Here we go –headed into what I call the second holiday season..starting with May. While there are only two Federal holidays as we go into Summer- Memorial Day and 4th of July, May really kicks off the unspoken Frame of Time – known as obligation central.
May is filled with High School graduations, proms, college graduations and reunions
June is all about elementary and junior high graduations, weddings and vacations; and schools that end the school year in the middle of the week.. so you have to take two days vacation -since there are no Thursday/Friday camps available through your local parks and recreation center.
July is filled with vacations, summer camps, weddings, getting some sort of work done at your home/apt such as roof replacment, painting etc…Then you have more cookouts and reunions.
I think my husband and I have been requested to attend or help with some event for every weekend of the summer. Some of this we brought on ourselves.. but the rest is just called a ‘Happy and Busy’ Life..
Speaking of obligations- I gotta go and get my kid ready for bedtime! Phew.. I’m ready for a holiday.
