Let me just tell you about my day. summer is killing me and it has only been less than a month! it is too hot for the kids to play outside, there is always the pool, but i'm not really feeling it today, so my kids are either chasing each other through the house, watching TV or hanging off my leg and asking me for food and water. this is all occurring of course while i am either on an important phone call or working with my mother in law on the computer. my nerves are fried and my patience is up. I HATE SUMMER (today anyways)!! As if mine and my kids boredom is not enough, we try to finish the day with family home evening at the pool with all the other church members who have a pool membership. we are not there 15 minutes and Jakob throws up. i am mortified because not only did he ruin the evening plans for everyone, but the pool is now closed for 24 hours and this is not the first time this summer it has happened. I am not sure at this point if i jump in a hole and hide or just go on like it's no big deal. Last year this was not a problem, but this year it apparently might ruin our summer. now i feel like we shouldn't go as much and i do not want to be responsible for ruining anyone else's summer. i even had one of the ladies at the pool pointing at me tonight as if to rub it in and make me feel even worse! HOW RUDE!! my other four kids are beginning to resent Jakob a little bit and blame him for not being able to swim, so i can't imagine the reaction of strangers. so what to do?? i'm almost considering revoking our membership, but then what am i supposed to do with five kids all summer. i think i will really lose my mind then!!
