Summer Daze

I'm on Facebook. Sometimes I think that might be a mistake, but I go there, I check things, read about people I know, write down stuff. I see what others are sharing and it's mainly all the fun stuff. You know the water parks and vacations and things of that nature. And I'm over here thinking, "Well, we made it out of the house for groceries this week."
It's not that we've been awfully sick or busy, though those things have been occurring. It's just been a lazy kind of summer for us. I see it flashing by in other people's posts on Facebook and I think that maybe I should go do something fun with my little tribe. And instead we end up spending the day playing with Legos or watching way too many episodes of Good Mythical Morning or How It Should Have Ended. Quite honestly, I think this summer could have used a few more naps so far, but I've only got today to deal with.
I guess what I'm saying is that LOTS of things have been happening this summer, people have had babies, got new pets, learned out to drive, got wet in public pools, but for the most part, we've been doing nothing much. Just hanging out, not really taking advantage of the 90 degree and below weather. I haven't even been working in the yard. It overwhelmed me with its minutia this year, so I decided to let it become overgrown so that I could have a big project again.
Maybe summer isn't supposed to be all kinds of adventures and endless evenings on the deck. Maybe it's just supposed to be for us. Because honestly, that what's it's been, just a little bit of nothing on endless repeat. And I kind of like it.
