For the last couple of weeks, however, we've had nothing planned. It's been really boring! My daughter hasn't done much socializing over the last few weeks. And as each week has passed by, there have been less and less friends to set up play dates with since many of her friends have started school already!
Also, right at the time my daughter was finishing up camp, my husband has been home on an extended "vacation." So, not only have I been trying to entertain my daughter, but my husband has been around too. I think that's been harder. He sees how much time I spend on the computer and how little time I spend cleaning the house. And he's not shy about commenting about it.
Also, he keeps insisting on doing these projects around the house, like remodeling the house. Oh sure, we were way overdue with turning our daughter's bedroom decor from the Winnie the Pooh nursery look into the really gorgeous, big-girl's room, but still! So, not only have I been expected to spend less time on the computer, I also have to keep cleaning up the dry-wall dust that's been spewed all over the house. And my husband isn't shy to voice some opinions about how I clean. "You really do it like that?" he keeps asking.
As luck would have it, his extended "vacation" is ending this weekend, then my daughter starts school the following week (did I mention that I can't believe how late school starts here?). Then I can go back to obsessing over my blog, I mean scrubbing the house down my way!
It'll be great to have the me-time again. I know my daughter will be thrilled to be back at school, and my husband can't wait to go back to work! Well, I'm not sure about that last part, but I'm sure I've been driving him nuts as well!
Happy end of summer! Although, I will still miss it! (just don't tell my hubby!).
