They say time marches on and they are right. It’s August and I don’t even feel as if my summer ever got started. It hasn’t been bad, just not the summer that I imagined for myself. Summer school packets and the constant nag nag nag of me telling her to do them has killed the spirit.
I am ready for fall.
Nothing remarkable. Church. Roaming our town for something to do. Staying cool.
No pressing appointments so that’s good. The big kid has jury duty and it’s the last week for these independent study classes. I shall celebrate when they end.
Oh, 10th grade registration is this week. I haven’t decided if I will take the day off or not to help with that. She is old enough to do it herself but then there is the financial aspect of it to consider.
I finished The Immortalists. I really enjoyed it. I should have the review up soon.
I am tempted to start Baby Teeth. Everyone says it’s a crazy read with some weird, scary kid. I could get into that right now.
I have time to watch things but I am uninterested in most anything I turn on.
Today? Probably nothing. I am still craving a good burger but don’t feel like making my own. Lobster sounds pretty good but probably won’t make that either. I need a personal chef.
Covered parking lots. Ever since we had that 120 degree day, it’s been averaging about 103 which means that after 25 years at this university I am finally taking advantage of covered parking. I opted for closer, over covered before because well… earthquakes but I’ve decided that my poor car’s black leather interior is just too much to take when it’s 103 out.
What are you up to today?
