Things I Will Miss About Summer

Today marks my last day of summer.  This day always makes me a little sad.  And while most of my posts next week will be focused on school, I wanted to take a little time today to make a list of things I will miss about at summer.
  • No more summer days in the pool with Amber.  You can see why this would be so disappointing.  We laugh and and float and eat and coat ourselves in so much suncreen (and somehow still get burned, from time to time).  It's easily the most relaxing part of my summer.
  • No more doing random stuff in the middle of the day.  Need to make a WalMart run?  Have a craving for a Blizzard?  It's so nice to just go instead of having to wait until the bell rings.
  • No more staying up late because I know I can sleep in.  Even if sleeping in is just 8:00 AM, it's a lot better than 5:30.  (Just typing that hurts my heart a little.)  I have also perfected the lounge this summer.  Breakfast in bed watching Gilmore Girls beats the heck out of putting on my grown-up clothes and going to work.
  • No more going over to my parents' any night of the week to watch TV and hang out.  Dinner and TV isn't the same when you have to get home to put in grades and get to bed.
The good news is that it also means no more sweltering days, the start of fall baseball, and getting back to into a routine with my students and in my life.  Despite all my whining, I'm ready.  Bring it on, Fall!


  1. I hope you have a GREAT school year.
    I heart anyone who appreciates The Gilmore Girls. :)

  2. Thanks, Mindee! I'm always excited to know another Gilmore Girls fan! I have them all on DVD and reference episodes on a fairly regular basis. I'm a nerd that way! ;)
