Time to review my bucket list and see how my summer is panning out...
*******Sonic - only been a couple times - will do more often. Part of the problem is that they keep putting Bluebell on sale at Walgreen's, so we just slob out at home with ice cream.
*Make pickles - yes. I found a great recipe for refrigerator pickles here
*Den blinds - not yet. I have to get the bathroom tile replaced first, I think.
*Pool more often - grr. Rain. Although when it is sunny, I take my old mama self over there and try to exercise with my kickboard.
*Library - no. But I am making my way through this stack of books. I have read Heaven Lake and I really liked it. Plowing my way through The Samurai's Garden now. So, reading IS happening.
*Get Bubbie ready for camp - done. He had a good time and came home worn out. And smelly. And with three merit badges.
*Driver's ed - I told Bubbie we would wait til Spring. Once July 28th arrives, our lives will belong to band until Winter Break. That's fine - in my opinion, there is no rush to get boys to driver's ed. Up until age 25, they are the group most likely to die in a car. We good.
*Make donuts and pretzel bread - no. My pretzel bread was a fail. However, we have a plan to explore coffee shops in Austin where we will consume plenty of baked goods.
*Carol - Sigh. The rain cramped our plans. We set a rain date of August 8th. I have this to bring her:
*Paint chairs and kitchen - Fall. It just can't happen right now. Too much humidity.
*Visiting my mother - still haven't done this and it's been since May. I was planning on it last week and life got in the way again.
*Lunch out - yes! We've enjoyed Lucy's, BJ's Brewhouse, Asia Cafe, Super China, Hopdoddy's, Cafe Java, Niki's, Whataburger, and Torchy's, to name a few...
I bet the boys wish I would let them eat in peace.*Couch for firstborn - I think I'm going to give him the futon. I decided a papasan chair would be better for the Lounge. World Market has a great one I like. But again, so many other things have to happen first. The Girl is still living in that room and a large air mattress takes up the bulk of the floor.
*Grass - helped by rain and growing faster than we can keep up, although there are still bald spots I'd like to fill.
*Vacay - not yet.
*Car for me - ditto
Hopefully those few things I would like to do can get closer to getting done - we still have about 3 weeks of Summer vacay left!
