Signs That It's Going To Be The Best Summer Ever

Thank God it's summer at last and The Best Summer Ever at that. Well, the Best Summer Ever since last summer, and definitely The Best Summer Ever until next summer. It's already looking to be a great one:

  • 2 days of summer vacation so far and 2 play dates already. Both involved ice cream. Excellent.
  • This summer there is an actual pool in my backyard...something I haven't had for almost 20 years. And it's finally hot enough that the water temperature is starting to inch up a few degrees. No more schlepping to other people's pools. No more listening to "Moooooooom, why can't we have a pool too?" Woo Hoo!!
  • Last year's infant is this year's Toddler-Who-Sleeps-Through-The-Night.
  • A new house that we're no longer embarrassed to have people visit. Welcome Friends and Family.
  • Shave It. Heaven on a spoon. If I could afford it, I'd have the Shave It Van parked permanently in my driveway. Since I can't, I'll have to drive like the rest of the riff-raff.
  • Two kids in school means more friends than ever. And they all want to hang out with us. Hooray!
  • Preschool starts in July. As much as I love him, I also love that my little bundle of energy (and noise) has someplace to be 3 mornings a week.
  • Our babysitter, who we love, has agreed to come over one morning a week. Mom's sanity, which is in short supply, will benefit greatly. She's looking to work a lot. Hopefully this means a couple of movie dates too!
  • My friend around the corner wants to scrapbook as much as I do. I love a good enabler.
  • The credit cards haven't been rejected yet. Keep the fun coming!

thank god that you're into this best summer ever business. while, as every year, i'm thrilled for summer, i'm having trouble mustering up the ridiculous summer energy i had last year. although sunday's beach excursion certainly helped kick things off..

Kim-This one is the real deal. Rumor has it they fly their syrup in from Hawaii.

Tannaz-You are being a poopy pants because you made the huge mistake of getting a JOB right before the summer. Duh. Horrible planning. You'll be fine, it'll just take a few extra days at the pool and a few extra icy beverages. It wouldn't kill you to call in sick a few days either.

Beth-My sentiments exactly!!!!!

LOL, I thought that name looked oddly familiar, but when I clicked on it, it didn't go anywhere.
I'm one of those mom's huh? :) I should have given her a kick in the pants.
