We’ve fully entered summer vacation mode. Lazy days, playing in the back yard (when it’s not too hot), and chilling in the house (thank goodness for AC). I’ve managed to switch my piano students to mornings for the summer, so that it leaves the rest of the day to do things. It’s nice not having students right before I need to start making dinner. We’ve also jumped in with both feet getting Abigail transitioned from Pull-ups to regular underwear. It’s not been as bad as I was anticipating, so I think she’s more ready than she was the last time we tried. I still put her in a Pull-up for when we leave the house to go somewhere and for overnight, but we’re definitely making progress! Paul has been super busy at work and has also been busy building a new little free library for the neighborhood park (people in the neighborhood have donated materials, and a guy from the neighborhood offered to help him with some of it, so that was nice). Monday was quite an adventurous day. I loaded the kids into the car to go to the grocery store and then started the car. It struggled turning over, but it started. I thought it was a little weird, so I went to the gas station to fill up and get a car wash (which was an adventure in itself because the car wash wasn’t working…which I didn’t figure out until after I purchased the car wash at the pump…luckily, I was able to go the next day and still use the same code). The car struggled again to start up, so I decided to go to Walmart instead of H-E-B and have them look at the battery. Sure enough…it needed replacing. Luckily, it was still under warranty, so it didn’t cost anything. After we got the battery replaced, we were off to H-E-B for our groceries. Whew!
