Summer?

Where has my summer gone?!!

It's already the middle of July and I feel like I haven't really enjoyed my summer yet. It's been a lot of go here, go there, do this, do that. Vacation was a nice change of pace, but it was too short and there was little relaxing going on. I'm used to our vacations on Topsail Island, North Carolina, and Hocking Hills was not a beach.

I need more time doing nothing. When will that happen? I just want to relax in the yard and let the boys splash in a pool. But we don't have one. I want to take the boys to Metro Beach and let them splash in the water, but it's been unusually cool and I think they'd whimp out after 15 minutes. I wanted for Matt and I to have a few relaxation days away, just the two of us, but he only has one period of three days off before I start work in August.

Ugh. Summer was so much more fun when I was 10. And when I was 16. And when I was 21. Not so much fun going on 30.

I feel the same way, especailly when I see all the back to school stuff showing up at the stores. Seems like it went so fast this year!

Oh my Elissa - your comment about how summers were so much more fun when you were 10 reminded me of how I used to think the summer was SO long, and I oculdn't wait for fall to see my friends again. Now, summer is gone in less time than it takes to sneeze! Aaaargh! Like you, I long for summers past!
