SUMMER BREAK

 
Summertime.
 
I love the weather, the beach, the social scene, ice-cream trucks, the swim club, movies, miniature golf and barbeques. However, every year I find myself frustrated with the disruptions summer brings. School is out, the kids’ schedules vary from week to week and there are more demands on my time than during the rest of the year. We cram as many outdoor activities as possible into each day. After all you can’t enjoy swimming, beach trips, amusement parks, summer holidays and tennis camps during the other seasons.
 
This summer, instead of lamenting that summer is interrupting my writing, I have given myself permission to rejoice in the mayhem summer wreaks on my routine. I may not be writing every day and my writing sessions may be a lot shorter, but I am still writing. And as my smart writing buddy reminded me, the kids are only little for a short time, so enjoy the summer with them. So I am slotting my writing into the time available and refusing to get cranky about that. It is the summer, after all.

I love those things too, except I don't think I have a social scene!

My "social scene" consists of my neighbors and friends hanging out at the pool and chit chatting with the occasional "event" like the Adult Social. Not as glamorous as it sounds but definitely more lively than winter's "social scene".
