I'm still kind of ignoring what is right around the corner. There is hardly a pencil with an intact eraser to be found in either of my houses. Back to School clothes? Pshaw! It's still shorts weather! (And will be until mid-December is you ask Evan) Besides, I think my kids all get their growth spurts in October.
I'm starting to plan for the fall. I gotta get this gall bladder issue looked at. Every night I go to bed with THE FEAR despite the addictive strength and quantity of pain killer the good doc prescribed for me for just in case. When should I start up again with the trainer? The new new undead therapist? DO I need to see him still? Well, I'm still fat..... The EMDR therapist?!? Should I see her instead? My framer/gallery guy? He hasn't called me, which I assume to mean he hasn't sold anything. Dang. I decided I am going to make Josh into a swimmer. I want him to have a sport and if I don't push him to do something that is an actual sport his sport will end up being something you do on an x-box.
I'm thinking of being more restrictive with the kids than I have been over the summer with anything screen related. Evan came home from camp and has been texting his camp friends ALL DAY LONG since. Luckily we had an unlimited plan for that already instated. I'm trying to figure out a strategy that satisfies my hatred of the evil brain killing screen that the kids won't find so crushing that they they need to rebel against it. Suggestions welcome. I'm pretty sure that what I am thinking of using to get the kids away from the screens isn't going to work. It involves bricks and hammers. On the screens, not on the kids! Jeez, people, you should you know me better than that!
