Re-Entry into Regular Life

It's 9:00 p.m., and it's still 89 degrees here, which clearly made it a hot one today, which clearly made it a great day for:

  • Rolling right out of bed and going running first thing in the morning.
  • Dropping the girls off at Gymco and using the time to get groceries and a pedicure.
  • Packing lunches and heading straight from Gymco pick-up to the pool for two hours of splashing and swimming and catching up with friends.
  • Taking naps in the air-conditioned house.
  • Making Ziploc-baggie ice cream for an afternoon snack.
  • Washing the car with the girls, then spraying each other and running through the sprinkler afterwards.
  • Eating the very first green beans of the summer from our garden for dinner.
  • Reading lots of books on the couch before bed.
I usually think it's tough to get back into the swing of regular life after a few days away. But this time? Seamless. Maybe that's because summer is awesome any way you slice it; maybe it's because I'm still ignoring the giant piles of laundry on the bedroom floor . . .
