What did you do on your summer vacation?

Remember those days, back in school and your teacher and friends would ask that question? I always hated it myself because we never went anywhere.

Never never never.

My dad was always tied down to the Burger Chef and all those ownership responsibilities that come with having a store. I never flew on an airplane until I was 12 and that was an exciting trip to PENNSYLVANIA. (And what did I see on that trip-The Amish. I know know fun when I see it.) I am painfully aware of how bored I was over the summer because of our current¬† living arrangements in the same house I grew up in. I can see the boredom in my son’s face. It’s almost like reliving my past but older and more cynical and of course having a mini-boy version of me to mirror my emotions. The only thing bearable about living here was our pool. It was lovely and the saving grace, and now…it’s filled with dirt.

So what has happened this summer?

A very hot, buggy and l-o-n-g road trip to Dog Island. A short road trip to Cocoa Beach that always ends up being so nice and hard to leave. Thanks Cape Codder!¬† And lot’s of house fixer-upping. I had Lily Pad Forest up at CityArtsFactory for almost 2 months. And now work begins for some new projects.

And now I have to ask-What did you do over the summer?
