The summer is passing while I sleep. Before long, it will seem like a short dream that's hard to remember. Sleep doesn't cling to me in the mornings quite the way it does in the winter, and some days go by in a drowsy blur.
Still, this will be the important summer during which Ekim's best friend (since fourth grade) received a kidney transplant and the hope of a better life.
It's the first summer in about a decade in which I will be home for my birthday, instead of in Sea Isle City; the nieces with whom we visit there are growing up, and we always knew life would change.
And that means I get to pick out my birthday dinner from a larger array of restaurants.
Dddragon's daughters will be attending the Harry Potter Midnight Bash on their 17th birthday! How cool is that?
It's the summer my mother taught me how to make bruschetta and it was delicious. We made five times the recipe to take on a riverboat social event, and we had a lovely night for it.
As of today, it's 50 days until I'm off work for our Mexican vacation in September. I live for vacations.
And I need to get up early tomorrow. I've got two 10-hour workdays ahead of me, I'm afraid, but the weekend is coming....
I'll try to see beautiful scenes in the boredom.
