08 Jun keeping occupied
I know that the summer months bring mixed reviews for moms. While some moms have been waiting eagerly for long sunny clean slate kind of day and the freedom from imposed school schedule, other moms dread it. For the most part, I’d be the latter.
The last week or so I have been feeling impending summer creeping up behind me; stalking me, taunting me. You’d better get as much as you can done now, it calls from just outside my periphery. It’s like an old Twilight Zone movie. You see, I love structure in my days. I love predictability. I love my time.
So I begin to visualize strategies on how to make this summer work so that it’s a pleasure for all of us. Keeping the kids busy (and happy) on a budget, building in work time for myself (at all costs) and time to just be. Together. Alone. A little of both.
My Best Shot today (which is also my belated SOOC shot) is one of those shots that reminds me that it’s not all bad being home, hanging out, just doing whatever we feel like. With all of my heart today, I hope that wishing for a summer that works for all of us isn’t too tall an order.
What are you cooking up this week for your Best Shot Monday?
