Isn't it amazing how you get onto your blog, just to "check quickly" and suddenly you're sucked into that world of "Oh, look at what he said" or "What a great idea, let me just read that blog" and you look up and an hour (or more) has gone by?
Yeah, me too.
It's February, and with a new month comes Farley's Currently
Clothes are getting clean, groceries will soon be purchased (have to get off the computer to do that!) and the house put in some semblance of order. All good stuff.
I love Saturdays because I wake up on my own. No alarm clock. What a treat! In my younger days, I never imagined that "sleeping in" until 7:30 was something people did!
My husband and I are running a Capital Campaign for our church - this is the month when our days and evenings will be full. In addition, I coach a Quiz Bowl team, which I love, but that's extra time. And I teach. And I'm a mom to three kids, who are older, but still need to talk, cry, bounce ideas off their parents. And I'm a wife to a great guy. There you have it - a full month!
Which is why I need to remind myself to be gentle on myself. Just breathe. It's all good.
Yesterday afternoon, I had to deal with a bunch of kids who were pushing and shoving in one case, and spreading rumors in another, and I just wanted to stop everything and have some kind of "Love Fest" or something. Something to make everyone a little more thoughtful and compassionate. But I didn't. I taught Science instead. :)
I hope you have a great weekend. With time to relax and refresh!
