Hello there, friend,

It's hard to believe that your summer will be starting in a few short weeks. The school year here doesn't end until the last week of June. Actually, this year it ends on my husband's and my tenth wedding anniversary. We had hoped to get away for a few days, but we will have to push it into July, which is fine by me. We haven't taken a trip alone in seven years.

The weather here has alternated between sweltering humidity and record highs, and frost advisories in one week's time. We put the air conditioners in the bedroom windows over the weekend, then put them away yesterday and pulled out the warm blankets. Every spring we talk about how weird the weather is, but the truth is this year isn't any different than other years. We're just adjusting and resisting adjusting, like with everything else.
