Everyone is going somewhere for the weekend. A few went to the smokies, some are spending the weekend in the pool, and we are here working in the sun and I am so sick of it. We are renovating our house to sell so we can start building on property we are getting from my parents farm in the spring. We are also doing a 3/4 acre garden spot that was supposed to be the whole family helping and benefiting. ( 250 bloody feet of potatoes, do you know how long it takes to weed, pick off potato bugs of that many plants) Right now its just us working and everyone talking about how good the fresh veggies will taste while eating my fresh eggs. I swear the last 2 months we have not had any time. If we take time away from renovation, gardening, building farm outbuildings its to take the kids to ballet or scouts and thats it. We are spending roughly 8 to 10 hours a day outside working and the rest doing renovations or going to work. So I am just fed up and I want some to steal a bit of time for us to do a little something. Something that involves cold water preferably. Everyone keeps calling to see how work is progressing on fencing, dog houses, goose houses, garden, watering and feeding dogs, cats, horses blah blah blah. We can't be gone all day because of all the work and the animals but I need a really awesome idea for maybe 5 or 6 hour family playtime. What does everyone else do to relax and have a bit of fun? At this point I am ready to set up a sprinkler in the field, fill a cooler with ice and pull out lawn chairs lol. desperate!
