My Summer, Thus Far {BORING!}

So, ummm, yeah....every two weeks like clock-work, I post to my blog.  And I'll tell you this, it has taken me about 34 hours to write this one, meager as it is!  My apologies in advance for wasting 17 seconds of your time to read this.  But you know me, I gotta catch you up on all the mundane things that I'm doing!

My summer, thus far:

And here's my breakfast this morning:  (Which, was I think Thursday morning, when I started this post.)  My new breakfast BFF's are eggs, avocados, and oatmeal.  Mmmmm!

1.  Three of my six kids walked through sewer water/mud today.

2.  Isaiah has declared, at least fourteen times, that he is going to find another family, or at the very least, go back to China.  I might let him.

3.  Here is a pic of me on what feels like day 3,487 of summer break. 

 3.  So, yeah...fortunately, (or unfortunately, however you choose to look at it), I have been working at my little waitressing job a lot lately.  And really, I do love it so much it at least gives me a chance to put on makeup and talk to big people.  Although we recently hosted a sorority formal and as I was serving a particular table their second course, I stood starring at them in disbelief that their napkins were still on the table.  In disgust, I took the napkin of the dolled-up girl closest to me and put it in her lap for her.  She was embarrassed and declared that they all really need to go to etiquette school.  I concurred.   

And my kids wonder why I'm so militant about table manners.

4.  It is my goal this summer to create premium boredom in my children.  And so far, I am well on my way to reaching that goal!  As a start, I  have even conditioned them to be excited about our once-a-week trip to the library.

5.  My farmy farm is coming along nicely!  Here are pics:

And goodness gracious, if I hope to ever publish this post, I better do it now or it's not going to happen.  So for the less-than-exciting goings-on!

I hope YOU are all having THE most fantastically boring summer also!

Also enjoying our boring summer. My oldest has even made a "I'm bored basket" where she put in things on paper to do--such as plan an exciting vacation, pick out names for future kids, take an hour nap, etc. I have visions of creating a real "I'm bored" jar with stuff like --go clean the baseboards, empty your hampers, clean the bathroom sink--you know real stuff :) I also have to say that you need to get that lovely garden of yours mulched with something girl! You will save lots of weeding/watering. I'm sure you can find a few bales of hay hanging around or something :)

I'm totally impressed with your garden! Wow...looks amazing. :) I have moments of longing where I think I could actually BE a farm girl but then I remember how much I hate to pull weeds in the blazing hot sun. Siiigh....
