The days and weeks fly by. Tuesday, again? How did that happen?
Why does time seem to speed up more and more the older I get?
Sometimes the hours feel too full to accomplish all I want to do.
But what I most want to do is slow down and just be.
Soon. This weekend we're going away.
I'm really looking forward to a mini-vacation together as a family.
I have a big stack of books on CD for the long car trip south through the mountains: Bill Bryson, Car Talk, Dave Barry, This American Life. Something for every family member.
And when we arrive at our destination: walking, cooking, swimming, cuddling, movie watching, relaxing....
But in the meantime: lesson planning, quiz writing, homework helping, homework correcting, working, shopping, packing. Back to it!
Having something to look forward to is so helpful.
