And at night, of course, we all have to sleep like this on account a' how the bloody sun won't just stay the fuck down long enough to get a decent night's sleep.
For the most part, we're enjoying ourselves.
I find myself fantasizing about day camp and summer school a lot, but then the kids get busy collecting blueberries, or building tents and playing baby crocodiles out by the lake, and I think "Isn't summer just the greatest thing EVER!"
I've read half a dozen books since school let out.
A few days ago I ran a 30 minute 5K (personal record).
And I sit here now with wickedly sunburned chest and shoulders (just reward, no doubt, for the attempted matricide of yesterday's aforementioned 5 hour hike).
So things are pretty much as they should be. Except I don't have nearly enough time for blogging.
