The Weather is Killing Me

Okay, so here's the deal summer. You're warm. No, screw that. You're supposed to be hot. Seriously hot. Hot enough that parents permanently have towels and sunscreen packed and ready to go to the pool on a moment's notice. It's Central Illinois. Mugginess and 90 degree temps are supposed to be something you can count on. It's like death and taxes. So why are you screwing with me Mother Nature?

Every day that we've planned a pool day, you've literally rained on our parade. And then today, it's so cold they closed the pool all day. And tomorrow ain't looking much better. Unfortunately, we were scheduled to go to the Bloomington Spray park. Instead, I think we're going to end up at the Bloomington Chuck E. Cheese.

But seriously, where did summer go? It was here two weeks ago. And I don't know about the rest of you, but when I was a kid, I considered July 4th the hump of summer. Time hits the holiday as its peak and boom -- it's a fast downhill, roll to the start of school.
