Craptastically Miserable

That's how I'm feeling tonight.  A touch of the tummy yucks, but I'm sipping some D.C. and watching old Veronica Mars episodes until I'm back to normal.  Hope it's sometime soon, though I'm not sure where it came from. Maybe stress induced?  Nah, that can't be it, I'm so stress-free!

Speaking of stress-free, school is almost over.  Just over a week until my little sweeties are home for the summer.  I'm not sure if I'm ready.  The amount of arguing that goes on around here is epic, and that's when they're apart most of the day!  I've been looking for some ideas for the summer to keep the kids busy AND to keep them from losing everything that they learned this year. I think I'll reinstate S.Q.U.I.R.T. (Super Quiet Un Interrupted Reading Time).  It can be a 1/2 hour reading time, and maybe earning going out for an ice cream cone once a week, or some other such outing or treat.

Crystal & Co. has a list of inexpensive things to do during summer break.  We already go to the library once a week, so we'll keep doing that.  We have tons of puzzles, so having one going for quiet time might be a good idea.  Maybe a Day Camp for the little boys with Sally as their counselor on the afternoons I'm at work.  I'll have to bust out the old Family Fun magazines for fun crafts, projects and games.


Gas has gone down to a still not very palatable $3.85 here.  Sad when that sounds good, though.  So we'll still keep the driving to a minimum.

I just hope they don't eat me out of house and home.  How am I going to keep that from happening?

What are your plans for the summer?  Let me know if you've got any cheap and easy ideas for the kiddos!

I have been feeling crappy too, but not with my stomach, more in my head/sinus issues. I wanted to tell you I just came across an old comment you made on my blog about the 72 hr kits (not sure why I didn't see it before) but I like the idea of having a list of what people are to grab. Thanks for the tip!

Sipping DC? Translation for the Aussie?

I like the SQUIRT idea! I have to institute it for myself!
