Hey there! We’re back.
I am currently surrounded by a mountain of washing to do, washing to be put away, bags to be unpacked, a to-do list as long as your arm (and growing), plus all the normal day-to-day routine tasks to be done.
It makes you wonder whether it is worth going away.
But as quickly as that thought comes to mind I remember how good it was to be away.
Away from the normal day-to-day routine. How everything just s l o w e d right down.
Away from the things that drive me crazy being at home. How there was acres of space for the kids to roam and explore.
I remember how for a whole week I never yelled once. And I haven’t yelled since being home, either!
How for a whole week we were without our technological devices and no-one missed the t.v.!
So, even though there is a few extra tasks to be done, they don’t need to be done all at once.
If I wish to hold onto anything from our break away, it is slowing down.
And by slowing down I mean to accept (and REALLY accept) that things will happen in their own good time.
I will attack that pile of washing, load by load. Nothing is going to make that go any faster, or dry any quicker. It is what it is.
I will unpack those bags, one bag at a time, maybe the kids will help me, maybe they won’t. It will happen. When it can happen.
I’ll keep adding to the to-do list. And I’ll do what I can. Some things will get checked off. Others won’t (well, not today). It is what it is.
Our daily rhythm will begin again, I expect this to change anyway, there’s been a change in the air while we’ve been away.
A new season is about to begin.
Now it is time for this weeks The Weekly Kids’ Co-Op!
Heads up: I’ll be looking for five awesome sensory activities to feature next week!
