It’s that time of year again, when summer turns to fall. As I look back with fondness on this past summer, I can say with confidence that I did it all.
Camping? In a comfortable cabin of course.
Biking? With the kids to Dairy Queen no less!
Swimming? Lots and lots of swimming.
Family vacation? To Traverse City, Michigan. It was great!
So when ProFlowers offered me a summertime bouquet along with the inspiration to reminisce about something I wished I did this summer, but didn’t, I drew a blank.
You see, if there is one thing I wished I did this summer, but didn’t, it would be this:
I wish I had driven to work more often.
That doesn’t make sense! you think.
Let me explain.
I work for a large University with thousands of students. They get in my way every September to May, driving their parents’ cars and taking selfies, as well as every last parking spot. When it’s the academic year, my commute to work looks like this:In the summer, though, the students go back to where they came from. Suddenly, my commute looks like this:Thus, if there was one thing I should have done this summer, but didn’t, it would be drive to work footloose and fancy free more often.
Before I get too worked up about the harsh reality of my commute, though, I’m going to take time to stop and smell and the summer flowers.
Is there anything you wished you had time for, but didn’t, this summer? Can you believe it’s Fall? What are you looking forward to this Autumn?
I was given a bouquet from ProFlowers in exchange for a post about #SavingSummer: something you wish you did this summer, but for whatever reason you just didn’t have time for.
