Gee, and just like that, it's summer. It was hot this weekend. The kind of hot that's best tolerated if you're lounging around in a swimsuit with a cold drink and a good book in hand. Unfortunately, this kind of scenario isn't in my foreseeable future unless you count a kiddie wading pool in the yard with me immersed to my hips and being gleefully drenched by two hyperactive pre-schoolers. Which is a lot of fun, especially if I direct the drenching to people who make the mistake of walking too near.
I can pretty much predict what summer's going to be like. If we're not out of town, it'll be the kiddie wading pool on weekends or the mall to escape the scorching heat. I gotta start scouting for summer activities to keep the kids occupied during the week. I'm thinking tennis and theater for Joshua and swimming and/or ballet for Faith. Maybe they'll actually find something they'll want to stick with. Though I'm really hoping Josh will take a liking for tennis because his mommy's got visions of being in Paris for the French Open. Heh heh!
Speaking of distractions, the hubby and I saw Music and Lyrics yesterday. It's nothing spectacular but very entertaining. The opening 80's music video with Hugh Grant is hilarious! Not too bad if you've nothing better to do on a hot afternoon or trying to fill in the time before the really good movies come out. For instance, I can't wait for Transformers (yeah, I watched it and can even sing the theme song which impressed the heck out of Joshua!). I kind of had a crush on Optimus Prime. Hooookay, let's not get started...
I've got thirteen new books. Thirteen! Thirteen lovely, spanking new books that I don't have time to read. Bummer!
