Eric being the Social type, could circle the wagons, shoot the shit and laugh ALL night every night!! It doesn't come nearly as easily for me. I'd be totally fine at the top of a mountain without the bother of people for months on end. Lol
Unfortunately, during the holiday rush especially, Moms are in a constant state of rush and run, smile, and nod, solve, and plan for the entire family! Only half way through the season, where every single night of the next 2 weeks is scheduled with holiday gatherings , family traditions, and "hustle and bustle." I needed a breather.
Early this morning Simon and I took off away from people, and crazy, to just breathe!! Of course I brought my trusty thermos of coffee!. We set up the blanket and Si was watching birds for about 10 minutes before the phone rang. (It was the school otherwise I'd have ignored it.) Carter desperately needed me at the school now! -to turn in his book order he forgot at home 😅- So Simon and my, 10.5 minutes of solitude and quiet abruptly came to an end! I got up, gathered my belongings and picked up the blanket. I gave it a good flip to shake off the pine needles... And my forgotten car keys went *swish-plunk* into the lake... 😑 Luckily they were still visible. But not nearly close enough to grab at from shore . . . I was going in. I love a good morning skinny dip. In 38° weather even... sure😥 But with my 2 year old laughing at me and my demanded presence at the boys school, it wasn't the relaxing fun water adventure i would hope for... After putting back on my clingy clothes and shaking the water out of my now broken key fob. I raced back to civilization without the calm meditative morning I had planned.! 😂😂😂 What would the world do without Mommys??👊 Can I get an AMEN!!!
