Ugh! It is sooooo hot!

Hello all! I can't believe it is already the middle of July. Although this heat today is doing it's best to convince me. I have not felt like doing anything, it is simply tooo hot. The girls and I have spent four out of the last ten days at water/amusement parks. Yesterday we convinced Ernie to join us. We spent the entire day at the water park, having a blast. Mal was so tired. She fell asleep during the car ride home about 7:oo and slept until 8:00 this morning. She must have jumped into the pool 100 times. I woke up with a stiff neck from some of the rides. The young man kept telling me to keep my chin tucked, which I found very difficult to do with my eyes bulging out of my head! Thank goodness there are no photos to document some of my facial expressions. Ernie of course had no expression at all, well, maybe a small smirk. He looked as if he were going for a lazy afternoon stroll. I tried going backwards, maybe it would be less frightening. No not really. You just see the drop again on the other side!

While I am here, I will give everyone a brief update on our latest going ons.

Ernie has started back to school. He is operating on even less sleep but so far is hanging in there.

Devin is still in Western Kansas. Not sure when/if he is coming back.

Mal...........well, spends a lot of time playing and telling everybody what to do. She has become EXTREMELY independent. Ernie walked in the kitchen this morning. She was warming up a piece of chicken in the microwave. It was set for 79 minutes.

McKinsey starts volleyball camp tomorrow. The countdown to the first day of school begins.

Morgan is driving like a pro. Although she did say it unnerves her when I scream while she is driving. Guess I need to work on that.

As for me, I am still trying to stick with my exercise program. This heat makes it very difficult and I only went running twice this week.

As a matter of fact we're headed to the track right now. I need to work off Popeye's Chicken. But let me tell you, it was worth every bite!

Sounds like the hot temps have moved everyone outside for some summer fun. It sounds like the entire family...minus Devin...have been having a good time.

My business partner and I have started a new website for moms who live in the suburbs, small towns and rural settings. It’s called Out of Bound Moms and it’s just a community for moms to get together and chat about small town or suburban life and hang out in general. There is a social networking community where you can sign up for free and promote your blog. You can start a group page and promote your blog through that. The website has free membership and we don’t sell your info. it just has you sign up so you can have your own page, private messaging and privacy settings for pics and videos. It’s run my myself and my business partner charmaine, both of us are work at home moms who live in a small town. Anyways check out the website and sign up it is a fun and easy way to promote your blog that way you can drive new business to your website.
