An Essay: My Summer Vacation

This summer will be an exciting one. I plan on starting each day by getting out of my night pajamas and into my day pajamas. I will then do a little no-work dance that will start in my bedroom and go down the stairs into the kitchen where I will prepare my breakfast. For breakfast, I will have cereal with milk (not cereal shoved into a baggie to shove into my mouth so i can get to work on time) and orange juice (not the warm water in my car left over from yesterday's water bottle).

I will then do my no-work dance again as I dance my way up to my sewing room (aka- room with futon that needed a fancy name like "sewing room"). I will then sit in my day-pajamas and sew and sew and sew all morning long. I will only take breaks for food and to take calls from friends asking me to do fun day-time things (which i will sometimes change out of my day-pajamas for, but sometimes i will proudly wear them).

Food will be a very exciting part of my summer vacation. I will eat lots of fun foods including peanut butter, reese cups, cheese, snickers bars, and tootsie pops. To balance my diet, i plan on cooking and baking up a storm for dinner and snack time with husband. But daytime eating will be an utter celebration of no-work and i may even do my no-work dance while eating.

Because I have worked so hard on losing weight (aka- getting my wisdom teeth out), I plan on skipping on outside for walks, possible gym trips, and maybe even do a no-work dance outside. Of course, since my days are already brimming with activity, i may need to cut out something....

My afternoons will also be bustling with snacks and TV. TV is a very important part of summer vacation. Catching up on shows and infomercials is crucial in order to stay aware of the latest workout equipment, homes for sale in Minnesota and Oklahoma, the best place to eat in Kansas, why puppy mills are bad, which disease i may have, and which new ziploc bags to buy.

With all this excitement, I feel a poem coming on....
Summer summer is so fun.
Summer summer in the sun.
Summer summer sewing lots.
Summer summer cooking with pots.
Summer summer no-work dance.
Summer summer day pajama pants.
Summer summer you are finally near.
Summer summer you are so dear.
