It’s been a while. I don’t even really know the last time we spoke. I know it was before school ended and the elusive summer began. Well, I’m back!
Almost every past summer I have been a blob. A bump on a log. A slug. Anything you could use to describe a super lazy person. My summers usually consist of lying on the couch, snuggling with my pups, and watching endless mind-numbing tv. By the end of summer I have to relearn how to use a pencil. And my brain. This would not be the case this summer.
Here is a quick list of what I have done since the children were released from their confines of the classroom:
*Went to Chicago to shoot a wedding
*Finished packing my classroom
*Finished packing my apartment
*Unpacked and settled into new apartment
*Unpacked (and not completely settled into) classroom
*Tutor 9 children a week
*Numerous errands and home chores
*Edited 100-some wedding photos
Those are the main things that I can remember. I feel like I am running 100 mph and try to give myself a little time to relax (and possibly nap) each day. I have been busy, but my to-do list is never ending and my want-to-do list hasn’t really even been started. I have wanted to do numerous photo walks this summer, but have barely picked up the camera since the wedding. I have wanted to get into more of an exercise routine, but it has been spotty and very hit-and-miss. I have wanted to scrapbook and read more, but my time seems to be taken by other things. Oh yeah, I wanted to blog more regularly, and we see how that is working out for me.
Maybe someday I will get everything done that I want, but until then I will continue to spin my wheels. Hopefully I will be back sooner rather than later 🙂
Until then, enjoy your summer, and when you are lounging by the pool with a fruity drink in your hand, think of me 🙂
