I have issues. I like to be busy. I have a hard time taking a break and relaxing. When I do my mind is always spinning thinking about what I should be doing. What needs to be cleaned, what I could be painting, etc.
But after the last couple of months I think I need to force myself to take a tiny break. My hubby being laid off has been so stressful and we need to just try to have some fun. Next week is the last week my kids will be home before school starts so the timing is perfect. I will be taking a week off from blogging, facebook, and twitter, and (gulp) projects. I will however check email once a day. Otherwise it would be too overwhelming after a week of not at least looking at them.
I have a few posts already scheduled. In fact, I started my break Thursday and you didn’t even know it! Ha! I love being able to schedule posts in advance :)
Already I have hung out in the hammock in the backyard. . .
But next time I will have to do it when the kids are not back there as well. Between them trying to see who could swing me the highest, to them whining about wanting a turn to lay in it, to comments like “Even dad didn’t make it sink THAT low.” and “Mom! You are practically touching the ground!” I didn’t exactly relax.
But I get points for trying, right?
I will see you soon!!!
