Summer's End Haiku

This odd summer wanes
Everything seems mixed up
There were some good times

That about sums it up. We began with Hillary's high school graduation and my unknown employment status. Then Hillary began her next chapter at the special needs medical daycare and I tried to sort through both objects and papers as well as emotions from the past 18 years. Hillary transitioned to her new program very well. I felt as if I couldn't get my feet under me. There were, however, good times spent with friends and family. Shopping at the mall, lunches, sitting around a backyard campfire talking with friends late into the evening, game days, a wedding and of course vacation were the best parts of the summer. The weather was mostly beautiful-warm with low humidity, a few rainy days and a couple very hot humid days thrown in just to remind us of the season. The hottest high humidity days came in September where on the calendar summer remains until the end of the month. Along with the heat the final few weeks of the season brought a new employer in the same job, same location, and mostly the same coworkers but shorter hours for me. Shorter hours necessary because Hillary's daycare starts later than her school day did. As we settle in to our new routines and my feelings begin to sort themselves out I look forward to finishing dealing with those objects left from the 18 years of Hillary's school career and make room in my house and my head for the future.

Your haiku describes my summer as well! Wishing you a fall that is less odd.
