A couple of days ago I was at the grocery store, and the lady bagging the groceries made a comment about how it was finally warm outside, and how it was about time, seeing that it’s almost the Fourth of July.
That stunned me.
Just because we’re nearing the end of June, doesn’t mean we’re already at the Fourth of July, does it?
In my mind, the Fourth is the unofficial mid-point of summer. Summer vacation, that is. Of course, this year, due to unforeseen circumstances, we didn’t finish our homeschooling until June 13. We usually end before the month of May is over.
Our summer vacation is just getting going.
It made me want to grab the calendar and stomp on it until it slows down to a crawl, rather than the sprint it seems to be taking.
I’m sure spending my day fretting about it will solve everything and for once, summer in Maine will never end. I’m optimistic like that.

On a different note, I left a comment for all the great comments about our bathroom tile, but I thought I’d address it again here. I’m going to go with the lighter, wood-looking tile. After my hubby brought home more samples yesterday, my head began to spin. I told him just now that I’m going with the lighter tile and that if I had to prolong the decision for even another minute, I’d surely shoot myself.
Thank you for all the great input; it REALLY helped me. And I’m glad I don’t have to shoot myself.
