Today, I took the boys for a playdate at the park. At one point during our visit I was quite certain that I left the playground entirely and entered one of The Nine Circles of Hell from Dante's Inferno. Yeah, it was THAT HOT. One nice thing about the park is that it has a great bike/walking path and a beautiful lake with a manmade stone creek that the kids can walk in all the way down to the lake. But the heat...OHHH THE HEAT! :)
When it's hot like this, I can't help but think about the women who used to have to wear the corsets and the petticoats and the big bustling skirts...and NO AIR-CONDITIONING! THOSE POOR WOMEN! How Scarlett O'Hara didn't just keel over and die in Gone With the Wind is a mystery to me.
So I know you'll be shocked, but I think I'm ready for summer to come to a close. I'm ready for the cooler temperatures that come with the fall. I'm ready for my boys to be in preschool (3 mornings a week) and to have some time back to myself, even though I feel guilty for saying it. I'm looking forward to dressing the kids up for Halloween, and having all the family together for Thanksgiving.
What's your favorite season?
