Summer And I Are Officially Married

I am in love with Summer - and I don't say that lightly. Polygamy has never appealed to me in the least bit, but when it involves Summer, I have to reconsider.

Summer and I were meant to be from the get go. Summer gives me freedom like I have never known. Summer lets me take long walks, lets me sleep in if I want, and lets me go to the gym during the slow hours. Summer doesn't care if I wash my hair, if I put on makeup, or if I even brush my teeth. Summer supports my late night habits and my disdain for the alarm clock. Summer doesn't make me speed pee each time I go to the bathroom, or scarf down my food. Summer lets me actually eat breakfast, go to the store when I feel like it, and spend time outside. When Summer and I are together, I feel normal. I feel good. I can breathe. I can think straight.

Before you feel sorry for My Babe, don't worry, we'll break up soon...too soon. August 14th to be exact. And, when that time comes, I will mourn the loss deeply. For now, I am officially married to Summer and lovin' every minute of it.

You are too cute! I can't wait until I marry Summer! I have 2 weeks and a day. :)

Sometimes I wish I had become a teacher so I could enjoy days like yours. Enjoy your summer!

I am jealous, as my summer doesn't start until June 26th and will be over mid-August as well.

But really, after 8 years of teaching I am 100% convinced that without summer I wouldn't have it in me to do the job.

What a fun way to look at summer! I can relate to much of what you have said. After 8 years of teaching I took this past year off (except for occasional subbing), so this summer I don't quite feel the love of summers past. Plus, it would be really hard to marry summer in Arizona. Maybe dating would be OK.

Oh boy do you teachers deserve your affair with summer! I know... I used to be one!!

Enjoy this time to yourself. I hope it is incredibly healing for you.

BTW, I tagged you for a meme. Play along if you want, or don't. It's really fine either way. :)

funny, i wrote my a/c post before reading this and the funny thing is that I really have a weird love affair w/ summer myself, though mine is more of a love/hate relationship, as you can see.

Happy to hear your marriage will be in full swing shortly. In the meanwhile, keep us NY'ers in mind as we sweat it out here in the NE, so unaccustomed to this heat, this early in the season!
