Unwanted Guest

I have a confession. We have had a visitor for the past two weeks and I have been feeling loads of resentment by his early arrival. He wasn't supposed to be here until June. It's like he just came in and invaded my whole world. House. Yard. Car. (Pretty sad to admit that is my whole world- house, yard, car. Small world.)

But, in the past couple of days, we have had a little relief from him as he has taken a short vacation away from us. I expect him to return in the next couple of days- with all his baggage- and I have decided to embrace him. Because, when he returns, it means that I will have to accept that summer is here. It means I have my kids all to myself for TWO WHOLE MONTHS!!! And I love having my kids close.

So, when that triple digit temperature man returns, I will accept that he is here to stay. And we will swim. And eat popsicles. And sit in front of the fan. And crank the a/c in the car to MAX. And drink cold, cold drinks. ALL THE TIME.

And perhaps we will watch a few movies. And color. And blow bubbles. And turn on the sprinklers and take a few passes through them. And do crafts. And take naps. And read stories. And build forts. And ride bikes when the sun goes down. And clean the house a little. But only a little. Because summer only comes once a year.

And, ready or not, here he comes.

The small world comment made me smile. Its amazing how small all our worlds are. I love my small little world. I too am not ready for summer (mostly because of the need for bathing suits and a body that fits into one). But you're right...I'll embrace it. Its only once a year.

Amen! Triple digits are still a few weeks away for us, thank goodness, but summer is coming anyway.

Don't you just love how we're SOOO ready for school to be out and have the summer and then SOOO ready for them to go back in the fall?

Oh- and we just bought an ice shaver (got a steal on it) so we'll be doing those extra yummy snowcones all summer. It shaves the ice so fine you can make snowballs with it. Hopefully that will keep our kids cool (and making a profit on their little snow cone stand) all summer.
