I have officially survived one month of summer vacation! For the most part it hasn’t been too bad but I think the kids are starting to get bored. I have been dealing with the allergies from HELL so haven’t felt like doing a whole lot recently 🙁 I sneeze and itch when I’m in the house and going out of the house just makes it even worse. I never used to have problems this bad, and nothing is working, so I have to go see my dr. on Friday.

Hmm..not a whole lot of interesting news to report..I did join a produce co-op recently and I got my first shipment last week. For $23 I got the following:

1 bunch of celery
2 bunches broccoli
8 bananas
1 head romaine lettuce
1 pineapple
12 granny smith apples (kid-size)
3 large white onions
1 bag grapes (large, maybe about 2-3 lbs?)
1 cantelope (small)
8 ears corn
1 pint blueberries
1 lb strawberries
5 tomatoes
8 oz mushrooms
4 bunches green onioins
2 lb carrots

Most of it is already gone, and unfortunately I think the next pickup isn’t until next week sometime. I was hoping to not have to buy anything from the store but I guess that is not going to happen lol. All I have left at the moment are a couple tomatoes, some green onions, maybe half the celery, the broccoli, carrots, and romaine lettuce…maybe a couple of apples. Oh, and the blueberries and half of the grapes that I have in the freezer.

I am also in the process of looking for a part time job..we recently found out that we need a whole new roof on the house and that is going to cost us $5000 or thereabouts. We are also looking into whether we can add on to the house…I am doubtful, because our funds are about zilch..but a couple people we have talked to said it may be possible for us to do that and keep our payments about the same because of the low rates right now. We’ll see….it would definitely be a blessing but it seems too good to be true, kwim? Oh, and the a/c is not working right either 🙁

Hoping to maybe go swimming this afternoon…need to check the pool though…I forgot to put the clorine duck back in it a couple weeks ago and it went green so now we’ve been having to mess with it to get it back to normal and I am not sure if it is there yet. I’d take them to the Y, but the afternoon session is always so packed and the last time I took all 3 of them by myself I felt like I had whiplash by the time we left, just trying to keep an eye on all of them.

How is everyone’s summer going?
