Summer was always my favorite season as a kid. This winter was kinda rough and I was really looking forward to the warm weather. Now that summer is here, I'm not so sure why I like it so much. Maybe I should re-think my favorite season. Maybe I outgrew it.

I grew up in Michigan less than a mile from the beach. I also grew up with a swimming pool in my yard. I love the beach and I love swimming! Summer meant no school, spending time by the pool or at the beach, and spending endless hours on the phone with friends.

I no longer spend endless hours on the phone because I have to pay for that time and I don't really have endless hours to spend on the phone. I also do not live very close at all to a beach. I have access to a pool but I really don't want to swim with the people of our apartment complex. Yuck. And, being a nanny, no school still means work, that means having both kids everyday all day and it means that the places we go to will be more crowded. I'm looking forward to going to the zoo but I know that it is going to be, well, a zoo.

Another thing that I am not really liking about this summer, the heat! I love the sun, it makes me happy, but I don't want to sweat just standing in the shade! It's only May! Also, I live in a third floor apartment with only an ac unit in the living room. It hasn't cooled down enough at night to sleep comfortably in the bedroom. Last night I actually slept in bed but it was one of the worst nights of sleep I've had in a while. The two nights before that, Rob and I slept on the air mattress in the living room. It wasn't great sleep, but it was cool and much better than last night. I also dread seeing the electric bill after having that thing run almost nonstop. Ugh!

I'm ready for fall!
