Gone All Loopy for Fall

Now is precisely that time of the summer when temps bust 90+ degrees for the gazillionth day in a row, pools are completely packed, kids get antsy to head back to school so they can reconnect with friends, and I’m all like:

I’ve had enough of this whole summer business! Bring on school! Fall! FOOTBALL! Heck, turtleneck weather even sounds good!

So glad that’s out. *whew* Feeling much better now.

Keepin’ Cool

The day started off eerily with a thunderstorm sneaking toward the metro area, thus putting a damper on the CK’s tennis lesson scheduled for the morning. But we watched and waited for the final weather verdict, then found ourselves at the tennis courts under bright sunny skies with broiling ‘Heat Advisory’ temps. Yet despite all that, the lesson went well and the kids left knowing how to serve the tennis ball across the court – officially now anyway, because they already had some idea before the lesson began thanks to trusty ‘ole incognito mom who gave the peeps informal lessons prior to this particular class. Nothing like a good re-schooling.

Back home for a bite to eat, then the CK’s and I had exactly one hour of shopping before my scheduled web consultation with a client. Catholic Son discovered a 6 month old Hollywood Video gift card he’d received as a birthday gift last January, but yet couldn’t find a single thing to buy with it after searching around the store. So what to do? Well, I did us all a favor and bought it from him, purchasing 4 DVD’s for the Catholic Family’s home entertainment stash:

  • The Women
  • Paul Blart, Mall Cop
  • Bride Wars
  • Taken

And with all of that sweltering heat taking place outside, I have a feeling we’ll be indoors watching those sweet lil’ flicks in no. time. flat.
