MY DAUGHTER GOES BACK TO SCHOOL TODAY!!!!
After 12ish (maybe 13) weeks of summer vacation, the school year is upon us. I love my daughter but thank god for school. I need a break from her. She needs a break from me. We need the routine of school. Everyone will be happier.
However, it’s important that we take the time to remember the summer that was. In vague statistics because math is terrible but it’s also the easiest way to break it down. The struggle is real, y’all.
So. The Summer of 2016. In numbers. And in no particular order.
Concerts attended–3. Well, this is sort of cheating because the last one is this Sunday.
Water parks visited–2. Not by me but by the child.
Beach trips–3. I love you, Cape Henlopen State Park
Baseball games attended-3. One minor league, one major league, one in a league not related to MLB (Long Island Ducks. They play in what appears to be a made up league).
Wineries visited–1. Glasses of wine consumed? Lost count.
Tubing trips–1. Never again. One is enough.
Sleepovers and playdates with friends–47? Around that.
TV Shows watched (by me)–4. Mr. Robot, The Night Of, Ray Donovan (binge), Stranger Things (binge)
TV Shows watched (by her)–Not really sure because I won’t let her watch TV with me anymore because fuck you, Teen Nick.
Books read: 21 (by me). 6 (by her).
Mosquito bites obtained–I can’t count that high.
S’mores consumed–I can’t count that high.
Things we didn’t get to do: Hershey Park, Adventure Aquarium, seeing the DC monuments and the Smithsonian, visiting Steph’s beach house. Thankfully there’s still the fall and we’ll be able to do all of this stuff then.
I feel like we really didn’t do a whole lot but I know we did more than what I listed here. Going to the movies, paint your own ceramics, visiting my parents and my in-laws, my husband’s and my trip to Phoenix, cheerleading stuff…I definitely don’t feel like we flittered the summer away but maybe also we did a bit because SO MUCH RAIN. Rain does not make me want to do things.
