I intended to post earlier than today. I intended to let you all know about our June plans. I intended to do so many things, but as you can see, I did not quite accomplish everything I set out to do. Regardless, I want you to know I am taking a short break. It’s just for the month of June and I’m sure you won’t even notice. June, after all, is when the sun finally comes out and we spend less and less time at our computers and more and more time on the patio barbecuing and sharing drinks with dear friends.
If such things are not in your June plans, I suggest you make room for a bit of this type of recreational activity immediately. You deserve it.
And so do I. I need this time. I didn’t realize how much I needed it until I took a good look at the moms around me. Everyone seemed less frazzled, more alert, and even patient. That’s when I took note. These women are on paternity leave. It’s a wonderful thing and it’s something I didn’t give myself. As an independent worker, it wasn’t offered to me. As a hard-headed person, it didn’t sound like an option.
That was silly and I realize that now.
June is going to be a month of blissful walks, garden parties, and a bit of the dreaded sleep training. I’ll let you all know how it goes.
I bid you goodbye for now. I’ll be back shortly. The time will fly. I know it will. xo
