Although the first day of the season is the Summer Solstice, it officially begins with an 11am dismissal and doesn't stop until the first day of school. My boys and I hit the ground running on Monday morning..more like sprinting. I just completed day 2 of our summer and I am ready for a back-up mom to come in for a few rounds. With everyone home all day, the food prep is intensified, the dishwasher runs on overdrive and those little treasured moments I had to myself vanish. Admittedly, it does take some time to wrap my head around the reality that I will be playing tour guide, camp counselor, and referee for two insanely active boys.
I will be filling that role for 10 weeks. Yet, all my other duties remain. How do I forget from year to year that I will have no time to grocery shop? No time to do the laundry or return a phone call in peace. Workouts get moved to 6am and the constant question remains (yet for some reason is insanely more difficult to answer). What is for dinner?!?
I do love (LOVE with a capital L) summer, so ready or not- we are in the thick of it. I just need to finish my post (which I find I am writing after 9pm every evening) and get ready for tomorrow. The meals, the snacks, tennis rackets, swim trunks, clean towels. I really should start a checklist, but that is way to organized for summer.
How are all of you adjusting to our season of fun in the sun?
