these are the days of our lives- one of my favorite summer memories from growing up was one summer when my mom was doing some graduate work and we had a sitter several days a week- hello Days of Our Lives. I was seven but the drama, man the drama.

Before summer started, I had lofty goals: teach A latin, organize my entire house in a way that would make Martha say, “ata girl!”, enrich and inspire my children while being relaxed,unstructured, and unstressed.

Um yeah, well, we have drama, man the drama. One of my children has future plans to be a ninja. The other plans on being a pediatrician or an artist. After a delightful conversation in the car about future college and career possibilities, one child asked if not pursuing higher education, they could blow the money in the college fund on pets, lots of pets. Um, no. No, no, and bless your heart, no.

I adore being with my kids in the summer but the drama, man the drama. One child cried when they perceived there was too much ice in their drink. Yikes, the intensity of 10 plus hours a day of togetherness for eight weeks….these are the days of our lives.

with multiple trips to the hardware store, I’ve been pricing counter tops-
5K for what I really what and that just isn’t going to happen anytime soon

let me remind you of the hidious baby poop tan/orange countertops we had

now they are more of a slate grey (in this photo they look blue)
still not great but for $25, a days work, and toxic fumes:
well, I hate them less and that is progress!
