I'm in a summer rut. I can't do anything that costs money and it's too hot to do anything outside (seriously... there was a heat index of 102º at 6 at night). What is a burnt-out Mommy to do?
I tried driving around, having little "adventures" with them, which somehow ended up with me getting Slurpees, and the Slurpees getting all over the inside of the minivan. That is absolutely not fun. I don't like driving in general, and doing it with three kids in the middle of summer is not my idea of happy happy joy joy..

I'd rather see the dentist than take them downtown. Seriously. The pool would be an option were it not for the fact that, after two summers of swim lessons, the kids still cannot swim, although they are very enthusiastic about the whole thing. It's not my imagination; the teachers recommended that they all repeat the same class they just took. This would not normally be a huge problem if my husband was home, but he will be gone in an even hotter, albeit dryer, place until the very last day of summer. Hmm.
So I'm thinking to myself, Kim, you need to do SOMETHING with these children during the last month of summer or you will go nuts. More nuts, I guess...
I am thinking of something non-video game-related. I've got nothing. Sooooooooooooo....
Hit me with your best ideas. My friends are very clever people and I am sure they can come up with something.
