Summer run

Summer, I thought was a time to reenergize, relax, catch up with friends and maybe even read books under lazy sunny days. Well I’ll tell you one thing, not for me, do I have time to get re-energize, and if I tried to relax then I’d fall asleep, and I can’t even read a magazine, so I have to say it…the truth. The truth is once you have kids summer is all about them since they aren’t St school all day it is my job to find & schedule the fun, oh and pack up, get the kids ready and attend these activities with them while making sure they are staying hydrated and protected from the sun and fed. I don’t want to sound like summer isn’t fun, but it surely isn’t relaxing. I love the beach and the pool and the lake and our kitty pool but one of these days it has to be my turn to float around on a mat and daydream about the hot summer day. Or not. I will do it all smiling and having fun, and know that I am making some life long memories for my kids just like my parents did for me. It is my turn and I will do it with drink in hand, or until they go back to school again.

  1. It gets better when they get older. Just last Saturday we took a walk on the beach as a couple for the first time after many years and remembered how hypervigilant we had to be when the kids were young.

  2. Time sure does fly, and I miss all of the stuff I was able to do with my kids when they were younger. They are more and more independaent of me every day and it sometimes hurts! Enjoy every second of it! As for us, today we are going on a much needed family picnic and I won’t take no for an answer!

    1. Yes, I’ve heard…sometimes in the middle of it I feel like I am in a fog, but do try to enjoy it at the same time. Most of the time, it’s great, but there are days!!! Thanks & hope you enjoyed your picnic!
