We are wrapping up our second week of summer vacation. Last week was incredibly lazy. We stayed in our jammies until noon. Some days Beanie (2) never really got dressed. The kids watched movies, played on the computer, swam and played outside. I read, played on the computer (blogged), swam and putzed around the gardens. At moments e.g., when someone came over and none of us were dressed, I would feel like a slug.
Looking back I could see we were all just exhaling after one of the busiest and stressful years of our family life. It was mostly good things, so I wasn’t especially mindful of the burden. I just kept sprinting. I will leave it at that since I get really annoyed when people go on and on about “needing to unplug” or I hear others bragging about “letting go” for their whole week of vacation. Blah, blah, blah.
All this to say, I am alive. My kids are home from school. I am committed to giving them my time and attention. Will have to fit blogging around that.
