It's that time of year again!

Yes it is time for my annual "Let's get grumpy because everyone is at home but me" extravaganza.

This is the one where I (not so quietly) pout because I must go to work while everyone else in my house is off for the summer.

I think what I need to do is start planning some huge grumpy and whiny themed party every year to mark this occasion. Think of the fun to be had. There could be contests and prizes. Everyone loves prizes!

It does not help that since I changed jobs recently I can not take any time off until my probationary period ends on August 13. Of course by then everyone is back or soon to be back at school. Ah well. This time next year I hopefully will have al kinds of vacation time.

I must pack all of my summer fun into evenings and weekends so I will need to be well organized. I should make a list of the fun activities I would like to do this summer.

Hmmm....maybe I will save that for another post.

I should get going, the bike and treadmill call. So does episode 3 in season one of House. Apparently watching TV series on DVD will make it on my list.

What do you want to do this summer?

Sleep. A lot.

Think of it less as you're missing out on fun at home... and more as "hey, there are more bodies at home. So more of my housework will be done before I get home for the evening!"

Help? Sorry, it wouldn't help for me, either.

They can only make it up to you by bringing lots of picnic lunches to work.
