SummerTIME, summerTIME, sum, sum, summerTIME...

Summer is here! It's time for days of leisurely breakfast, boys in pjs until 9 am (at least). Lots of X-box and puzzles and reading and X-box and coloring and videos and swimming and X-box. Josh has become addicted, finally joining my other 2 boys, in the joy of video gaming. They are currently sitting on the couch, all 3 of them, discussing the best way to attack the latest problem in Star Wars Lego. One is in his underwear, one is wearing shorts and one is dressed in blue jeans and a very wrinkled T-shirt. I won't tell which one is doing which.

So I find myself with TIME on my hands... Something I'm really not used to... TIME to do anything I want. First time in over 8 years I have time without someone hollering at me, needing something. The little boys have reached the ages where they can take themselves to the bathroom, play with each other without needed intervention for hours at a time. And they are also old enough to be fun for the husband to play with. And they share a common hobby. So I have the next few weeks to figure out what to do with my time.

I've got lots of options. I could start working out. I have the gym membership, after all. I could find a hobby. I could spend more time in prayer and Bible study. I could catch up with friends who have forgotten all about me since I seldom return their calls. I could read another book. I could clean the house. I could create an elaborate management system to get the household moving in the right direction. I could terrorize the MIL with vacuuming the upstairs. Oh, the options... What's a girl to do?? Help!!

I don't know what to do. Guess I'll go make lunch for now. We'll see what happens later.

To Be Continued.....

Lego Star Wars.....

my favorite babysitter! :)

I kid, I kid...but the kids really do love that game (and I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy playing it too!)
