Life has been a whirlwind around here and I feel like most of the time I’ve just been sitting on the edge of the pool, really wanting to get in, but not making that big jump. Not just making that mad dash into the freezing water because of the exorbitant initial chill, forgetting that once you get in the chill is gone and the fun can begin. So instead I just make circles around the water and then get up walk around some more and hope the water won’t be so cold on the other side.
I’d like to think that I've been making my best efforts to enjoy life to the fullest with my Men but instead I just keep doing circles and again and again and again. You know: that get up make breakfast, do a few chores, try to get in a small activity, make lunch, clean, think about dinner, make dinner, clean some more, get every one bathed, and read to, and then bed. Only to wake up and do it again. Those are the circles I’m talking about here. So I feel like I’ve been an Onlooker, not really the Doer that I usually am.
Summer is almost over. Like today is officially the last day. Because tomorrow starts the weekend and then on Monday… SCHOOL.
But I’m still watching the water. How in the world is that possible?
So slowly, very slowly, I think I’ll get back into the swing of things. School always does that to you, you know.
Yup, that’s what I think I’ll do. Take one step at a time.
The hooligans and I headed off to a resort last week with my mom for a few days. The boys had a blast in all of the pools. I spent most of my time sitting on a lounge chair holding Popeye. It was a nice little getaway. Thanks Mom and Dad!
Come Monday, it’s a whole new ball game. Dang, ready or not I’ll have to jump in.
With both feet.
Have you been splashing or sitting on the edge?
