School is officially back in session. One full week to be exact. It’s funny, I found myself deeply sighing many times this past week. I think I was holding my breath all summer. Just rushing around. Not really going anywhere, just rushing around to get the kids here and there… and there and here… and over there. and over here.
Now, all is right with the world again. My kids are happily back at school and enJOYing their days. And I am happily back at my stuff. I just got back into my Good Carma workshop, where I hammer out hand stamped jewelry. I love this craft. This summer I felt like it was on hold because I didn’t have any me-time. Now that we are back to our regularly scheduled program, I find myself with time again.
This weekend was perfect. Lots and lots and lots of down time. Lots and lots of family down time. We all really enJOYed just hanging low on Saturday. No one had anything to do!!! rare!!! I think it’s funny that when all 4 of us are sitting at the table together, my kids know I”m going to make a comment of how nice it is that we are all together. I think they wait for me to say it now, b/c they know it’s coming. I can’t help myself, I love calling attention to the moments when we are all together (I know those days are slipping by too quickly!). No one rushing to be anywhere. Just be right here. Sitting together. Sharing a meal. I love slow evenings!!!
On Sunday we hung low most of the day then the kids had sleepover plans. Today Madi & I spent a girls day out with our favorite mother/daughter duo friends.
At the beginning of the summer I was concerned about being out of balance. Now that school has started back up, I feel like balance is returning.
Balancing being a mom with being me. Balancing kids schedules with my schedule. Balancing being with lots of people to being alone with just my sweet hubby.
Ahhhh, I can breathe again.
Balance has returned. My world is right.
