Is it possible to blog on a regular basis?
Is it possible to blog in the summertime?
Is it possible to do anything other than run from place to place, shuttling between movies, parks, pools, sleep overs, roller skating, ice skating, swim practice, swim meets, parties, play dates, the beach, etc.,,,?
In my mind, I thought this summer would be different. My kids are older now, a little more independent and able to entertain themselves. I pictured them having long, lazy days of relaxing, kicking back, swimming and playing outside, eating snow cones, doing craft projects, catching up on reading, watching videos - all while I joined them periodically while still managing to keep up a steady production of work.
Instead it's been a steady stream of running, running, running.
No beads have been made in days. No floors have been vacuumed, no socks have been sorted, no listings have been created. I haven't even downloaded the pictures from the last day of school from my camera yet.
And, to add to the mix, it's been incredibly hot. The heat index has been hovering between 105 and 112, with insane humidity. Nobody has any interest in going outside unless it's straight into the pool. If my cat hears the door open, he runs for his life in fear that someone will make him go outside. My studio is well over 100 degrees, even with my little A/C unit chugging away. (I think it might have curled up and died from sheer exhaustion.) I don't even want to think about my power bill.
Still, I'm hopeful. I really want to get some work done, some pictures posted and something interesting accomplished this week.
