Mid-Summer Doldrums

What are the mid-summer doldrums?  These are times that a person seems tired and listless from the summer activities and for me the time for back to school sales to start and to send the kids back to the classrooms.  Tired of kids that think it is their world and they can do whatever they want even if it went it against what adults said not to do.  They think they can do whatever they want when they want.  I really do think they think they are entitled to do whatever they want.  They only help when they want to and that is not very much for very long.

The summer doldrums have set in and they are bored with everything and when they do want to do some of the things they wanted to do at the start of the summer they usually only do it for a little while and then they argue with each other.  School should be all year round like a regular jobs with small breaks in between to stop the summer doldrums and boredom.  The image is the way I feel this long into summer vacation.  Please, oh please, Jesus let the school year start soon. I hate to be honest but this time of year I begin to hate having kids around, especially when you have a new job to do all they do is run in and out and bicker with each other.

This is me just getting things off my chest and I am really tired of summer vacations that are three months off and kids are bored usually two weeks into the summer break.
