I love summer vacation. The part of the year when time has no meaning. I relinquish early wake ups and packed lunches of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lazy swimming days and roasting hot dogs over an open fire. We stay up late and get up late. There is a certain sweetness in the air. Freedom.
Of course, my freedom is marred somewhat in my obsession to do those once a year chores. Wash the windows. Clean out the closets. Organize my file cabinet. Maybe they should be more than once a year chores. But who am I kidding? I'm lucky if they get done once a year.
The first week off is always dedicated to these must do activities. I can't wait to cross them off my list and dive into the real summer activities. Swimming. Writing. Playing. Eating ice cream.
Oh yes, that's my summer schedule. How about you?
