I'm always excited for the summer season: the warm weather, break from school, getting organized, being lazy. Summer never seems to work that way. I look at summer as a time to relax, but we're always busier now than during the school year. Play dates with friends, sports, and activities for the kids take up the majority of time. I look outside and see a multitude of tasks that need to be completed before winter. My schedule is filled with Westernaire activities and prep for football. I feel guilty sitting down with a good book, basking in the sun; while laundry needs to be done and the house needs a good scrubbing. I know some of these things can wait, but I can't help thinking of summer as a time to take back control of the house and yard. Maybe someday I'll learn to relax!
