That’s Not How I Planned It!!!

OK, so this was not quite the way I planned my grand pool opening day. The water is green not turqoise as planned and the wranglers are both sick. Not to mention the sun never made an appearance at all today!  You think I would have learned by now that things don’t always go as planned. Just ask my kids, they’ll tell you how ass…

Pool Opening Day Is Upon Us….

 You big, beautiful cement pond!  OK, this is more like it! This is what we will be viewing by tomorrow afternoon, though the temperatures will not be cooperating.

Is anyone else out there fearful of summer…

Please, Go Back To School!!

Repeat, repeat, repeat. We are just finishing up the second, yes you heard it correctly, second Spring Break for my kids today. They were only off 10 days in March, and four days over the Easter weekend, but, hey, who’s counting? And who’s keeping track of how many days it has rained?
