Hello?....... Is anyone still here?.......
This little corner seems to have been recently neglected. Not intentionally mind you.
Life just came steamrolling in. The hours turned into days and the days turned into weeks before I even realized the speed at which time was truly passing. The few moments I did have were absorbed by family and other activities.
If you've noticed a draft or slight breeze the last few days headed in the direction of the Pacific NW, it was probably the effects of filling my lungs fully with air in the realization and relief that yet another busy season has come to an end.
The process of recent evaluations for my daughter is nearly complete. Soccer and track competitions have ended. School has drawn to a close. My son's 8th grade graduation and high school orientation are finished. We even threw in some home remodeling, cleaning and organizing in the middle of it all.
Yes, taking a few deep breaths indeed.
Today is my second morning of not having to wake and rush out the door. I could get used to this quite quickly! In fact, with the children sleeping a bit longer than usual, it has allowed for extra quiet time for me. Something I truly treasure and have not taken for granted these last couple of mornings.
For those of you still here, thank you for being patient and hanging around while I focused my full attention on matters and people here at home.
I can't say that I regret one minute of it, but I can say that I have missed our chats in the meantime.
Planning and hoping for moments to settle back here once again.
Would love to hear what's been happening with you.
