After a fun Fourth of July weekend, I was looking forward to an eventful accompanying week. Alas, it was not meant to be. Littlest has been under the weather for a couple days with a mild fever that has wiped him out, and the weather itself hasn't cooperated -- overcast, humid days on which you aren't quite sure what to plan. As a result, the week went by fast and seemed unproductive. I look at the calendar and see we are past a third of the way through summer, with vacation coming up soon, then August, and then fall ... and when I get negative like that, it makes me cringe over weeks like this past week even more. There isn't much you can do about a kid getting sick or the weather sucking, except to look forward to the next day and hope it's better. So here's hoping tomorrow is better.
