Today is my last day of summer. It makes me so sad! I do like my job, and I do want to work, just not full time. It is such a drag not to have time for anything or anyone but my job. It has been a very full summer. Marina went to Barcelona and attended Art camp. Celeste and I ran a pop-up at home. Fernando worked the first half of the summer. We went to LACMA, and the Norton and not to mention The Huntington Library. We all headed up to SLO and to Monterey; where we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Marina got to scuba dive! We had picnics in the park and metfriends for lunch. We went to bed late and woke up early. Marina read 10 books and did loads of math. It has been quite a fun and loaded summer. And now, it is over for me. The girls still have some time, which only brings me child care stress, but alas; my time is up. No more basking in the sun, no more coffee at 10am, no more reading magazines on a blanket at the park, no more lazy days, no more endless posibilities. Only structure, and hurried driving, and deadlines, and being pulled in different directions, and putting fires out, and difficult meetings and sad stories and discontent among parties, and weekly menus, and quick conversations, and "gotta go.
