Fast And Furious
Let's see...it's been a while. Honestly this holiday-in-the-middle-of-the-week thing confused the hell out of me. It was hard to get my bearings. Though now that it's Monday morning and I have a list of approximately 7,516 things to do, my bearings are rushing at me like a freight train full of...full of...7,516 of things to do. And I'm a little exhausted. Why? Allow me to explain.
Wednesday. The Fourth of July. General chilling out; pool visits; fireworks buying; family Fourth celebration and cookout. 100 degree heat.
Thursday. Swim team practice; general merrymaking; pool visit; aborted water park attempt. 100 degree heat.
Friday. Swim team practice; five hour water park visit; exhaustion and minor dehydration; sleep. 100 degree heat.
Saturday. Swim meet; random errands; movie night. 100 degree heat.
Sunday. Random errands; Wii; competitive Lego building; playing with the neighbors; birthday cake ordering (Mia). 100 degree heat.
So, yeah, the past several days have been busy. And hot. They've been fantastic, though. From the Fourth through yesterday around 2:30, I was able to completely disconnect from work. It was a nice feeling, not worrying about whatever was going on and the fires I'd have to put out today. It was fun spending time with the kids. Especially the five hours on Friday floating down the water park's lazy river, watching my children discover the awesomeness that is The Incredibles, watching Mia not only not disqualify but win breaststroke and butterfly races, and seeing Owen bellyflop in the water for his first-ever swim team dive.
What did you do with your holidays and weekends?Posted by Chris at July 9, 2012 7:37 AM
