Every year, this happens. It's May, the school year is wrapping up, there are 8 gazillion projects, tests, papers, etc due and I just can't wait for summer. Ahhh, lazy days of hanging out, playing games, spending time exploring our new city, swimming in the pool, playing with friends, life is good.
Then, it's late July. Chase is playing WAY too many video games, watching WAY too much TV, drinking soda every day for lunch (caffeine free root beer, but still), and generally driving me nuts.
The problem would be much alleviated if I could only win the lottery...then we'd spend the summer hanging out with friends and family all over the country, and jetting to the Caribbean for the weekend. Now, THAT would be a fun summer. But, alas, we don't actually PLAY the lottery, so our chances of winning it are poorer than most!
We're in the home stretch - a little less than a month left in the summer. Too much time to just say, whatever, ok, play your gameboy all day, I don't care! So, I'm trying to plan our day with some fun things to do and still keep within a very strict budget. It's hard!! But, this happens every year, and I knew it would happen this year too.
I'm thinking we'll head to the nuclear warhead museum today - we'll save on our light bill if we glow, right? :)
