a BETTER story
If you read my post on Thursday you probably know that this past week was just a TAD stressful. Who am I kidding, last week I was a crazed, exhausted, and stressed out mess. I was running on coffee, fumes, and adrenaline. I actually went to work on Wednesday without my work computer and classroom keys. On Thursday I fell asleep during my lunch break.
I know last week is far from the norm in our story, but that fact that it happened was scary enough. I think last week was a bit of a wake-up call for me. I spend a lot of my life making lists, organizing, and planning, but I also over plan, stress-out, and get distracted from the important stuff.
Summer is just around the corner and I think for the next three sunshine filled glorious months our little family will be taking a break from the norm. We are going to build a better story for our family. We are going to spend more quality time together. There will be less list making and more day trips, story reading, napping, swimming, and visiting.
We are canceling cable, buying more books, going to the beach, having picnics, and going to the park.
I am ready for some AWESOME.
