What Time Is It?


I love summer! It's my favorite season of the year! Warm sunshine, picnics, bonfires, swimming pools, staying up late, and sleeping in.

Here's a Top Ten List of the things I love about summer:

 No more backpacks to try and get through before the kids empty them out, leaving the house to look like the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

No more mad dashes looking for shoes when it's TIME TO GO!

No more kids coming down the stairs after they should have been sleeping for an hour saying, "I forgot I had homework today."

No more stressing that the kids should be fast asleep, but instead, they sound like they're practicing to be a part of the marching band.

No more setting alarm clocks.

No more waking up to the annoying and ridiculously loud beeping of said alarm clocks.

No more laying clothes out before going to bed.

No more hearing Abby whine, "I don't want to wear that stinkin' shirt!"

No more missing out on my kids' days.

And for the #1 reason I love summer...

No more laundry loads of just socks!!!!!

OK, so #2  is really #1, and #5, 6 and 7 are really #2, 3, and 4, but you get my drift.

And just for fun and good times, here's a mathematical equation:

2 x 1 x 7 = 14
5 x 1 x 7 = 35
14 + 35 = 49
49 x 2 = 98

So, in one week, my family (not including me, because I only wear socks in the winter) goes through 49 pairs of socks. That means I have to wash 98 individual socks every week.

Yeah, I think summer is worth celebrating.

(our 'celebration' pics will come later :) )
