Summer is here and the kids are out of school. It’s time for some fun in the sun, enjoying summer activities with the family. So … which classic summer song best describes your situation?

  • Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer: “Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. Those days of soda and pretzels and beer. Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer, I wish that summer could always be here!” (Nat King Cole, 1961)
  • Summertime Blues: “Well I’m gonna raise a fuss and I’m gonna raise a holler. About workin’ all summer just to try and earn a dollar. Every time I call my baby to try to get a date, my boss says, ‘No dice, son, you gotta work late.’ Sometimes I wonder what I’m a-gonna do, cause there ain’t no cure for the summertime blues.”  (Eddie Cochran, 1958)

Don’t let another “vacation-less” summer pass you by

Does your job have you struggling with finding time to enjoy life and spend time with your family, especially now that summer is here? Many people are working longer hours each day and more days of the week just to make ends meet. Relaxation, vacations and personal time are hard to find. Undoubtedly, your boss manages to get regular time off and take annual family vacations, so why not you?
