The sleep of summer vacation

June 20, 2011 at 2:46 pm (Day to Day, Pictures, Sleep Pic of the Day, Summer Break) (, )

This doesn’t even look comfortable. And yet, a severe thunderstorm from 5 am to 8 am, with 350 lightning strikes at last count, could not disturb the slumber of the weary summer breaker. Life is good.

Time to Drive

Gotta get these kids up and out of the house. Doctors and dentists. Fun summer vacation so far. But, I like to get all their appointments out of the way in the first week of break, that way they don’t have anything hanging over their heads for the whole summer. Just late nights playing video games and later mornings sleeping it off. They’re like mini-addicts. Perfect for a slacker mom like me that needs to get things done without their input and while they are crashed out. It’s the best way to have kids. Quiet and in the other room! They’ll thank me when they are older.

Cool Word of the Day! Two-Years Later Edition

June 20, 2011 at 8:23 am (Cool Words) (, , , , , )

Delude  (verb)

Definition:  To fool, decieve; to mislead utterly.

As in: Do not delude yourself into thinking you are going to pass the state boards if you do not start studying seriously for that test!!! Dumbass!!

(I added the last part as a bit of motivational jeering). I will prob be getting  a test date this week and I need to get back on track. All these brains may not rescue me without a little back-up knowledge. It’s crap out (again) anyway. Perfect week to finish all the Q’s I need to practice. So let’s go! One test per day plus 50 extra questions. I should be a “re-expert” by the end of the week. I think this post needs help with vocabulary. Tomorrow!
