One of the things I do to help myself feel awake, is opening all the curtains and blinds on the main floor. Well, almost all. We're having a bit of a heat wave right now, so I left the fairy photo booth backdrop up to help block the afternoon sun in the western windows.
It truly is a pity we don't have any east-facing windows. The one time of day that I like the summer sun streaming in would be early in the morning.
Speaking of summer, I've pretty much been failing at it so far. First, there was birthday party prep. Granted, the party itself was pretty cool. Then there was "my mother in law is coming to visit" prep. Lucky for me, I'm pretty sure she doesn't judge me for my housekeeping. I have a (couple of) great mothers in law! Then there was work. I'm done that now, as of last night. But basically, the only fun thing I've done with the kids was go to the beach with them yesterday...and that was at my mother in law's suggestion (Yes, I did don a swimsuit and go in the water...up to my waist).
It's a good thing the kids have such a fun Daddy, who buys them skateboards and takes them out to practice while I hibernate with the laptop and the air conditioner. This heat is making me grouchy. [Wow, I got a little off topic here! I won't be winning any "most organised blogger" awards, that's for sure]
So how's your summer going?
