i’ve been a very bad blogger

Wednesday September 16, 2009

What can I say?  It is so true.  And don’t think I don’t feel guilty about it.

Because I do.

But this has been a summer that I actually enjoyed.  I went outside. I sat in my porch – in the morning, afternoon, and evening…for hours. I gardened. I went on walks. I BBQed. I made mojitos. I went to the State Fair. TWICE.  Oh yeah, and I watched TV. Reality TV like Top Chef. Daytime TV like The View. And Nighttime TV like David Letterman.

I used to despise. DESPISE.  summer. It was just way too hot for me.

Maybe because I used to. USED TO. drive to work in an air conditioned car and go to work in an air conditioned office.  I remember dreading the minutes I had to walk to my car. It’s not like I didn’t like being outside – it was just such a shock to my system.

Oh yeah, and I am not built for the heat.

I sweat. My face sweats. And gets red. It is very obvious that I am uncomfortable. And I don’t tan. I just turn red.

You should have seen me in Thailand. I was uncomfortably hot and burning ALL THE TIME.

Amanda was all like, “This is so great” and I was like, “This is so HOT.”

What I am trying to say is that I had a really great summer.

BUT I am looking forward to Fall.  Which will most likely include apple pie, pumpkin carving, raking leaves and hopefully a little more regular blogging.
