I love my daughter, but…

… right about now I am counting the days until school starts again.

      • Oh? That soon? You’re almost there!! When I was in school we didn’t start until the end of August. Our first week sometimes was only 4 days, or the second week was, because of Labor Day at the beginning of September. Was a nice way to transition back into the routine.

            Desert living. It’s freezing outside in the winter, and boiling in the summer… neither is ideal. In fact, I think AZ only really has, what, one month?, of good weather. April, I think. Right?
            I grew up in the desert, and never had a problem running wild outside in the summer. I had thicker skin then and would go barefoot on the blacktop, even on the days that hit 115.

            There have been years when I froze my patootie off in the winter, but it’s been a while. We never turned the heat on once all last winter.

          • Wow!! That sounds pretty nice.
            Then again, I haven’t turned on the heater in over a year either. And, we don’t even have an air conditioner. Ah, those lovely evening shore breezes rolling in from the Pacific. Go ahead, be jealous. And, I’ll be jealous of your slightly more affordable housing. And we’ll call it a draw.

            The Queen and I have been mulling over places recently too… with CO always seeming to top the list. But, we may never leave… the beaches, the mountains, the weather… CA is hard to beat.

            What I do know, is that I will never live in the desert again.

            Eh, who knows? We still have a couple of years to figure it out.
