Those Crazy...but Not So Lazy, Days of Summer!!!
Why is it that summer is so crazy??? I always thought it was a time for relaxing and enjoying those lazy summer days??? Not so much around here. I have been just frantic with all the "Stuff" I have going on and feel pretty overwhelmed right now. My insomnia is back in full swing...hence why I am writing this post at some insane hour and I have been up most of the night. I spoke to Sam about this the other day and we both agreed that we were looking forward to Fall to get back into our comfortable routines and having calm in our lives again. Not that it's ever calm with a houseful of little ones, but you know what I mean. I am so looking forward to starting with our school lessons and having the smell of freshly baked bread in the house...it's too hot to bake in the summer...I want the kids to be able to go back outside and play, because currently it's too darn hot and I won't let them play out for very long. I can't wait to get back to my normal rhythm and calm. I need to remind myself to slow down and get back to our "Slow Family Living"...summer just makes me crazy!
Have you heard of "Slow Family Living"??? if you haven't , I highly recommend it! Slow is good...taking time to smell the roses and just enjoy each day and stop all the rushing about....here's a link.
