Boy summer is hard to have some normalcy in our life.
Everyone is coming and going.
Or staying. On the couch. Watching endless amounts of netflix, playing videos games and on their phones. All at the same time.
I feel like we are either all racing: to work, to camp, to volunteer jobs. Drive here, drive there. Drive everywhere.
Or Rob and I are racing to work and the kids are just lazing around. And truthfully, that’s sort of easier.
Last night was the first night in ages we have had everyone together so we wanted to have family night. We all cheered Sam on at his soccer game and then headed home to go get some ice cream and watch a show together. It was nice just to do sort of nothing.
Then, like the little kids we are, Rob and I went to bed while everyone else stayed up and who knows when they went to bed? This week is a bit of a lazy week, so it’s a bit of a free for all!
But I figured we needed a quote to keep our minds thinking at least:
“Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow. And, if you don’t like where you are, then move. You are not a tree.”
It’s a bit of a funny quote for this week considering that the kids are having a lazy week, but I thought it was an appropriate one for Rob and me to ponder as our family gets older, as we continue to work and as life seems to get busier and we evaluate what we do with our time….
