Did This Summer Suck More Than Any Other?
Okay, technically, summer isn't officially over until September 22nd but labor Day is kind of the unofficial end of the summer for most people, especially if you have to get kids back to school, etc.
Maybe I'm getting used to the chaos but I didn't think the summer was all that bad. Sure, we missed out on a lot of the staples of Summer, like get togethers with friends and family.
Of course, missing Moondance was a bummer and rumor has it next year may be the last of Moondance as we know it. We Fest wasn't going to happen anyway this summer, but it was still an event many looked forward to attending. We'll have to wait and see if it ever comes back.
I don't think I've eaten in a restaurant since early March, although I have gone through my share of take out and manged to frequent drive thru's more than most. Luckily, my wife and I did our traveling in February, before everything hit the fan.
What kind of surprised me was they did a survey of 1500 Americans and asked it this was the worst Summer ever. Surprisingly, only 16% of those surveyed said this summer basically sucked. 2% said it was "The best summer ever".
When asked what the most popular thing was to do over the Labor Day weekend, most answered, just do nothing and relax. I can relate to that.
Remember, it wasn't the worst summer ever. It was the worst summer, so far.
Here's hoping next summer is stellar!
