Summer, You Are a Cruel Mistress

Umm...what's the deal with the weather? I know I talk about the weather a lot, but it frustrates me so much, I have to complain about it all the time.

Actually, it was gorgeous all week--super sunny and around 80 everyday. But now that I have a 4 day weekend, it will rain again and only warm up to about 65. However, I was sporting a wicked sunburn a few days ago (it even blistered a little-that NEVER happens to me) so maybe it's better I stay inside for a few days.

I went to the pool last Saturday for the first time this summer which was fantastic. They raised the entrance price and it now costs SIX francs to get in, but I guess it was well worth it. I mostly just laid in a lounge chair working on my tan for the four hours I was there, but I did feel some ambition and swam a few laps to cool off. I swear, I could lay in a lounge chair in the sun FOREVER.

The kids have been pretty good lately. When the weather is nice and they can go outside and run around, it definitely helps. And they get to play with their kiddie pools now, which they love. And I love because it makes my job so much easier. Seriously. Thursday I laid in a lounge chair in the backyard all afternoon reading a book while the boys splashed around. When I got too hot, they would come over with watering cans from the garden and soak me down. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. But spoiling me like that will not make going back to Michigan-with its college classes and real job-any easier.

Did you watch the Glee finale? I absolutely LOVE LOVE that show!! And the finale made me laugh...made me cry...and the the music was AMAZING! I'm so happy Whitney showed me where to watch that show online, or I would've definitely missed out. (Speaking of Whitney, she's done au pairing and back in the US now)

Anyway, I just wanted to give you a quick update on what's going on around I have to go do some laundry and clean my room. Since the weather sucks, I may as well be productive.

Oh, and here are the links to the photos from Brandi's visit here. Facebook photo uploader decided to somewhat cooperate recently and I finally got them up!
Happy Saturday!
