Wow, I've been on the go for a while and it has taken a toll. I went out of town without my family for 3 weekends this fall. Preparing to leave the kids and hubby behind takes a lot of organization/planning around here. It's absurd.
I've been feeling kinda out of sorts for a while and it dawned on me that I hadn't been to church, or done a swim outside of my morning master's class (which isn't relaxing) or read a book for more than 10 minutes for quite some time. So I decided to fix that problem. Thursday I went to my hatha yoga class with this beautiful instructor.
On Saturday, after my son's flag football games were over, I did a swim by myself at the pool without setting any timed intervals. I just swam and it was heavenly. 50 minutes passed by in a flash. Then I took my daughter to see her friend dance in a ballet performance and came home to read a book. Weekend chores be damned.
We had a beautiful fall hike this morning with some boys and 2 dogs.
Dragged the teenager to the evening church service with me. Read a book while dinner was cooking. It was a great re-boot for my system. It's refreshing to have weekends like this.
