Here in Whoville we love the summer. Despite being forced to get summer jobs gainfully employed, the schedules of the Precious Daughter’s are most relaxed. There is plenty of time for reading, seeing friends and just plain hanging out. Moreover, they are able to bask in the radiant joy which pours from their mother as the days grow long and warm.

For many summers now we have kept a boat in a slip at a nearby lake. We are door to dock in fifty minutes which is all kinds of awesome. We have spent countless days with the Precious Daughter’s and their friends floating, skiing, eating, laughing, keeping current with their music, introducing them to ours and just plain hanging out.

This weekend we went to the lake Saturday AND Sunday. (Shut it! The weather was perfect and we did both trips on about half a tank of gas!) Saturday we took the Precious daughters and their BFFs. Sunday we brought OUR best friends.

On either end of these lovely day trips were a Friday night outing with my girlfriends to see “Sex and the City” (What? We had a blast! Manhattans and Cosmos at my house beforehand and I brought the Movie Purse!) and a lovely dinner at our neighbor’s house Sunday evening (complete with owl sightings!).

But here’s the thing; if you spend every waking minute of the weekend doing absolutely nothing useful? You will wake on Monday morning with dirty clothes, wet towels, no food in the house, gardens in disarray, and in desperate need of both a Costco run AND a liquor store run.

Then that Monday morning just feels like work!

I suspect it was worth it.

Yeah, but baby....it's soooo worth it!

Can I come to your house for a weekend? It sounds like so much fun!
