It’s been a kind of fits-and-starts couple of months around here, with a certain amount of yard work and house work being done some weeks and others… well, not so much.
Today I scrubbed the shower out, put a new shower curtain liner up, did a couple of loads of laundry, and refilled all my little bottles of shampoo and conditioner and all that for my gym bag. A few other things got done along the way, and now I am going to pack up and head to the pool before work. For me, this is a seriously productive day.
Oh, and the Collective Spawn ™ are all enrolled in swimming lessons twice weekly starting in August. Take that, freakishly responsible parents who routinely get this kind of thing done without fuss! IN YOUR FACES!
To be fair, what brought that on was a one-two punch combo of a) taking Elder Spawn to the pool the other day and watching her go almost literally insane with joy, and b) being reminded by my ex that I had agreed to be the one who enrolled her.
In case all this self-congratulatory stuff isn’t doing it for you, here’s a photo of a truly magnificent slug that we saw at camp. Seriously, this thing was huge.
