Again, it’s been forever since I’ve posted. It’s ironic – the busier I am, the more I have to write about, but the less time I have to write. When I have time to write, I don’t have anything to write about.
It’s been another busy weekend, on top of a busy month. Nate & Rachel visited in early June, and we had an awesome, jam-packed weekend with them. We had one weekend off, and then we had more visitors – my brother, his girlfriend, and Tim’s brother. We spent the 10 days visiting Mom and Dad, chilling on the back patio because the weather was the most perfect weather I have ever seen, playing Bags on the awesome Bags setup Benny built, drinking lots of microbrews, playing Euchre and Settlers of Catan, canoeing, watching the misty galaxies float by in Monticello, and dodging spinning firecrackers that tried to attack Mom and me. Our cooler saved us and has the battle scars to prove it.
This was our first weekend guest-free, but Tim was driving shuttles for the JD Classic, and I was bringing our household back in order. It went by in a flash. I did get to run yesterday, which felt great. Amazingly enough, 10 days of brats, beer, and pretzel M&Ms kind of jacks up the body. I feel one million times better after running yesterday and walking today. I think my posture has even improved. I know my mental disposition has. I woke up out-of-sorts today – I blame it on the clouds and loneliness. One day to myself after a busy, full week is perfect. Two days is too much. I missed the Teems. I forced myself to get out and walk (I couldn’t muster up the energy to run), and the birds, and the trees, and the breeze cleared up my head and put me to rights.
Hopefully I’ll find some time this week to get my writing caught up with my thoughts and activities. I have so much to write about – Star Wars in Concert, my new purse, the new blanket I started crocheting, the table my brother and dad are building for me, the Fair I want to go to, the books I want to read and have read, the movies we watched, the trials and happiness of living in a small house, the joys and frustrations of trying to raise tomatoes, the best pajama shorts ever, etc. etc. etc.
But now it’s tea-time, and I need to finish Fellowship of the Rings. Good night until I have another pocket of time, energy, and inspiration.
