Slippery, Sleepy, Summer

What is it about summertime that makes it slip so sneakily past? Here I am, one and a half weeks before school starts, and I feel like I haven't done ANYTHING.

Okay, I know I went to Mexico at the beginning of the summer. So that's something. But what about all that writing and submitting I told myself I was gonna do? What about all those walks to the park with my kids or steamy afternoons spent at the lake?

Sure we've done some of that, but not nearly as much as I had planned on.

Blame it on the rain. There has been more than usual this summer.

Blame it on the gas prices. They have kept us home more.

I know the truth, though.

Summer was wasted away on LAZINESS. Late lazy mornings spent lounging liesurely like lumps of lard.

Tomorrow begins the last (full) week of summer break. I am going to make it memorable.


  1. I like your alliteration. :-)

    Go for it and make this summer memorable.

    Love you, friend!

  2. Oh I so know what you are talking about Becky. I feel this way every single summer too. I start off with the best of intentions "This summer will be different!" and it never is. It is always the same, lost bumping around as if blindfolded until I take off the blindfold the end of August only to say, "WHAT? Where did the time go? What did we do? We didn't do half the fun things we said we would!!"

    And yes, for us the gas prices have definitely stopped us from driving to the ocean or up to the mountains... at least I still have a good 4 weeks left. (Sorry. Was that a bit like pouring lemon juice into your paper cut???)


I would love to hear from you!
