What do you mean the weekend’s over?

Let's GO!

I can’t believe the long holiday weekend’s over and it’s time to get back to work. I also can’t believe it’s July already.

I put about 120 miles on my ATV, some with kids and some without. I’m feeling every one of the “without” miles, I must admit. The Short Kid and my sister rocked the mud and mosquitoes with us while the Tall Kid went to his first French & Indian War reenactment event with my mom. He had an amazing time, which is a huge relief for me. (I’ll share a few pics later in the week.)

But now I have a mountain of muddy, Deet-reeking debris from camp and a mountain of 18-century debris from Fort Niagara and I don’t even know where to start. Kerosene and a match probably isn’t the right answer.

Also, somebody fed my daisies steroids while I was gone.

Now I’m sucking down coffee, glaring at the debris fields and trying to kick into work mode.
