Summer doesn't end until Sept 20

One of the best things about becoming an adult has been that the summer no longer ends when school starts. Which in my part of the universe is mid-August. One of the worst parts about no longer being a student though? No Spring Break.

I'm serious, thank goodness f.b was still for kids when I first got out of college. I graduated in December and went to work at my first real full-time career job at the beginning of February. And then March hit and everybody was out for Spring Break and I had no vacation for the first year of employment. Fortunately for me, I had 13 bank holidays + a birthday holiday. I also took a couple days unpaid that first summer near my birthday. It was worth it and come to think of it, I don't think my boss docked me those days.

But now that I'm a stay-at-home wife & freelancer... all my days run together. And for me, the summer doesn't end until the temps drop below 70. Which in my town isn't until November. But I will say that more of you are reading! I had a bit of a summer lull and while *someone* read my little corner of the internets everyday, some days you were a lone reader. Except that that probably isn't true because Go.ogle An.alytics doesn't take into account those "readers" I am on. I don't write for an audience much, but I do try to keep in mind that this isn't just my journal and therefore try and maintain some sort of interest.


  1. I read you in Google reader and often come back later, when I have time to comment. I love your writing!!! xo

  2. I read you through google reader as well. That sounds nice to have summer last so long :)
