The Husband gets a little annoyed when I declare things over before they’ve really begun. My parents will tell you I’ve always been that way. I can still remember around five-years-old, when I declared to them that I was never going to get a driver’s license, go to high school, go to college, move out or get married. (Punchline: I guess I was destined to move back in with them at some point.)

But the point is I always see the finish line of a good time, looming in the distance, mocking and taunting me, daring me to have a good time. Overall, I’m a pretty optimistic person, a glass-half-full kinda gal. But as I’ve chronicled here many times, I often have to force myself to live in the moment.

I also have to stop myself from saying things like, “welllllll, summer is almost over!” or “wow, can you believe there are only 34 more days of summer vacation?” because I don’t want to pass on this particular quirk of mine.

So don’t tell the Hatchlings, but summer is half-full.

Run run Rudolph! Almost time for the #reindeerrun! I'm thinking after my mood this week, perhaps I should try this. #calm #magnesium #doesthisreallywork How excited do you think these kids are getting ready to be at pickup? #snow #ChathamNC #ncweather #ncwx One of my favorite holiday traditions is to shoot down mistletoe, but this year the kids are taking it to a whole new level! #Christmas #tradition #holidays #crafts #mistletoe
