    We're cleaning out the cellar (we did a real good job of cleaning the house of clutter and stuffed all of it in the cellar).......We do have volunteer work coming up at the shelter, a picnic, basketball practices (4x/week), a day at the amusement park and a couple movies to see at the theatre. 

    We may fly out to see the in-laws but i'm not sure. DS1 and DS2 need surgery, so I need to make those appts.

    Our main project for this summer was to get the house hvac system replaced, which has been done. I cannot say enough how happy I am that we finally decided to 'just do it' this year. It has made all the difference in the world from the standpoint of comfort even though it was a very expensive investment. The electric bill to date has been substantially less than normal, and I will monitor it in hopes that this trend continues. Would like to finally finish cleaning and organizing things in the barn. It is still a work in progress and a lot remains to be done. Looking forward to our upcoming annual beach vacation.
