Trust me, I’m not complaining. Memorial Day weekend is always a welcome three days here at The Shore. But I will say this-it might be my least favorite time of year. This year was especially hard because the kids had Friday off. So we relaxed for four whole days, getting into full summer mode, just to wake up today and be slammed back into the real world.
We all overslept, covered our sunburned (oops) bodies with real clothes and placed excruciating back-pack straps on our shoulders. We all moped to the car and I watched as my two oldest skulked their way slowly indoors.
It’s going to be a long two weeks.
