Good-bye Summer!


~10:00 a.m. wake-up calls
~Going to sleep past midnight (usually us, sometimes even the kids)
~Monopoly Jr. games at 10:00 p.m. (what bedtime?)
~"What do you want to do today?"
~"Is it good beach weather today?"
~"We gotta do laundry for the next road trip..."
~Hanging out with my girls (and their kids) on a weekday afternoon
~Middle-of-the-day, middle-of-the-week art classes (for the kids)
~Middle-of-the-day, middle-of-the-week any activity (for the kids)
~Babysitting nights Every. Single. Week. (for Us)
~Wine on a Monday night
~And a Tuesday night
~Maybe a Wednesday too
~Stress-free Sunday nights
~"What day of the week is it?"
~Middle-of-the-day spontaneous gym visits
~Consistent conversations with Hubby all the time
~No need for "scheduling sex in"
~Tour de France on DVR
~Olympics on DVR
~Family Movie Night any night
~Flip flops 24/7 (what stilettos?)
~No routine, no schedule, no stress
~"Summer Liz" (the much-nicer-to-live-with version)

Perhaps I should keep that last one in mind?


  1. This is the exact post I couldhave written a few weeks ago! And yes...I am a much nicer Momma/Wife/Citizen of the world in the summer.
    Hope you are well?

  2. Hope you are surviving the Back to School insanity! xo
