Lazy Days of Summer Are Here….Yeah…Riiiiight…

So. I have survived the end of Daughter’s senior year of high school. First there was the spring musical that ate all of our spring. Then the whirlwind of prom (with all the dressings and accessories and such), Disneyland (we only had to prep her), last band concerts, recognition ceremony, and finally graduation and Daughter’s graduation/early birthday party.

School has finally been out of session for one week. The first day of summer has visited and we are officially in those so called “lazy days”.

Uh huh.  Sure.

We are now working toward getting Daughter ready for College.  There is the packing of sentimental items, sorting of outgrown clothing and books and entertainments, finding of stuff to pack for a very small dorm room.  There is the continued search for scholarships.  We will be making an early summer trip to Southern Oregon University for registration, orientation, and reception to acknowledge that she won a diversity scholarship.

Then there’s the play.

What play?  A new local youth theater, Ahz Youth Theater, is staging Jekyll and Hyde in early August, and we are involved.  Daughter will be Stage Manager!  For money!!  And I am helping with costumes, starting this weekend.  You saw that coming, didn’t you?

But wait, there’s more.

We have the usual annual Berry Picking at Phipps Ranch in Pescadero for the 4th of July.  (Come.  The more the merrier.  Support small family farms!) We are now planning a weekend trip to Chowchilla to see the Fossil Discovery Center in summer.  Husby and Daughter love bones.  It seems like a nifty place to visit.  (Except that it is in the heat of summer.  Oh joy.)  Another trip to visit In-Laws in Oroville also needs to be managed.  (Again, in the heat of summer.)   And then, it’ll be time to take Daughter to College in September.  Oh, then us empty nesters will be going to the Folsom Renaissance Faire in October.

And you know of course that in those unplanned days we’ll be doing the usual home chores, nose-to-grindstone work at the office, and summer house maintenance.  Oh, and I might get around to posting pictures on this blog of the costuming, play, prom, graduation and such from spring.

Lazy days ain’t happening til fall.



  1. Lazy days in Fall? I hope you and Hubby are planning a weekend get away for just the two of you. Hugs!!
