Sometimes, when Graham crackers and that kind of stuff is on sale, I buy them. And sometimes, when we don't have a fire going and the grill has been turned off I make hillbilly s'mores-for you uninitiated, that's smores made either on the stove (if I feel super duper festive, and find a need to play with fire), OR melted in the microwave.
I love summer. I love the heat-since I am always so cold. I can't wait for menopause, just so that I can have a few hot flashes and just feel normal, since I'm sure they won't be hot flashes for me. I love summertime activities, and being outside all day every day. I love taking my kids on random road trips, even though I know most of my friends find this to be crazy. I love giving them experiences to meet new people and learn how to adapt (Look out Omaha, here we come!). And it will all be good.
I love the down time. I love the chocolate face.
