Summer Schedule Implosion and Pushing Too Hard

Well, we're there again: the point in the boys' summer vacation where they're thoroughly off their schedules, and we don't have enough scheduled activities lined up for them, and Beautiful Wife and I are both too busy with work and too tired to really keep them on schedule.


Add to that a lot of trying to keep the house clean and some dental work yesterday morning, and I just... ran out. Headache, mild nausea, exhaustion... I called in to work from the dentist's office, went home, and didn't do much of anything for the rest of the day.


Beautiful Wife has looked up some more camps we can put the boys in, which would be great -- without something like that, they just keep gradually staying up later and later, which makes it harder and harder for us to get anything done in the evening. After the Washington DC trip at the beginning of the summer we can't really afford summer camps, but we really can't afford not to have the boys in something like that. And while having them in the house has been fine so far (they're old enough to take care of themselves, if necessary, which means that Beautiful Wife can make a run to her office when she needs to), we really need to get them out of the house more. And back on schedule -- did I mention back on schedule?


So, the first order of business is get our stuff back under control (including, apparently, my health). Next up after that is figuring out how to handle the boys for the rest of the summer.
