I guess because school got out so late this year, and the weather hasn't been hot (we're in jackets a good part of the time, which is unheard of this time of year) things seem 'off' like summer hasn't really arrived yet. In reality, summer is half way over.
We're making the most of our time, but it's unstructured time this year. It's the first summer we haven't had a bunch of plans, and we're sticking close to home.
To add to that, our church schedule has changed for the summer (even the service times are different), there are no Sunday School activities for the kids, and they quit hosting Vacation Bible School, so that feels 'off' too.
My daughter is in Florida, and it's weird not having her here (I don't like it). It feels like something is missing, but in reality it's someone who is missing. Her brother notices her absence too. Again, I repeat I don't like it. I miss my baby girl in the house, teen attitude and all. ;)
I don't know what I'm saying, I guess I'm just saying it's an odd summer, and summer's are usually so predictable (I like predictable).
I've stepped out of my comfort zone and have a huge interview today. I haven't been in a traditional work place for almost 7 years (once uheard of too since I've worked my whole life). It feels exciting, but odd. I guess it's just the summer of change. Change is good, I know...without it things would get stagnate, but so many subtle changes at the same time feels strange.
In any case, wishing you a happy Friday, and a happy rest of the summer. I hope you're making the very most of it. Even though it's 'different' for us this year, I still know to make the most of every moment, and it's still my favorite season of the year.
