Not literally. Figuratively. It's been a busy time. Nothing earth shattering. No tragedy. Thank goodness. Just very busy. In mostly good ways. Starting in early May I started checking things, commitments, off my list. Confirmation ended. My Wednesdays are now completely mine. Yeah.
Gracie's commitments at school and outside of school are coming to an end. That means Ann's taxi service catches a break.
I am counting down the days until school is done. This is my summer to get things done. I have a basement that needs attention and organization. In fact the whole house needs a once over. If you were to walk in the door right now, you would probably see that my house is pretty orderly. But deep inside there is work to be done. Things that need to be recycled, reused and reduced.
I've been on auto pilot for a while now and it's time to make life simple and prioritize what is most important. So this summer I will sleep more, eat better, exercise and take time to READ. At least a book a week, if not more. I remember the days when I could read two or three books a week. Good times.
Spending time with family and friends is a definite. Lots of time for that. And campfires and pontoon boat rides. This is what I am looking forward to this summer. I want to feel a sense of accomplishment. A sense of order brings peace to everything. Body, soul and mind. And this is what I strive for. Now that I'm back.
