to the heat. It was 116 degrees yesterday and it didn't even bother us, it was just a nice summer day.
**Today has me doing some chores around the house after this mornings tutoring session. Actually, lots of chores, like paying bills and doing laundry. Ick. My two least favorite things to do. Then I'll go to the gym and reward myself after with a nice swim in the backyard.
So what are you doing to enjoy the summer weather?
