i’m clearly undecided on this whole blogging thing.
no declarations of my newfound faithfulness to the blog.
no announcement of abandonment.
just another post. probably sans pictures- sorry mom.
i’m ready for real life to begin again.
summer was fun, lazy, open-ended & delicious.
i need a schedule NOW!
i need to be a bit more busy- a bit more ‘book-ended’ by obligations. looking ahead to 4-5 days with nothing on the calendar was wonderful for the summer. now it’s over & i’m ready- it was getting tiresome.
our fall looks pretty good! caroline has school (half days) on MWF, julia has ‘parents day out’ on WF. I have BSF leader’s meeting on Mondays, which julia will go to with me. all 3 of us go to BSF on Tuesdays from 8:30 to 12:15ish. Thursdays are our unscheduled days- zoo, library, botanical gardens, world bird sanctuary (my kids love it- so strange) here we come! i’m glad we have a day each week that’s open ended- stay in PJ’s & eat pancakes, build a fort, have a tea party (which ALWAYS involves orange juice & goldfish crackers- why? i dunno).
fridays are a question mark… matt’s day off. girls in school. my ‘long run’ day (training for a marathon- that’s a post unto itself). sounds nice, yes? i’m secretly (not so secretly- this is a public blog) afraid that i won’t get to take full advantage of my 3 hours with no kids because matt will be at home! yes, the pastor’s wife is admitting selfishness- take a deep breath. i’m SO overwhelmed by how hard parenting these 2 beautiful & obnoxious little girls has been this year- i’m DYING for 3 hours by myself (2x a week- woohoo!) and i don’t want to share it! i know we’ll reach a wonderful compromise- right, matt? love of my life? you still love me even though i put this on my blog, yes?? : ) maybe it will involve coffee dates before we go pick up the girls from school… that would be nice. i know he needs time to himself, too- turns out being a pastor is hard work-
that’s it… ready for school, ready for BSF, ready for 65 degree temps & the smell of falling leaves. ready for long sleeved t-shirts & shorts- my favorite outfit, always.
maybe ready to re-enter the blogging world? we’ll see. thanks for your patience & for not sending me hate mail.
