This is moving week. We’re doing this move ourselves so there hasn’t been too much fanfare, we’ve done this 14 times. 12? It’s at least over 10. ANYWAY. We’ve moved a lot. It’s second nature. I’ve got my kits for each of the critical rooms of the house so they can become fully functional right away, I’ve got my nice candles/wine kit, we’ve got access to a moving van this weekend …
So I thought I could keep everything going. The blog, the shop, regular activities.
And once upon a time, I could’ve. If you don’t know the story, I’ll give a brief overview: husband and I went back to college with two kids and worked 3-5 jobs between us while parenting/doing homework/one of those jobs was the National Guard so he was away sometimes/the year I got promoted and only worked FT while homeschooling PT was a break. So even though it took us a full year to recover from that five-year journey, I still think I can maintain that level of busyness. It’s my standard, and it really shouldn’t be. It’s like with running: I used to get up at 5 a.m. and go for a 5-mile run (or more), rain, snow, or the rare sunshine. I had discipline. But nowadays I feel no need to do that. I could, if I really wanted to, and maybe once the kids are older, but nah. I prefer running in the afternoons now, when it’s nice and the sun is out.
So my point, amidst the rambling, is that I am giving myself a bit of a break. I’ll be back Monday or Tuesday next week with photos,maybe, it’ll still be a mess-and I think I might actually put the shops on vacation over the weekend. I was going to pack all my business stuff last and unpack it first but it’ll just be less stress all around if I take a couple of days.
So. Art on, my friends! And see you next week;)
