I think it's actually raining right now. Not a hot summer rain like you guys get in the South, but a cold, wet rain. It's August 15th and it's raining! I know summers in the Bay Area are generally cold, but isn't this going a little overboard? It can't be more than 55 out there and it's raining! On August 15th! I know, it's going to get hot very soon and I'll be wistfully reminiscing about the days when it was cold ("Remember how it rained on August 15th? Those were good times.") I actually hate hot weather. I hate heat, I hate the sun, I hate it! I don't know why, I've always been this way, and I grew up in LA where it's always hot and sunny. So, I actually prefer it to be raining like this, I just find it very odd, because it's August 15th and it's not supposed to be cold and raining.
For some reason, though, it's making me incredibly unmotivated to do anything. We have plans today to drive across two bridges (Child 1's new obsessions: The Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. He looks at pics of them on Google maps and we discuss their colors and shapes. Then he draws them. Oddly, when he draws them, they both look exactly the same except for the color of the marker he uses, but he can tell them apart, and that's what's important.) Anyhoo, that was our plan today and I can't seem to get my ass up off this couch. I doubt that if it was sunny outside I would be any more motivated, but the fact that it's actually raining on August 15th makes me just want to sit here. My kids are happy to be doing their various screen-related activities, as well, but at some point I'm going to have to move my ass from this position.
In the meantime, I'm stuck here in front of my computer looking at various websites that don't interest me. Anybody have any suggestions for some good timewasters I haven't seen yet?
