Where Has the Summer Gone

August 10, 2016

Is it just me or did this summer fly by? It seems like just yesterday, Raven was finishing up her last year as a freshman and college and now, in only a few short days, classes for her sophomore year of college will begin. The older I get, the more it feels like time is speeding up. Hours feel like minutes and minutes feel like seconds. I guess that’s just one of the many downsides of getting older.


I’ve only gone swimming once this summer and, come to think of it, I’ve only gone to the Farmers Market once. Though I hope that changes soon ’cause I love the water and need to support our local farmers more. But with us being down to only one vehicle at the moment (both mine and Raven’s cars are out of commission for the moment) it’s kinda difficult sharing 1 car between 3 people, especially when the husband works 10+ hours a day with an erratic schedule. But, God willing, we will have another vehicle soon.

What about y’all? How has your summer been? Do anything exciting?

    I feel like after children life seriously just flies by in the blink of an eye. It still feels like Dallie should just be a baby. I know it will only be a matter of time before she’s in Kindergarten and then Middle School, etc. Ugh! It’s incredibly bittersweet. I can’t believe Raven is already in college! It seems like just yesterday she was still a kid! You were posting pictures of her on forums! Why must we grow older?! 🙁

    My summer has consisted of working, friends and family. That’s about it. That’s what my life consists of every season. LOL. I’m pretty routine, I suppose. I’ve been trying to be more social this summer though and it’s felt really nice. Dallie has enjoyed spending time with our best friends kiddos so it’s a win win. I’m really good at hibernating and shutting everyone out. So, working on that!

    My summer is gone and I’m back at school! Where has it all gone? I don’t know! I’m sad it’s gone but at the same time, I’m glad because I love college~

    Don’t worry, it’s not just you, this summer has FLOWN by. I’m not happy about it either lol. We had very shitty weather here in Calgary and so I didn’t get to enjoy true summer days outside. It was sad. I am hoping that the coming winter won’t be even more crappy and we will be able to do more than just sit inside.
