I haven't posted in the last few days because I have been lazy.  Yep, I am lazy. Some days more than others.

We have been busy.....doing summer.  Eating, swimming, going to church, watching Tangled over and over (and over and over).  We got out over the weekend to watch Poppers Penguins and went to clearance sales. Yea, we aren't very exciting.

I truly need to answer some emails and get to the post office and bank.  I did make the kids a dentist appointment for tomorrow so I did do something on my list. 

In a few weeks we are heading off on a cruise.  We have been trying to decide what shore excursions to do.  Since we have never done a cruise before this is all new to us.  We did sign up to go snorkeling.  We don't care to afford many of the expensive excursions, they can sure add up quickly for a group our size.  We will be going to Mexico, Belize and a few other places.....anyone gone and have some suggestions for what to see?  or what to pack?

I have also been trying to decide how to rearrange the house.  It is quite possible that my mom may stay with us for a little while so I need to do some shuffling.  I also need to do some ramps. I am not sure how to do that in the house on the tile (2 steps).

 I am also contemplating doing a family closet.  Anyone have one?  I am thinking of building a spot for our recycling stuff too........

I guess I have been doing more thinking then doing lately.  Thinking is hard work.

In the morning we are going to the zoo (if it doesn't rain).  Good distraction for thinking.

Now I am off to listen to the fireworks.  Yep, too lazy to go anywhere.  We grilled hamburgers, ate apple pie and watermelon and then went swimming.  That was the extent of our 4th.  It is great to have the freedom to celebrate this day in whatever way we chose.

Happy 4th of July to everyone.

  1. Our lives are so similiar! Did nothing for the 4th though because my twins violated the rules by running up to another adult and taking balloons from him while with Adam. They aren't supposed to even approach other adults without me. And there were a few other things that showed me I wasn't going to take them to a crowded pool as planned. We did get out the sprinklers.

    I miss Tangled. Jasmine watches it six times a week at least but I haven't let anyone watch it since she left. I think of it as her movie. Well, actually it was a gift to her for her surgery.

    Went to Mr. Poppers Penguins Sat morning for our 23rd anniv because that's when Ty could watch the kids.

    Going on a cruise next March. Hope you have a lot of fun on yours. My 5th over many years but I usually stick with shopping or snorkeling or the falls in Jamaica--the cheap stuff.
