July Recap And What’s Up For August

Despite (or maybe in part because) my birthday being in July this was not a good month for me. First of all my oldest son has to go to summer school which, in my school district, costs $300 that my husband and I really didn’t have. While I understand the supposed reasons behind charging for summer school, I think it damages the ideal of equal education for all through the public school system.

Next I severely sprained my back and the muscle pinched my sciatic nerve which sent shooting pains down the front of my legs. And sprains take a long time to heal. Essentially I was on bed rest for two weeks and then able to only drive short distances or sit for short periods of time. Oh, and I had to sleep on my couch.

Finally it has rained at least three days for every one of sun. So my poor five-year old has major cabin fever. The rest of my family just has the rainy day grumpies.

Hopefully next month, August, will be better. We have a lot of exciting things planned including a day trip to the Museum of Natural History in New York. Here on Living My Big Dream we’ll be talking about how different the world and the people in it are today from years – even decades – ago.
