My "weekend" (sort of) started on Thursday night when I hosted my bunco group. We were able to play out on the deck, drink sangria and laugh. The weather was warm enough and it stayed light. We finished around 9:00. That was some of the first signs of summeritis.
Friday I had to work, but it was a grading day, so we didn't have students and I got to GO to lunch. (sushi, by the way.) Friday night my husband and I had a little date night. Going out to lunch? Sitting outside doing paperwork? More signs of summeritis.
Saturday was when my symptoms started to get severe. I thought of something to help relieve some of my suffering. We woke up and packed a picnic lunch. I packed up my bright blue beach bag (which hasn't gotten a lot of use lately) and drove out to Pacific City. It was 83 at the Oregon coast. That is pretty much unheard of most of the time.Women were laying out in bathing suits, children were playing in the ocean. We ate our lunch, read, played in the surf, and just hung out.
Summeritis was in full force on Sunday. We invited friends over, grilled, and ate outside. I really don't think my summeritis will be cured anytime soon.
In other news, we start our last 6 week grading period today!
How was your weekend? Any tips for getting rid of summeritis? (Or at least how to deal with it while I am still at work)
