I really feel like summer just started here in the US but it is already the end of August and almost time for Football season to get into full swing. Don't get me wrong- I LOVE Fall!!!! It is my favorite time of the year. The colors, the smells, the sports, the crisp air in the mornings, pumpkin everything... I long for Fall but I feel that this year I was cheated this year by summer. Maybe it is the weather that did it with too many rainy summer days. Maybe it is the fact that I am commuting again and sitting in the airport all day long messes with your being... you don't know if it is morning, night, hot or cold outside. Or, maybe it really is true that the older you get, the quicker time seems to pass by.
With this whole week off of work and hanging out at home, I have tried to squeeze in my whole summer I somehow missed. Laying by the pool, snacking and a whole lot of reading. It has been relaxing and nice but it has also gotten me excited for my next adventure (or at least my next set of crazy stories from the air).
I am reminded that even when I have a bad day at work, miss being able to cook myself dinner each night or complain that I can't afford my own place just yet... that right now at this time in my life I am right where I should be. Because if I was not a Flight Attendant I would be sitting in an office building somewhere with yet another summer day slipping by me.
(and we all know that when you are a Flight Attendant and you find yourself wondering where the summer went, you can find it again- summer somewhere else is only a plane ride away).
