June and July at the day job are very slow months. The attitudes are also a bit more relaxed because we know the uptick in work won’t start until August. So, we goof around a little more, linger a little longer at the group birthday parties (cake!), talk about our weekend plans and wonder Why it isn’t Friday yet? more often than not.
I’ve been through about 14 of these summers so I know the pattern well. There will be an initial “freak out” in the first two weeks of August (and plethora of weeknight therapy happy hours), then the eventual crash and burn the first week of September. But after that the weeks will fly by and it will all start to calm down again somewhere in the middle of January.
I’m bracing myself for a busy beginning to the end of this year.
It’s gonna be greeeeeeaaaaaat!
