"what to do with the kids so mom stays sane" summer plans

Adding to this as I get suggestions...please contribute!

Yes, I'm alive

I have been blogging a lot over at recently, but plan to keep this blog up as well.  I have been busy recovering from my recent surgery.  Recovery meaning watching lots of junk TV, napping, and reading.  I actually finished a fiction book for the first time in who knows how long. Yes, it was Hunger Games.  And yes, I really enjoyed it.

Last week our family went on an outing (the first one since my surgery) to the big city and rode the DUCKS. I will blog a post about that soon.  It was so much fun.  The whole family really seemed to enjoy themselves.

Since that day trip, summer has been on my mind. "What to do with the kids so mom stays sane" is the theme. I am going to be thinking of a bucket list of summer activities that won't break the bank for us to do.  Suggestions appreciated!! Remember, we live in the Pacific NW, where gas is expensive, rain is common and when it is hot, air conditioning is not always present!

I am in the hospital and on drugs. I wanted to tell you about my new blog, where I am updating and explaining what is going on.
