It’s been gogogogogoGO! for me. Monday marked a moment to stop and slow down. Breathe a little. The girls are away at camp this week, Karianne is traveling through Canada and Washington D.C. with her family, and Sam has Lego Camp for three hours each morning.
I’m trying to make myself slow down and yet it seems like there is still too much crammed into a single day. I only have myself to blame. Tomorrow, though, I’m going to take full advantage of the time alone in the house. I will not do any of the have-tos, only the I-wish-I-had-time-fors.
The list is still long, and I’m tempted to make a list, prioritize it, and check things off. But I’m not going to let myself do this. Instead I’m going to pause.
Otherwise, I’m going to crash. Sometimes it gets to the point where we just have to stop.
So this is me, stopping.
