I have arranged my work schedule so I have Mondays off. Well, mostly off. I work at 9 p.m. until midnight.
During the summer, I try really hard to do something fun with my kids on Monday. Since we have season’s passes to the local waterpark, that often means I drag myself out of bed (after finishing my Sunday night shift at 1 a.m.) and head to Wild Waves.
That’s what we did today. The weatherman said the temperature would reach over ninety degrees (we’re having a little heat-wave here in Washington). Perfect day, right?
We arrived at 10:30 a.m. and though the park had only been open for thirty minutes, every single lounge-chair was in use. I usually spread towels out on a couple of chairs so we have a home-base, but that was impossible today. A million people and their children and neighbors were all at Wild Waves today. Were you there? Because I think the entire population of earth was at Wild Waves.
We stayed for two hours and then headed home. Even the kids were ready to go because it’s no fun to be at a waterpark when there are long lines everywhere.
Who wants to be outside in a heat-wave, anyway, when you can be home in the air conditioning?
I had a hair appointment this afternoon, but both football practice and soccer practice were canceled. That’s good because I was exhausted. After a quick trip to the grocery store, I took a nap.
Then I worked and now here I am, about to sleep. (I. Am. Boring.)
And tomorrow is a Sleep In Day. I have declared it and thus, it shall be.
