My Summer, Thing 1 & Thing 2

Would someone pah-leese tell me where in the Sam Hill my summer went? One minute I was sitting by the pool drinking lemonade and eating chips. The next minute I'm standing in my closet getting all misty eyed trying to figure out what not to wear.

I had all these big plans for the summer. Things like organizing my files for the school year. Things like organizing stuff in my house. Things like losing 500 pounds. Things like… Well, you get the picture.

Apparently, this is a reoccurring problem of mine as I wrote about this exact same thing on August 9 of last year. That post (which begged for a summer do-over) was pretty funny. (OK, so I'm easily amused.) Now, I'm just pathetic.

So once again one year later, I'm sitting here pondering all the things I need to be doing. In fact, for inspiration I even got out Thing 1 and Thing 2. (And, no I'm not kidding either.) All they want to do, though, is get me in trouble.

So once again I head back to school without much to show for my summer. At least when I get there, I'll take a peek at my "things that will get you fired" folder and hope things run just a tad bit more smoothly this year.

And speaking of things, I bet Thing 1 & Thing 2 had something to do with the thieving of my summer.

I have one week to be better organized for publications next year. My other classes are fine, but the flying I do by the seat of my pants on the yearbook and newspaper is nothing short of miraculous. Of course, I also have stuff from The Great Garage Clean-Out to put away and 20 lbs of peaches to deal with. The peaches will expire in a few days, so pubs will be pushed back AGAIN this summer. Who am I kidding? It's not getting done... Cheers to Thing 1 and Thing 2!
