Since Annika was starting her first year of full-time school this year, in the last month of the summer I found myself wanting to just hang out with her, spend time doing fun stuff, play with friends and go to bed early so I had the energy for it again the next day.
Summer is exhausting when you have kids. There is lots of running around in the heat and swimming and just general tiredness.
Then, the week before school started, we revved up for our new schedule by going to bed super early and getting up super early. I even stopped drinking wine so I wouldn’t be tempted to keep sleeping when the alarm went off.
I found that I liked it. This new attitude of just letting my life take over. I didn’t want to think about writing it all down. Or think about having an opinion about what was going on in the world.
But I’m back. I hope a few people missed me.
