Good morning! It is going to be another day of upper 90s here. The house is not cooling off very well at night, so no one slept well. Today is the last day of swimming before the State meet tomorrow. After State, only dd2 will be swimming, so that will make things easier. She is on a countdown for the final championship meet that starts August 1. I cannot wait for the season to be over!


To do:

ds3 to practice this morning

home/pick up dh/ passport appointment

daily chores

get ready for meet tomorrow

relax a little


Have a great day!

Good morning!


Our power conked out during a severe storm last night and has been out for about 14 hours. Our generator is running most of the house, but it's not powerful enough to run the AC (sob!). Of course this had to happen during the worst heatwave of the summer and the power company won't give us any estimate of when it will be fixed.  :glare: So I have to go poke around the basement and try to unearth some fans and maybe run to town to buy a window AC.


Also, when we turned the generator on last night, it didn't power our well as it was supposed to, so we had no water all night. That meant our horses' automatic waterer wouldn't fill up, so we had to go out and dodge lightning bolts as we hauled water up from one of the pastures for them. Thankfully, our wonderful electrician came over at 6 am and got the well hooked up, so now the horses have plenty of water and we can flush toilets again - hurray!



•oldest ds has physics final

•clean main floor (it has looked like a disaster area for days)


•work on house training with puppies (they are learning to ring a bell hanging from the doorknob when they have to go)

•dinner: ??? no clue, maybe fajitas

Working at the office again today.

Lots of deadline work.

Some personal stuff - make a car appointment etc.

Meet city law department over an easement they want to force us to give them.  (They want to cut out part of our driveway, where I park, grr.)

Kids need to go to bed early tonight, because I am sick of them stressing me out in the morning.
