Mr. Incredible empathizes with the messy transition from spring activity to summer ease.

While highly and happily anticipated, making the transition from spring to summer is never easy. There’s something rough and tumble about leaving behind our busiest season. We’re all wrapped up in baseball, yet it feels like we’re at the end of a marathon. We’re realizing how exhausted we are and how much we sacrificed in order to run the race well.

At the beginning of spring we were at the top of our game. Work in order. Studies in order. Practice in order. House in order. Schedule in order. Health in order. Now I feel like a deflated Mr. Incredible.

No matter how many times you save the world, it always manages to get back in jeopardy again. Sometimes I just want it to stay saved! You know, for a little bit? I feel like the maid; I just cleaned up this mess! Can we keep it clean for… for ten minutes! ~ Mr. Incredible

Can we keep our lives in order for…for one spring! No. Simply no.

Dig deep. Finish strong. The finish line is in sight. I can see it! Can you?

Which season is your busiest? Do you transition from spring to summer easily? What are you looking forward to this summer?

  1. It seems all my seasons are equally busy, but I probably get less work done in the summer. The kids are around, and the weather is nice, and work becomes much less fun. But it still needs to get done. Sigh.

  2. Hmmmm. I don’t really have a busy season. But I know people who have kids and they seem busy all the time. I always get more done in the summer here because the daylight can last til nearly midnight and I get less done in the winter because we get only about seven hours of daylight.

    • Busy is a relative term 😀 With that big a difference in sunlight hours, I can only imagine how different your winter and summer look. Your summer seems to be the winner in my mind as far as getting things done and being warm! But I do miss cold nights and being cozy at home during the winter. The closest for me is August when I’ll move from one air conditioned situation to the next.

  3. I have loved Summer for nearly all of my life (I turn 40 this year). That is, until the past few years or so. I think the Pacific Northwest spoiled me, and I think I’m happy about it! I lived in Northern Idaho for about years and I lived that there was hardly any humidity… It was wonderful! Now that I’m back in West Virginia I have grown to very much dislike Summer because of the intense humidity, that has always been here (and in Virginia where I grew up), and I got very easily used to not having. That’s not to say I love Winter — Oh, I most certainly do *NOT* love that! If I could have Spring and Fall temperatures all year ’round, I could deal with that! Sign me up! What I do love about Summer — it isn’t Winter!

    • I’m with you about preferring low humidity! The Arizona desert is dry, dry, dry compared to NE Pennsylvania where I was raised. We’ll have humidity here during monsoon, but that’s nothing compared to constant thick east coast humidity. Stay cool, stay dry, jenny 😀

    • LOL! Scott, when my children were little and we lived in Elko NV…I can recall refusing to go out during the winter because I simply couldn’t face dressing all those bodies! Who needs to go to the store for food? Not us 😉 Enjoy your summer 😀

  4. “Summertime…and the livin’ is easy ” Spring will take you down, yard work, sports, school activities,sentimental holidays, proms, graduations..yikes. I hate the heat, but I embrace the ease of summer.

    I learned my lesson when we lived in the South, where you’d work up a sweat just going to the mailbox. We were lucky to have a community pool, and we lived there…getting home just in time for the daily thunderstorm, picking up a pizza or 2, and falling asleep exhausted. I let a lot of things go…housework, cooking, dressing up, wearing makeup. It was glorious !! Some of the best bonding years for friends and family, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. ☺ Van

  5. When it comes to work, I would say winter and the end of spring. Winter for the snow removal and maintaining the floors at the schools I work, and spring for all of the end of year programs (set up, take down, etc.) summers are a change of pace for me. Thanks, Angie! 🙂

  6. All are busy for me. I tried to think of a less busy one, but came up with a ton of reasons why it wasn’t. LOL. And to think my kids are all raised and on their own, I should be less busy.

    • Michelle, I wonder if I kid myself each season. While I’m in it, *that’s* the season that feels busiest, lol! But, honestly, spring is objectively the season where the schedule of others impact my schedule most. And I’m sure I will never be willingly less…full. We’re not busy as much as choosing a full life, right?!
