    Holly and Alix will have to know will power. No, not William Power, Willard Power, Wilbur Power, Wilfred Power or even Wilford Power. It’s just will power.

    They wouldn’t need willpower if they could get more interested in something other than TV. Wishful thinking, I know. More likely for Alix than Holly. Alix should still have her “ocean” to explore.

    Val should spring for 2 airfares to Capetown for a few weeks!

    I think we are about 15 minutes from, “You Gotta Love August”

    Holly I can see being a coach potato, but Alix? I thought she loved the outdoors.

    This will come back to haunt Val…

    Why the layers and long sleeves? I guess they’re having a cool summer.

    I am also surprised Alix is not getting her small pool ready for fun. With wearing long sleeves mean the weather there is still too cool for pool time?
    For my children they had fun time with VBS to library and park time. They rode bikes. My daughter learned to roller blade. I paid for swimming lessons. Small town. Son did not like water but video games.

    Re: Layering and long sleeves: My husband adjusts the A/C so that I have to wear a sweater indoors, though it may be 95°
    outside (Florida).

    Val is just a hater because the kids get to relax at home while she still has to get up and go to work everyday.

    @Kab Buch

    I was also wondering why Alix isn’t exploring the depths of ocean in her little pool.

    I don’t regret not watching TV as a kid. Now there are channels of those old shows and most of them aren’t very good. But I do miss the opportunities I could have had if I were a little cleaner and was able to present myself better. I had a job at the country club but was never able to golf or use the pool there like the other guys. I wish I could have used my money to buy clothes from decent stores and been able to save the money for some means of transportation instead of hungrily blowing it on food immediately after earning it.

    It is still cool here in OR. We’ve had a very cool rainy week this week with highs only in the 60’s. Explains the layering and long sleeves from our perspective anyway.

    You covering the cost for her? I’m sure she doesn’t have that kind of money coming in.
