It is nearing the end of summer and our family is a bit weathered. You can feel the energy slowly eeking, wearing us down.
- My kids seem tired. Too much playing? Too much fun?
- The flowers are spent. Too much blooming? Too much color?
- The car is filthy. Too many road trips? Too many activities? Too many snacks?
- My skin is weathered. Too much sun?
The community pool is now closed for the summer. Already. Drained. Empty. A drained pool is so depressing, I tweeted. My friend @RayChatie tweeted, “I love this tweet! In a simple fact it speaks of emptiness when once there was joy, the passage of time, memories of lost days.”
Time to rest up this week and re-energize because Fall is upon us. Next week: Labor Day. Bringing early morning schedules, school, homework, shuttling, deadlines, practices, commitments, appointments, kids’ sports, activities, meetings.
All the “have tos” that are Fall in a busy family.
Good-bye Summer. We will miss you.
