Still every day life getting in the way of grown up playtime. I can't complain though, the kids are happy and enjoying summer. I just can't believe how busy I've been this week. I've been swamped. I'm definitely not a fan of summer heat, but I do like the kids to be able to run around and play outside. I was planning on enrolling our older child in some day camps this year, but he's been keeping pretty busy on the property with his friend from down the street. I'd rather he jump in and out our ponds and run around our acreage than drive him all the way to town every day to play with a bunch of kids he doesn't know. The beauty in which we live is a wonderful playground and he's at the perfect age to run wild in it. Of course, actually allowing him the freedom to run freely without my supervision (read: overprotection) is a monumental act of self control on my part. I'm learning to give him some room to grow, though. It's funny, though. All the things I find so beautiful and refreshing he wants to tear apart, shoot, or crunch under foot!
Ha! My neighbor just drove by on his tractor and waved. Man, I love living out in the country. :-)

Dear friends, I'm sorry that I don't have anything too exciting to share with you the last few days. Life has been fairly vanilla for the past several days with the children running wild in the sunshine and me trying to finish up some various domestic projects. Of course, that's not to say that our little life experiment isn't moving forward. On the contrary, it is.
D made a trip to the "toy" store on Friday and came home with a little surprise I haven't been introduced to yet. In fact, it's been hidden away (in plain sight) in our toy box which I'm not to look in. In the old days his directions to "stay out" would have been ignored. Not so now. That damn bag has been torturing me all weekend! One thing I know he did get was a new lovely jeweled barbell for my VCH piercing. It makes me tingly just thinking about him putting it in. I know, I'm weird.
Anyway, I hope to spend some time this week catching up on my favorite blogs (you know who you are) and inticing my darling, sexy husband into some raunchy, kinky sex. ;-)
