This is on my mind:
*Callouses- I have them on my hands from the dog leash. The splitter halter with 90 pounds of dogs pulling me along has ruined my hands. My feet are another story. I guess the running, the chlorine at the pool, and the flip flops have been wrecking the bottoms of my feet. I snag carpet. I could probably made a pedicurist run screaming for his/her life. Yikes!
*Night sweats are driving me crazy.
*I've ordered the license for the Tiny Town High School musical this fall. I could probably spend the rest of the summer preparing, and still not be ready for auditions and practices.
*The weather reminds me a bit of the summer of 1980 when I was pregnant with K. I think there were 25 straight days of temperatures over 100. I like reminding K that this is all paybacks!
*My sophomore boy just had his 5th treatment. He wears a different T-shirt for each treatment, stating who he is going through it for and showing a picture of them. This treatment was for his friends--and the photo was of about a dozen bald boys who had shaved their head to look like him. Gave me a lump in my throat. And he is only about one-third of the way through.
*Fresh Pineapple. I craved this after my stroke. They cost about $7.00 a piece that year, and the Mr. bought them for me anyway. I still love fresh pineapple, and thankfully--they cost a lost less.
*The saddest part of my summer--the tomatoes are late. I still haven't had a BLT this summer. If the son-in-law knows what is good for him, he will share some of the wealth when those 30 (!) tomato plants come through. I might cut into his salsa production a little, but it is hard to underestimate the value a happy mother-in-law!
Deep thoughts this Friday, I know. Happy July 1st! Stay cool!
