Summertime, and the Blogging is...Harder

Today I wanted to do a post about a fun day I recently spent with my friend Alyson and our 4-year-old boys at a place that we all love, but my carefully planned week didn't work out, so I didn't have the time to put the post together. John got a bad case of poison ivy, couldn't go to preschool, and has needed much more of my time and attention than usual, and I've been really tired due to sleeping troubles that have cropped up again. Needless to say, I haven't been able to get very much done at all this week! This has led me to think about summer, when John will be home more, and about how life in general changes (often for the better!) in the summertime.

These are my summer plans: relax, read books, and spend good quality time with John and Peter and my friends and family. I also need to get some projects done before the baby arrives in September. We're going on two vacations: two weeks at Cape Cod, Massachusetts in August and a couple of days in the Bahamas in June. And I'm probably going to be fairly tired from the heat and the last trimester of my pregnancy this summer.

In short, I know I won't be able to do blogging as much, so I probably won't be posting as frequently and checking friend's blogs as often. If you're one of my blogging friends, don't worry, I'll still be visiting you because I really do enjoy reading your blogs, it just probably won't be as often during the summer months.

I hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend to kick off what to me is the best season of the year!

I think that blogging will go down for a lot of people during the summer, and I don't blame you!

Poison ivy is the worst. I find “Ivy Dry” works the best. Your summer plans sound blissful. Enjoy!

Sounds lovely! I love how life slows down in the summer. Once you have kids in school with homework and a mirade of activities, you'll see what I mean.

Hope to get to spend some time with you this summer! :)
