I'm starting to get that summertime twitch, the one where I become so lazy and inactive that my mental muscles begin to spasm ever so slightly. This happens in the summer when I transition from non-stop grading, lesson planning, emailing to families, and teaching to a vast and endless expanse of unfilled, unscheduled time. And I'm not complaining, I'm really not. But, the twitch is always just a little off-putting.
Last night I slept like the dead and did not pull myself from sleep until 9am. (I should note here that I am a morning person and am typically chipper and bouncing around the house no later than 7:30, even on weekends.) Then I was very productive: I called my phone company to discuss my bill, I sent several emails, and I prepared celery and peanut butter. After that overwhelming morning, I felt I needed a rest on the couch.
See what I mean about the lazy summer twitch? Last weekend Greg kept asking if I was okay because my response time during conversations has slowed to a stuttering crawl. My brain is hibernating, whadaya want from me? It's summer!
