This past week was the first week without my daughter since she went back to her campus. I have been lucky to hear from her once a day and it seems like she is still here at home for the moments we are on the phone. Thank goodness for cell phone plans.
My son has one more week at home, we have yet to start gathering his things and packing them up. Even though school does not start until the end of August, I am acting and thinking like the school year has begun. My husband is a professor and will be back to his academic schedule the same time as my son. Having a schedule encourages me to be more productive. I do love the summer and the carefree lifestyle we all adopt, but it's time. It's time for fall and it's time to get stuff done around here.
I've resumed walking with Frodo in the early evening and I've realized that maybe I need to take ALL of my medicines for full physical function. (I have mixed connective tissue disease-a cross between rheumatoid arthritis and lupus). So even though I am a little tiny bit disappointed, I am really looking forward to seeing if I feel better and stronger to be fit. We will see.
I still need to clean up the kitchen, do some loads of laundry and tidy up the counters this morning and I really want to knit!
I hope you all have a wonderful lovely weekend filled with peace :)
