sit and sweat

Yep, we've officially embodied all the cliches about summer in the south. When you sit and sweat, it is hot. Thankfully the air conditioning is working well, and even my attic writing space is comfortable for most of the day. I've curtailed my time up here to 10-2. After that, the a/c is hard pressed to keep up.

I spent three hours yesterday working on book sale publicity and press releases for the Friends. Today I need to take a peek at the policy manual for the book store and polish up a few things in it. The library is still drowning in returned books in need of shelving. I may head that way Wednesday as I need to download some pictures from their camera for my press releases.

The kids had a good first day of school......except we've already had a 'come to Jesus' meeting with the youngest. The kid is super bright but would rather ponder the universe and quantum physics instead of finishing his 'early bird work.' He can't seem to get it through his head that he could knock out the worksheet in 5 minutes and then spend the next 20 doing quadratic equations. He'd be happy, I'd be happy and the teacher would be happy. Arghhhhh. He's giving me gray hair daily. The oldest kicked some goalie butt yesterday at the clinic....wowsa, how did I mother such a fierce daughter? The middle one is happy as a clam, the posse is still intact except for two girls and her afternoon conference call assured all parties that the ties are still in place.

The joys of August.
