It’s summer. Need I say more?
I didn’t think so.
It’s rained this week. All. Week. Every. Day.
I actually enjoyed working because I knew I wasn’t cooped up in the house with bored kids trying to fray each other’s last nerve as a past-time. I was glad the girls had day-camp to go to. Glad the boys are old enough to entertain themselves with bike rides and skateboarding (in between the rain) and horn practice and video editing.
Last night though. The rain mojo. Oy. So bad. So bad that on the way to our son’s July 4th concert I turned the car around. Yes I did. We kicked the girls out. Yes we did. We made them go back in the house. Yes we did. It cancelled all “rest and relaxation” time for our 15-year-old, but hey if Mama and Papa aren’t getting any R&R why should he?
We asked each other, “What the he** are we doing wrong???”
Reality: Rainy week. Less than adequate planning. Tired kids. Tired parents. Boom!
Answer to our question: “nothing”. We are doing everything right. Life happens. Especially when you have 6 personalities to deal with. And rain. Life happens.
