The ... ho-hum days of summer?
I'm in a group blog with some other authors, and we're supposed to take turns blogging every day about a topic I hand out on Sunday. Lately I've been the only one blogging. One or another of them blogs randomly, but it's mainly me blogging about my topic.
I don't mind, really. I can blog at the drop of the hat any time. But then something else made me notice this irregularity: I often dine with a group of ladies. We've dined on Wednesday, every other week, for years now. But lately it's getting hard to get people together. We're starting to become random diners. I'm hosting a party at my house later this month, and it'll be the first time we've gotten together in 2 or 3 months.
Now that's weird. What are the odds that 2 groups of friends are starting to drift? That made me think ... I wonder if it's a summer thing. In the summer, people tend to not stick to schedules. Things are busier, life is more flexible, kids are out of school, life is a bit more spontaneous. Do you think that's it?
I'll be curious to see what happens this fall when life gets back to 'normal'. Until then, I'll keep blogging & use those free dining days to meet with other friends. There's *always* someone to get caught up with!
