the 23rd of September approaches, a day in which the leaves on every
tree shall soon change color, began to think back and remember what I have
accomplished in this past summer. Of course, I have read books and eBooks as
well as having done my writing projects, so I have no trouble saying that I
have been busy this summer. Of course, there was not much else to do other than
what I have just mentioned since I had been working at my food service job.
But alas, another summer has come and gone, and I think that I am glad that summer is over, because truthfully, I never really had a quiet one this year than in the previous years because my first cousin’s son had been staying with us for full weeks every two weeks for the summer instead of staying with us every weekend. Now, I do not know why this has happened, and I wish I knew why this has happened, but believe it or not, it has happened. But my guess happens to be that my first cousin’s son never got to spend any quality time this summer with his mom, and now that boy has been staying with us throughout the past six weeks. I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but things have been quite frustrating for me because that boy had been here instead of being with his mom, and do you want to know something else? Again, I do not want to sound ungrateful, but I would like for that little boy to be with his mother because I think that she loves him and that she misses him so very much.
And would you like to hear something else interesting? Almost every day after I had finished work, my uncle would drive me home in the usual way, and with that I could see the farm fields as well as a lake, and then afterward I would see that WSFS sign in the building of that bank in Felton, Delaware, as a sign that we are nearing home. But now, with the fact that my cousin’s son is continuing to be with us, my uncle is taking me back in a much different route than the usual way home, and to me, it is something of an inconvenience, because I like to get home early and to just relax. But with the fact that my first cousin’s son is still with us, I do not think that it is ever going to happen now, and I imagine that it is going to be that way until things finally get back to normal and that little boy will finally get to go back to staying with his mother on full weekdays while going right back to just visiting us on weekends.
I also do not know why my uncle would not allow me to be impatient when it came
to me wanting to go home or that the time would be for me to take my medicine.
I only wish as well that he would understand my flaws and what I am going
through in life.
I do not know what the coming year would bring for me as well as the rest of my family, but what I would like to address is this: I hope that when next summer comes around, then maybe my first cousin shall finally have his own place so that he and his son could live, and then perhaps visit on weekends. I hope that next summer for me would be much different than what I have endured this summer.
