Sum, Sum, Summertime

Y'all . . . seriously.  This song brings me back . . . it was released in May 1991 . . . the year I graduated high school.  Shut up . . . I'm vintage.  I've had this song on repeat in my head since yesterday!  Why?

Because it was the last day of school for my babies . . . I now have two, count them, TWO middle schoolers . . . and a rising 4th grader.  WTH? 
Yeah, not their best smiles at 7 a.m.  Wake up kids!
While I'm going to mourn a little for my free time, I'm excited to have the yahoos home for the summer.  We have the usual going on . . . camps, vacations and the pool. 

In my head I'm going to get all kinds of stuff done this summer . . . like de-cluttering, photo organizing, deep cleaning . . . sounds like a real blast, uh?  But I'm nothing if not a social girl, so that stuff can all happen when I don't have fun plans. 

Like yesterday . . . we got invited to a "school's out for summer" party at 2 p.m.  We headed over, and I only left to feed the dogs (because I'm responsible) and get pizza for the kids for dinner.  We then closed down that party and headed over to another because we could . . . it's freaking summer.  Bam.  That's how we roll. 

So this morning I wake up to the messes I've been ignoring all week. 
Seems like I have mad decorating skills, uh? 
I love a neat and clean home but Getzy thrives on it so I'm sure he was twitching something fierce last night after he got home late from work.  It makes me a little crazy too but when it comes to fun or cleaning up the mess, fun wins every time. 

I've started to work my way through the laundry today . . . but the weather is amazing so while fun is a priority, sometimes so is relaxing with a good book.  This is my view this morning . . . keeps me from seeing the messes.
I wish you could feel the breeze . . . a rare treat on a hot Georgia day!
Anyone else skipping their chores and relaxing?  Tell me I'm not the only one . . . and don't judge my messes . . . I'll get to them soon.

I suppose another excellent place to avoid the dirty laundry or to buy crap to organize is Target, so don't forget to enter the $40 Target gift card giveaway that ends tomorrow!  Check it out HERE!!  The entries are pretty low so you're chances are pretty good.
