Where Did Summer Go?

September 13, 2010 - Jennifer Brookens

It never seems fair that even though winter and summer are about the same length calendar-wise, winter drags on forever while summer just zooms by.

My whole summer was spent running, running, running. I had plenty to do at all times: features, meetings and stories to cover. Then there were the many family outings, T-Ball and swimming lessons, and vacations.

And now it's all come to a screeching halt. I'm learning to get up early again, but even with having an hour to an hour and a half of earlier work time I'm still at a loss. For my overflowing "to-do" list has finally been dwindled down. While things will pick up again (they always do), that sense of dread kicks in knowing what comes next.

But I'm hoping this year that we'll have a long, extended fall, where I enjoy beautiful warm colors, watching some sports (finally got those tickets to Target Field my husband had been crying for all season!) and maybe - just maybe- not having to design Halloween costumes that need to fit over snowsuits!
