It has been amazingly hot here the past few days. I have been stuck in my air conditioned cubicle anyway. Keegan's school has found fun ways to keep them cool and it also has A/C. I say that because in NE you cannot assume places do. Because for the most part you don't really need it. Hot days days usually end in cool nights and as long as I can sleep cool I am fine. The heat is supposed to break tonight and be cooler for the next week or so.
My schedule opened up for tomorrow so I decided to take the day off. I need to so some shopping, we have a showing at 11am and then I need to pack. Suddenly the idea of packing for a week away is more daunting that I previously thought. We're getting really excited for the Cape and I want to be prepared for everything. I have to tell you I am really looking forward to the outdoor shower at the cottage. I love outdoor showers. Some people have given us a few tips on things to do in the area. But we'll probably do a lot of discovering on our own. My parents are coming down for the latter part of the week. Jeff will most likely be working. And we have new kites that the kids each picked out plus some other toys for playing outdoors. Did I mention how excited we are? Finally things have slowed down at work after nine months so it is a good time to be away.
