That ‘Must Take’ Photo

After spending much of the day watching Michael Jackson’s memorial service on television and zipping across town to Catholic Son’s baritone lesson with Mr. George, we broke down and found ourselves at the pool for the 19th time this summer. And what would a pool visit be without a certain mom standing poolside ready and waiting to snap a photo of that classic CANNON BALL jump off the diving board? All empty-like, I know.

Krispy Productivity

The day started with a BANG and me deep in sleep, finally adjusting to not having to wake up at 5:45 am. Didn’t take long, did it? Only this was the day I actually needed to get up early to take the cat to the vet for her checkup and dental cleaning. No espresso or breakfast, just a quick shower then the CK’s and I were out the door – with the promise of stopping at Krispy Kreme after dropping off Smokie. And holy cow was the trip worth it. Cream filled, chocolate covered goodness! Heaven in breakfast form! An extra 350 calories to burn off later! Oh crap, that’s right.

So what else would be on our summer ‘To Do’ list for the day? Let’s see, oh yes, a Paperback Swap mailing at the local post office, client web work from home, another visit to the local library to return an overdue book and sign CG up for a seminar in ‘Cartooning’, then Catholic Son’s baritone lesson with Mr. Gene Paul George, probably the most surprisingly entertaining part of the day. When else does a parent get to shoot the bull with a local music legend? Not too often, at least in this parent’s lifetime. But I digress…

Anyway, the rest of the day involved eating leftover tacos, hitting the treadmill, and finally listening to CG practice cello in front of her new mirror that we purchased at Target yesterday. A little reading and poking around on iTunes, then the CK’s were down for the count as Hubs and I hunkered down with a Netflix DVD and alcohol-based snack. Couldn’t ask for a more productive day, could we? Not a chance!

Except, guess what? The CK’s are suffering from swimming pool withdrawal, as if they’re going to dry up after being chlorine-free 24 hours straight. Did I mention it was cold & rainy today? Things do happen for a reason, but I have a feeling we’ll be right back at that pool in no time.
