Summer Gaming Meltdown

Yes, its summer and its definitely more difficult to get groups together to game. Why? Because its summer dammit! Of course it is, and rightfully so. Even hardcore gamers appreciate the better weather to a certain degree. What that means for me is generally gaming sessions go down, but i get a chance to write more. I dont have to stay on top of the campaign, so i get to catch up on writing more adventure notes, updating the world and rule sets, and just play with ideas in general.
But, its been more difficult this year.. i just want to tune out more and more. Not sure if thats an side effect of getting older, stress, or what - but it means less stuff is getting done overall. I'm not even getting the lawn mowed... i'd rather watch movies, drink a cold beer, eat cheese and take a walk.
Where is all this going? Who knows... but i know i have adventure materials written for years to come so i am not worried on that front.
But, I'll tip my cold brew back and salute all you hardcore gamers out there still going at it in the heat and the summer, telling stories, experiencing them, and dreaming them in your own worlds. My hats off to you...
