Summer Schmummer

I've read several blogs over the past few months about summer. How much they love summer. How they can't wait for summer's arrival. Lists about all the things that make summer their favorite season. All the fun things to do and places to go in the summer. The sadness they feel knowing the end of summer is not too far off. Well, not me. I hate summer. Least favorite month by far. So, here is my own list about summer.

Reasons I Dislike Summer:

*The heat - I don't like it when the temperature gets above 80 degrees. At least if I have to be outside. If it's cold out, you can always put on more clothes to be comfortable. If it's hot out, you can only take so much off before you get arrested or scare people out of their ever lovin' minds.

*The humidity - Humidity coupled with heat is a deadly combination. And here in Memphis they go hand in hand. Yucky and sticky.

*The bugs - I hate bugs. All kinds of bugs. In the summer, they are out in full force. In the south, there is only so much you can do to keep them away. They are everywhere and they are gross. And big. They could eat a small pet.

*Buying ice cream at the store - it melts before I get it home.

*Kids - They're everywhere. At the mall. At the grocery store. The restaurants. Target. The movies theaters.

*The School Schedule - Elise is still young enough that this doesn't affect me, but it does with several friends. Everything seems to come to a standstill until Fall.

*Trying to explain to Elise why she has to go to bed while it's still light outside

*Having Elise wake us up early because it's light outside

Well, that's my list. Feel free to add to it. Elise and I are heading up North for a while. I'm looking forward to escaping this Memphis heat! I will leave you with some pictures of someone who seems to be enjoying her summer.
