It really was a lovely trip to the Lowcountry – adventures and photos and stories that I want to share, memories I want to revel in.
But right now, all I can manage is a teaser.
With just these few days left of break, I need – I want – to focus on other things. Bill-paying, yard-raking, grocery-getting, Easter shopping (kind of forgot that Sunday is Easter; oops), suitcase-unpacking, email-answering, house-cleaning, phone call-making… Okay, those are more needs than wants.
What I want to focus on is this:
Not necessarily the swimming part (although it was remarkably refreshing), but the kid part. I’m already feeling the same stress start to creep in that was present before we left (which is particularly annoying, given that we just got back and you’d think my brain would suffer relaxation-lag, like jet-lag), that overwhelming sense of too-much-not-enough-time… but I am deliberately trying to ignore it, to push it away, because I want to spend the rest of this time enjoying my girls, really enjoying them.
The food will be purchased. The errands will be run. The yard will… well, I’m not sure there. Easter will happen. Everything will get done.
Or it won’t.
Either way, there are pancakes to be made and an all-girls grocery run to be had, and then I don’t know, but I am looking forward to it.
It’s still spring break, and I want to enjoy every day of it.
I’ll be back next week…
