The Summertime Blues

I hate the summer season for a variety of reasons. I’m not a fan of the heat, and not really a fan of air conditioning either. I usually spend the summer having to dress in layers so I can have a sweater in the A/C but a tank top outside.

This summer was especially un-fun for me since I was in class four days a week so I can finish my degree. So, I didn’t get to do a lot of fun things with my daughter. We didn’t go to the pool at all, or to the park much. Thankfully the two days a week she had to go to a sitter’s she got a lot of outdoor playtime.

I feel bad that I haven’t taken my daughter out to play more this summer but I get nervous because it is so hot. I live in the South, so we are used to hot summers, but I don’t remember a summer where it gets to be 90+ degrees nearly every day.

Now that we are in August, I’m just hoping the time flies. This is partly because Dragon*Con is now a month away. But it’s more because after Dragon*Con, it will be Autumn. I love Autumn, as it is my favorite season. And because I still do live in the South, it will be finally cool enough to be able to go to the park to play.

Do you like the summertime?
