Why It's Harder...

...to get editing done in the summer when the kids are off: 


#1 - We want to swim in the pool; 





#2 - They keep asking me questions about some of the great books they are reading and I'm a sucker for discussion (and they know it). As a complete aside, I realize that while my kids are busy reading classics this summer, I'm into decidedly less literary books by authors like Diana Gabaldon and Stephen King. 




#3 - I have tie-died shirts to rinse, wash and hang and they want that done asap. They went to a barbecue and pool party yesterday and made these. Lots of 60's era fun:)





#4 - They are using my cell phone for a calculator and everytime Andrew texts me, they tell me, and that makes it harder to ignore (not that I EVER ignore texts from my husband. EVER.); 




#5 - Same as #1.

And see previous post :)
Not really lazy to want to enjoy beautiful sunny summer days. And hot weather makes one want to indulge in a bit of basking anyway - deck, chaise, book, music, drink - anyone???
Really hard to get the weekend housework done on a sunny weekend, can't escape the office during the sunny weekdays though.

Tell you what, I'll come swim in the pool for you. Because I'm just helpful like that :P.

I'm with you on this! And after that second swim in the pool, it's nap time, right? :)
