Summer....


I love you.

But you mess with me in so many ways.

Your lack of schedule totally throws me for a loop....
I have more time....but get less done.....
....how?!

Your long days trick me into staying up late,
swimming or playing games with my kids.

My usual wake-up time at 6:00am isn't so friendly..
...and neither am I.

I love the hot days and having friends over to swim,
or going to lunch with someone spontaneously,
or taking in an afternoon movie with a kid.
...don't get me wrong.

But "people" start getting upset when...
they don't have any clean underware,
or clean pool towels, 
or dinner ready to eat at 6:00 pm.

They don't seem to understand your affect.

and then there is blogging....

Summer, you are very jealous of blogging...
and do everything you can to entice me out of the house 
and away from the computer!!!

....and it's working.

I love this! I've had many of the same feelings.

But I do NOT still get up early! :-)

Heather of the EO said...

YES. Me too. :)

I'm tricked into staying up later because of all the light too. Then up with the early light. It's so true. More time, but less time :)

Oh I feel this same exact way...where does the time go?!

Christine said...

I feel the same way. Summer is the best, but it's far too short--making it necessary to make the most of every minute.

=) Don't you love the long days, though?

I have more time and get less done at work during summer too! Very frustrating! (might help if I took Google Reader off of my computer, haha)

Teresa Dawn said...

Haha, I can understand that one :)
