Dreading the next three months!
I am really not a "summer" person. I need my routine. I need each day to reflect each yesterday. I need a rhythm. Summer does not allow these things. And I feel like an ogre when I demand a routine for each day during this season. For nine months out of the year I know when to get the kids up, what we will be doing in the morning, when lunch will begin, how the afternoon will unfold and when to tuck in the little nippers for their sweet dreams. All I get when I ask for the same from June to August is, "But mom...it's summer vacation!!!!"
I'm not a summer person temperature-wise either. I live in the midwest - the sweaty, humid, like-a-oven, midwest. I wilt. Almost literally during this season. I am dreading August.
Did you hear that??? It's the world's smallest violin playing My Heart Bleeds. I think I'd like some cheese with my whine!
