Those MomDotters are at it again…Small talk Six! On Saturdays.

Today’s topic is 6 things you’ll miss (or won’t miss) about summer“. You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc…

This is the time of year where I begin to get nostalgic. I am longing for fall and all the changes and promise it brings. Autumn and Winter are my favorite seasons. The changing leaves, the crisp days, the promise {or hope} of rain…all of it.I really can’t stand Summer, so this should be easy…

1) I will not miss the heat. Heat and I do not mix. We are like oil and water. And whoever tells you that a dry heat is better than a wet heat has never experienced 110 degree days in a house with no central air and no insulation.

2) I will not miss the bugs. All biting bugs seem to adore me…and now my daughter.

3) I will not miss not being able to have my windows open during the day. In the fall, or what passes for fall here in Southern California, I can open my windows in the middle of the day and hear…nothing. Beautiful silence with the exception of the birds chirping or the breeze rustling the trees.

4) I will not miss having to slather my very fair skinned daughter in sunblock 1 million several times a day.

5) I will not miss being unable to sleep because I am so bloody hot. I love cold weather. And rain. And cool, crisp mornings. Unfortunately, this means that the Santa Ana winds are on their way and that is not a good thing.

6) I will miss that this was my daughter’s last summer as my baby girl. She starts preschool on September 10th. Where did all the time go? As much as I know she needs to go to school and I need a break, I just don’t know how I can let her go! She is my baby and I will miss her for the whole three hours she is gone each day. {I will likely get to the point where I don’t miss her and begin to wonder why the three hours is going by so quickly.}

    Hey, testing it out. It seems to be working fine in FF with me signed into JS-Kit. I'll try logged into blogspot as well. I'm still having problems accessing your site in IE 8. It's freezing up when I try to scroll down, something to do with mediamonster. It's waiting forever for whatever that is. However, it's fine in FF.

    I just wanted to say I feel your pain about the heat. My AC went out for a day before I could get someone to fix it. Dry heat. Wet heat. It's all the same when it's in the 80's or higher in your house. It's miserable.

    This is me signed into Blogger. It did take a few seconds for the Blogger sign in window to come up, but it eventually did. It also left my previous feed in the comment box, but once I added the url under add another site and then unchecked and check the CL box, it picked up the correct feed. It looks like it's my most current. If you want, I can test another browser to see if that's your issue. It just won't be IE8, since it's freezing up my computer when I scroll down your site.

    Safari test. I had to hit reload after logging in for it to work. It wouldn't even let me type anything. May be a Safari issue as opposed to your site.

    I will NOT miss:
    1. My neighbors loud, bratty, obnoxious kids running all around like banshees all day/night long.
    2 – 10: See number 1!


    God bless school!!
