It is not that is has been awful or anything... but is has been kind of hard and boring. My hubby works from home - he changed jobs in the school year and this was the first summer of this... and well, it sucked. It's not that I don't LOVE to be with him, because I do, I love him to the ends of the earth.... but having four rowdy kids in the house all summer, while he tries to work, has been trying at best. He is on the phone a lot, and my two littles don't quite understand that he is off limits. So everyone has been a bit grouchy. I have tried to take them out as often as I can, but I live in North Texas - so it is 100+ degrees most of the time, and there is just so much one can take of that! We also had to postpone our Disneyland trip because of hubby's job... so we have really not done all that much.
SOOOO.... I am not entirely unready for school to start. A statement that I am sure to regret midweek our first week in...but right now, August is not really making me sad...so I am linking up with Farley to celebrate it with a new Currently.
Does anyone have a computer with the pop off tablet screen? It sounds great, I just don't know anyone who has one and I want to know if the reality seems as good as the idea.
And my must haves...
- Scentos - I love them and right now they are .30 at our Michaels! I have a ton of them, but I bought more.
- Ticonderoga Pencils - I think they are the only pencils that actually sharpen without fail. I hate dollar store pencils with my whole heart. I buy them on amazon.com for about $15.00 of 96 - http://www.amazon.com/Dixon-Ticonderoga-Woodcase-Pencil-13872/dp/B00125Q75Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1375476541&sr=8-1&keywords=ticonderoga+pencils. I kind of hoard them.
