For the Love of Flaws: And Time

I have the pleasure of being home full time for 3 fulls weeks so far. I have only 4 days left with the “tall one” (he is heading off to air force basic training). I have only 4 FULL weeks left… only LOL …  We have had lots of fun so far this summer and this summer off has created lots of excitement and memories.

I am still working on the arguments I tend to have in my head, about taking time for myself and spending (making up) time with my family.  I am so grateful to have a VERY supportive family that goes above and beyond to help me create balance.

In all of this, I find myself focusing on the “little time” left and what I need to get accomplished prior to my school year starting (we start August 1).  I am definitely getting better at pushing those thoughts out of my head.

Do any of you out there spend time worrying about the time… instead of utilizing the time? If so share with me, ,won’t you. If you struggled with this and mastered how to get over with it…. spit it out and share your methods with me and my over active brain.

  1. It was once my greatest challenge. Trying to find enough time to simply DO what I knew I had to DO. In recent years and it will eventually come to us all gentle peace and life’s pressures have slowed This is age and now I look back with a little regret for all the days and years I raced through and now I wonder why I thought that so much HAD TO BE DONE. Children grow and are gone and some of the days could have been spent better. Life is full and so much still ahead. Don’t forget to smell the roses and see the sky on your way.

    1. Faye you always share so much wisdom. I am thankful for your following and comments. Yes our oldest left for basic training for the US Air Force today – and preparing for that process has definitely helped to slow down and enjoy the time. We had a nice slow 4 day stay-cation to enjoy the family and just each others company. It was fabulous.
