Life has been busy. Sometimes it feels egocentric to make such a comment. Everyone's life is busy. It's more accurate to say that life at our home has crossed the threshold of healthy to another place entirely. When Eric came home from work yesterday around his right eye it was dark brown and red. I sent him to bed. He's been functioning the last couple of weeks with four our five hours of sleep a night.
If we're going to enjoy Summer fully I think we are going to need to do some scaling back. I thinned down my blog reading subscriptions. I said no thank you to some play dates this week. (That was much harder to do than thinning the list of blogs I follow.) We decided to make a day out of what usually is an all-weekend camping trip. I'm trying to take on some of Eric's outdoor chores (like mowing the lawn) so he doesn't have to.
I know a lot of people plan on Summer being the time when they go, go, go in the sunshine. We want to stay at home and play in our yard, mow the lawn, read books on the porch, and enjoy ice cream cones on the steps.
