Summertime, and the Livin's Easy
Or is it? Some of us have to work (and YES, being a stay at home mom IS work, people!), and even when we're not working, many of us feel like a fast forward button has been pushed, because we seem to be speeding through the days with so many engagements and activities. That's how I feel at times during the summer months.
Don't mistake me, I LOVE summer. I love everything about it. The smell of campfire, sounds of boat engines as they're cruising around the lake, motorcycles, fireflies, swimming, and yes-the constant plans, weddings, birthday parties and family reunions. I love it all. My only issue is that it feels like summer has just begun, and now it's almost August.
Summer flies far too quickly for my taste. I guess it's true what they say around these parts-we have two seasons: Winter, and getting ready for Winter!
What about you?
Are you having a slow, relaxing summer or are you like me with your schedule filled up with things to do every weekend? Whichever way it is, do you prefer it that way?
