Not Much...if Any

Well, as you have probably guessed my life has been pretty hum drum lately...hence, the reason for my blogging absence. I have been so uninspired I can't even think of any "crap" to post.

Since the purchase of our "new toy" we have been homebodies. The only person that really bothers is me. Everyone else in my house wouldn't mind being permanently glued to the home.

It's not that I don't like home, but I would like it much better if I were the only one here. You see, home is my job. When I am home I am working preparing meals and snacks, cleaning, refereeing fights and arguments, being on constant call for help of another family member..any wife/mother knows the list goes on and on.

So you see, it's not that I don't love my home I just like to "take off work" sometimes and be free of household annoyances. It would probably be more fun to be home for me if I could sit down and read a book uninterrupted, watch what I wanted to on T.V. without kids running around or asking me if they can change it to watch what they want ( I know I can say no, but T.V. really isn't that important to me), and just sit on my butt while someone else cleans up after me and fetches my meals.

No, I don't enjoy being home all the time. I need a day off at least twice a week. And by a day off I don't mean going to the grocery store or running errands. Selfish I know, but honest for sure.

On a more positive note, it has been nice to have the leisure of swimming in the pool after working up a sweat after some yard work or just to soak up some sun on the float.....barring there are not several splashing kids in it.

Summer season has not even began and I have seen Summer starting to tire of water activities. I guess when you have a pool in your backyard and full access everyday to swim it can get monotonous. I'm sure by the end of Summer I will be sick of looking at it myself...

We have also have been spending hubby's days off working on the deck. All work and no play makes mama a very dull and agitated girl.

Anyway, so that's what's been going on in our lives.

Here is the latest pic of the pool progress. Toby has finished a portion of the splash deck. Still a long way to go for our vision of the deck area but he's doing it solo so it may take awhile...I'm not much help in the construction area.


  1. Love & am jealous of the deck...Vic is/was gonna work on one for us, but it appears and I fear we'll spend yet another summer deckless... biggie in the long run I guess ;~)

  2. A walk in the quiet country around you may be a great idea, just you walking with yourself. Each step taking you on a journey into the wonders that surround you.....

    Failing that, there is chocolate!!!!!
