I'm not embracing here very well lately. I'm restless and bored, like a caged tiger. Reading far too much, like a drunk on a book binge. My metabolism's up, thanks to the thyroid meds, and I'm putting the new Mother's Day elliptical to good use, but I feel like I'm living my life waiting for something. On hold, but not really.
Maybe it's the end of the school year that's done it. Two weeks left of school. The kids go to school in the fall; public school. We've been schooling for two straight years - right through last summer. And we all know it's winding down. All of us ready for something new.
Maybe I just don't want to be "here" anymore. Homeschooling and trapped in the house. We went to the library, in the middle of the day, for the second time this week. And I'm trying to plan the summer. Places to take the kids every week to get to know our new home town better. If they weren't being tested in June, I swear tomorrow would be our last day of school.
But! Today is Mae's fourteenth birthday. Yay! My little girl is really growing up. She has a part-time volunteer job at the library this summer. We gave her a black acoustic Fender for her birthday. She's looking forward to high school soon. And I'm glad to see her becoming independent and enjoying herself. So today at least I'll try to live in the here and now. Especially when we slice into our homemade ice cream cake. :)
Until I write again ...
