. . . And We're Off And Running

Yes, I took an entire two weeks off of writing, so if you’re still with me you’re a true friend. And honestly, there were several times when I had the urge to sit down at the keyboard and type out a story – some incredibly cute thing my kid had said, or insanely profound thought I’d just had on parenting. And promptly forgot.

But I resisted that urge, partly out of laziness and partly as an intentional stepping away from everything non-essential in my life for a couple weeks. I’ve had an intense two weeks nesting with my family, and have resisted anything resembling closet re-organizing or long-term projects around the house, trading that in for another round of UNO with the girls.

We’ve had a great two weeks and I won’t say I’m not sad that the girls are going back, because I’d be lying. I love those little monkeys and wish we could hang around and read books and explore together all day long. But realistically, that won’t pay the bills and CPSC would be breathing down my neck pretty dang fast about the astounding lack of math in my “unschooling curriculum”.

So it’s back to the school routine we go, all of us (temporarily) sated from lots of sleep and snuggles.

Only two and a half months to spring break . . .
