But I know some of you think I have.
It's hot. I'm hibernating. The record temperatures and drought have driven me inside. And I'm not coming out until it's over. I'm taking this opportunity to catch up on my reading. I don't even venture outside to check the mail until after dark.
School starts two weeks from today. If it had started today, it couldn't have been soon enough. By the calendar, this was a short summer. However, it feels like the longest summer of my life. My kids can't get along for two minutes.
I'm not kidding. It's been that bad.
My patience is long gone.
Any sadness I had at my youngest going off to kindergarten has vanished. This summer has cured me of any sentimentalities I may have had.
I've got their backpacks full of school supplies sitting by the door. I'm ready. It's beyond time.
