Every year that "Whoa!" moment comes and takes me by surprise for some odd reason. I should see that it's coming since it does every year, right? How is it that the first couple of weeks of Summer break always leave me scrambling?
Do I get grouchy about this from time to time? yes. There is quite a bit of industrious introvert in me who misses long quiet hours of progress that might come in the winter or fall. But my gosh, look at all the fun we are having. Fishing (I don't fish - I take pictures of my boys fishing, it's cute), hiking in the green green woods, doing kid crafts, eating popsicles, catching up with neighbors, and on and on. So, I shouldn't complain. What I should do is go with the flow and adjust accordingly. You can't hear it but I assure you that I am laughing out loud right now because I am not good at that 'going with the flow' thing at all.
This much I know - there are good good times ahead in the coming months. And maybe, just maybe, I might get one or two things done as well.
