I got my first job at 14. I worked for a balloon company making fun little balloon bouquets. I felt very important. I've been working every year since then. I worked part-time during high school, part-time during the college school year, full-time every college summer. Basically I haven't had a summer off since I was 13. Until this year.
This year I'm unemployed with a baby all my own. We have been here, there and everywhere. We've been to So Cal, the Bay Area and just about every corner of our hometown. And I'm loving it.
I told my hubby the other day that I fully intended to take full advantage of this summer. When will I ever have the chance again to just hang out with my friends, cuddle with my boy, work on my tan, take a nap in the middle of the day and visit my friends and family? Probably never again I'm thinking.
So I'm going to enjoy this summer. I'm going to soak up the sun and teach my boy to the love the water. I'm going to spend leisurely days laughing with my friends and talking about absolutely nothing. And I'm going to have lots of family dinners. This might be my most favorite summer ever.
