We are at the weekend folks and since next week is a break for us it feels pretty good right now.
I used to say summer was my favorite time of year. And, I still harbor fond feelings for it, but I think it’s more the beginning and end of summer that I hold dear. These 104 degree middle of summer days watching my grass turn brown and my sunflowers wilt away just makes me sad. I still prefer it to winter, just so you know.
It never did cool down enough last night for me to enjoy my run. And I’ve bumped up to running 3 minutes at a time. 3 MINUTES! Next week is five minutes and I can’t even imagine it. I think I need another week of 3 minutes. I like to break myself in slow to new things.
I realized last night that I spend way too much time on google looking for the best way to house a guinea pig. Something that gives her enough space, but doesn’t take up an entire room in my house. There’s not an inch to spare around here. I guess I’m hoping an article will pop up that reminds me of that huge unused room we have at the end of the hall. A perfect spot for her cage and even some storage for homeschool books. Oh, and have you been down that hall? There’s an extra bedroom and bathroom. Perfect space to move a couple of kids into.
Google can’t solve everything.
Sometimes I dream my house has rooms I have never used. I walk through opening doors to these new rooms and am surprised, delighted and amazed that I never thought of using them before.
Then I wake up.
My house is a nice size, and I know a lot of people who have raised more kids than I have in a 3 bedroom 2 bath home. But we are feeling the crunch and with 2 bathrooms there’s a lot of holding it around here.
If we do nothing at least we’ll have close relationships and strong bladders.
