Today is my first official day of summer vacation. After much thought I decided that this summer I should not work but instead spend time with Jacob (who in my opinion is growing up way too fast for my liking!). I am looking forward to spending time at the library, the pool, the park, and going on fun adventures.
Normally when I am overly excited about something I expect way too much and then become greatly disappointed with the way it turns out. Not this summer! I am just going to go with the flow – if it rains we will hang indoors watching movies, reading books, and writing letters. I am refusing to expect too much from this vacation.
If I was expecting too much from this summer I would have already been thrown for a loop. I tried to get to bed early so I could wake up early to get a good walk in before Jacob woke up. But sleeping did not come easy last night … I tossed and turned, got up, read a magazine, took a Kava, went back to bed, tossed and turned some more, woke up every thirty minutes starting at 6 a.m., woke up at 9, and saw the rain dripping down the windows. Ugh! Not what I planned but that is ok!
I am drinking my coffee as Jacob continues his slumber. He must really need his sleep!
So instead of my previous plans I am drinking coffee, reading others blogs, and enjoying the peace and quiet.
Tonight Jacob has Summerfest (Vacation Bible School) at church and hopefully we can get to the library at some point today.
So this summer I plan to go with the flow and enjoy every moment.
What are your plans for the summer?
