We're back from our second summer vacation and getting back in the swing of things. For the rest of the summer we'll just lounge around, go swimming and enjoy a very relaxed schedule. This may be the calm before the storm. With both boys in school this year, I'm sure I'll be like the hamster running on the exercise wheel.
The hubby is scheduled to finish his work assignment next month. Maybe we'll get a quick break from the commute. I emphasize quick, because these days any longer than a blink can easily earn you a pink slip.
The boys are up to their usual "tomfoolery", which means there's a lot of wrestling and boxing. They're constantly singing, dancing and cracking jokes. Imagine my prayers when I noticed a nude and anatomically correct statue behind us at a restaurant. Fortunately they never noticed the penis that was precisely at our eye level, because we would not have made it through dinner. They become a pack of wild hyenas at the mere mention of body parts or bodily functions. Despite being physically exhausted I know they're having the time of their lives. They'll never be this age again. I'm constantly learning the meaning of "Don't Sweat the Small Stuff".
