I told her I don't have time to slow down. I really feel like that right now. There are dentist appointments, doctor's appointments, Ombudsman duties, mom duties, wife duties...lots of hurrying up to sit and wait. I'm answering phone calls and emails while making cakes. I'm finding time to mow the lawn, make meals, read books, and play games. We're finishing up our homeschool year and making plans for the summer. It's busy. It's exhausting. It's good.
Really, it is.
I don't feel overwhelmed. Sure, I have my moments, but mostly I feel content. But, my mother-in-law is right. I should slow down from time to time. And not just when I'm tapping my foot waiting to cash out at the grocery store.
I think tomorrow we're going to go for a walk, pack a picnic, and enjoy the easy life. And maybe I'll teach the kids a little Simon and Garfunkel...
Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobblestones.
Looking for fun and feeling groovy.
