Well, summer is upon us finally. Most things about summer are great, but there are a couple of things about summer that annoy.

First, it's light outside for way too long. This is only a problem because I have small children. It's easy during the winter to say "Hey kids, I know it's only 6:00, but you can't tell time, and it's dark outside. That means it's time for bed." But during the summer, it gets to be the kids' bedtime and it's still light outside. We have to go through this whole charade every night of convincing the kids that it really is time for bed, even though the sun is still out. If I didn't have kids it would be fine, but the sun kind of annoys me during the summer right now. But hey, at least it's not cold outside or anything.

The second thing is there's nothing good on TV. Maybe I shouldn't be such a stinking couch potato, but what else am I going to do, read a book? Ha! The last week of the season every show is pulling out all the stops to try to have a great finale. And a lot of them do. But then you're left for 4 months wondering what is going to happen next. Some shows don't even come back until January (dang you 24!!!) So, that leaves me, Mr. Couch Potato, having to do stuff like play with my kids and talk about my day at dinner time. That's just insane.

But other than those minor a petty grievances, summer is pretty cool. I think this weekend I'll sit outside for 5 minutes and get sun burnt. Good times.
