Bring on Summer

I am ready for summer.  I am ready for the warm weather, bright skies, longer days, and just plain being out of winter.  This winter has not been good to us, as you know, and I am ready to put it behind us and move on.  I used to love winter months but that has changed.  I now crave the months of less sickness and more play.  Being stuck inside for the past few weeks has me a bit stir crazy, to be honest.

So, what do I do with my mind that only wants warm weather?  I think about all that I will do once it finally arrives.  I am not crazy… I don’t share all my thoughts with my kids.  Do you have any idea what would happen if I did that?

“Mom, when are we going swimming?”

“Mom, when is school out?”

“Mom, when is vacation bible school?”


Very quickly I would end up in the bathroom hiding brushing my teeth.  Um, yeah.  Anyway, so this is what I am thinking.  All my kids need new swim clothes this year.  I, too, will need new swim clothes but I am losing weight (go ahead and clap, I’ll wait) and don’t want to purchase anything for myself yet.  But, my kids have all recently gone through a growth spurt and I think it would be okay to start looking for them.

I did all my usual searches, all the local spots and then hit online.  I checked out online stores like and saw all that is available this year.  I must say that the selection is great.  My girls will be the most fun to buy for again.  Now, we did get rid of our pool a few years ago but we do still go swimming so I think I will get some pool toys this year too.  I am going to sit down with the kids… scratch that… I am going to make some decisions and start planning our summer months now.

I plan on doing it right… because, darn it, we deserve it!
