Are We There Yet?
It sounds like (dare I say this? ) the weather may be improving and pools are opening this weekend, so jump in, hunt for some bargains, create art at the market, catch a big one or enjoy music from some up-and-coming bands!
My friend Kerry, the House Nut, started a blog the other day about her favorite obsession: houses.
Specifically, lusting after (and mentally redecorating) other people’s houses. It’s called “HousetalkN,” and it’s wonderfully clever.
Anxiety dawns slowly.
Every morning, I wake with the thought, “Does anybody have a game tonight?” Followed closely by, “(Expletive), did I wash his/her uniform?”
There are bigger things in life to worry about, but this time of year, I have no time for world crises. I haven’t even watched Will and Kate’s nuptials.
Build your own creations, plant some seeds or go sailing, check out a bicycle rodeo, or kick off your summer plans at the Savoy Recreation Center! Lots more outdoor activities this weekend ... so let’s all do the “No more rain” dance!
The big event this weekend is the University of Illinois Commencement, of course, but if your kids don’t feel like sitting through a graduation ceremony you can listen to music, watch a rocket launch or get outside to run, play or canoe!
When my kids were very young, they had big dreams.
My son wanted to be a baseball player. Or a basketball player, depending on the season.
My daughter was an interesting mix. Her choices ranged from ballerina-princess to machine-maker.
