Alarming Posts

air conditionerAll these posts about alarms reminds me that in two weeks, we’ll be living in an alternate universe. The husbands will be off to work (if they still have jobs with this recession) and we’ll be lolling in bed while trying to plan in our heads how we’re going to get through the day without having the kids drive us totally insane. Pertinent summer questions:

Is there a park nearby? Picnic? Who’s pool can we crash into? What carpool is going to the movies? And what am I going to do with the littlest one? Can I get a workout in? Do I really have to make three meals today? And the best is, how do I go food shopping and plan a meal and actually cook something when it’s burning hot out and only my first kid knows how to operate the grill?

Ah summer!


More pertinent summer questions:

Can we have a babysitter for the day and then for the night?

Are we allowed to drink more cause it’s summer?

If we turn off the hot tub does it count as a pool?

What ARE those big ass bugs that aim for my hair while I’m sitting up in bed at night reading?

Sweaty sex… should I or shouldn’t I? Do I invest in air conditioning just for the bedroom?


(OK – all the guys are saying to themselves, “Does she really ask herself that?” All the gals are saying to themselves, “Get the air conditioner!!”

    That’s right! You’re too young to give up on sweaty sex. If you give that up it’s all over, sister!

    Plus you’re from the east coast, you get the best sticky, sweaty summers there. You were born in that briar patch and there ain’t no denying it.

    Anything that makes you sweat = good. And, sex = good.
