Where Has the Summer Gone?


I’m finding it hard to believe that summer is coming to an end.  I wasn’t sure where I’d be by now, but I thought I’d be a little further along in my plans than I am.  I have definitely been procrastinating.  Waiting for a sign that the time for change has arrived.  But I continue to look the other way, missing the signs!

Honestly, I am not terribly surprised that I’m stuck in this status quo.  As they say, it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks.  I’ll get there eventually.  It’s just a matter of time.  Weeks or years?  Who the hell knows.

In the meantime, we’re getting together with dear friends this weekend and preparing Sophie and Chloe for 1st and 5th grades (shocking).  And I will spend a good part of this long holiday weekend wondering where the summer went.

Chloe has a friend here for a sleepover, and they and Sophie are having a pillow fight in the attic.  I hear lots of squeals of laughter.  The noise comforts me and makes me smile.  And serves as a reminder that in spite of our daily challenges, life is really good.
