i know a lot of you sweet friends of mine LOVE to go, go, go, and do, do, do. you keep your schedules very busy and structured. i have dreams of being more like you and have come a long way in that area. i try to enjoy those times where we are busy and have "plans", but i LOVE nothing more than to have NOWHERE to be, and do just that....go NOWHERE!
i guess i'm a homebody of sorts. i do like to go on vacation, don't get me wrong. well, you know that about me. :) but if vacation is not involved, i get extremely overwhelmed when i don't have enough days at home. it makes me feel like my life is spinning out of control! it gives me great stress to be too busy!
i LOVE to wake up in the morning and know that we don't have to go anywhere unless we want to and i can catch up on lots of things that i have neglected while we were going and doing the past couple of days. my sweet husband knows this about me. this morning, he got up and let me sleep in a few extra minutes. when he came in to wake me up he said, "are you excited that you don't have to go anywhere today!" it made me smile! :)
as my kids are getting older, we are having to be out and about much more often. i know it will only get worse. i will enjoy the things we do and i know i will constantly evaluate if we are doing too much. we will never be involved in every activity, sport, or be at every fun thing going on in town. we just can't. i'll go insane! :) but we'll have fun, don't worry about us!
we are getting ready to head to the pool but that is not really GOING anywhere. it's in our neighborhood and we can walk. although, we will drive today because it is SO hot and i'm not in the mood to get wet (drenched in sweat) before the pool. no, i'd rather get wet by getting IN the pool.
anyway...loving today. loving that i have NOWHERE to be. :)
