I want to find ways to enjoy my life. So,I have been going to my friends cook outs. I have gone away for the weekend to a girlfriends house. I find I am doing the same thing day after day. Working and getting home to clean and cook for the family. I hope we all can find a way to enjoy life. My neighbor across the street invited me to his cookout saturday. I will be going to this one too. How are you enjoying the summer months? Have a blessed day.

Aw man! I do the same thing every day! can not take it!!!! I am sorry that you had been feeling that way but I am so glad that friends have been giving you opportunities to do other things. Hope that you have a lot of fun! I mainly send each and every day at home on the computer.. "yays sarcastically". $-MrDollars-$

My family and I went to the beach and swam in sea. It enjoyed me and them.

My summer so far has been pretty boring actually. I am stuck in the house looking at the same walls every single day. I do the same thing day in and day out. It's pretty depressing. I don't have any friends either so that makes it worse. I don't drive so I never get out anywhere.

Hello Linda :) It's the same with me. Working, cooking, cleaning, washing. But we have guests every day, this is the difference. I want just one week without guests, because that way it is now, makes me care about everything, if i don't have people at home every day, i'll take it slowly and will clean, cook and everything when i'm free, when i can, when we want to eat. This time, i spend with my guests, i can spend for myself, but there is no way, for now. My boyfriend is sick of stones in his kidneys, so he can't go out a lot, we stay at home most of the time. I live in his city and don't know where to go out without him. So my days are similar... Day by day :) I hope, there will be days, when we will have car, enough money to go out, and will just relax. It will be real rest. Because now, when i'm free i stay on my laptop, this is the one way i can connect with the world and our guests, of course, but they are few people :) I don't think it's rest when you lie in front of the pc ... Virtual world doesn't act good for us.

Hi Linda~ I think that it's great that you are getting out and keeping busy! I don't remember the last cookout I've gone to. My girlfriend/neighbor hasn't had one in the last two Summers I think. I really miss our grillin'! This Summer has just flew by and I haven't done anything fun. It's been way too hot! I'm going to Florida in September so I will have my sun and swim time then! At least if the weather cooperates since it's Hurricane season.
