And just like that…my summer has arrived!!
Is your summer here too?
We all have a set point for when summer begins and it’s not just a date on the calendar. It may be when school is out for the kids, the day you leave town on that hard earned summer vacation, or the first splash in the pool. My summer started last Friday…and I couldn’t be more ready.
It was such a profound shift in schedule–from daily commute, timelines, meetings, to do lists–that I almost didn’t know what to do with myself the first couple of days. I shut my office door, from my life as a school psychologist, and I won’t be back for 8 weeks. Scott has been gone at a conference this week and I’ve had some good quiet time to myself. I do think it’s true that absence makes the heart grow fonder, especially when you have time to yourself. Last year he and I attended this life changing conference together, so I decided to drive down to Sacramento to join him, and other friends and colleagues, for a night. I guess that’s proof about the heart growing fonder.
I also made a lunch date with my best friend from 4th grade, Deb. We worked in both an Italian lunch at Lucca, and a dessert bar, Rick’s Dessert Diner. We are definitely a good influence on each other as we kick off summer! ;). On my way home I enjoyed an afternoon with my mom and family. I’d say summer is off to a great start.
This Sunday is Father’s Day.
To all you dads out there–Happy Father’s Day!!
To those of us missing our dads, like I am, hugs to you today.
To Scott, an amazing dad to his girls…..
Happy Father’s Day, my love.
How about you?
