I’m not sure what happened, but I think the fast forward button on my life is stuck. The days just seem to go by faster and faster. I really have no idea where this week went. Maybe it’s because school is coming to an end in just over a month. Maybe it’s because the race that I have been looking forward to doing is in 2 weeks. Then there is the travel coming up, all the kids extracurricular activities, and being busy listing things on Etsy with my mom.
I get to the end of the day sometimes and just wonder what I did that day. Was it worth my time? Was it a” need to do” or a “have to do” or a “want to do”? Hopefully it was a combination of all three. Like finding time to be with the family. I mean really spend time together. I’d say that is an all 3 situation. But most days it is hard to say if my time was well spent in that regard. As a mom I wonder that a lot. So, we’ve decided to start doing a weekly/biweekly hike in the woods, outdoor adventure of some sort. Time together as a family, no distractions, except for nature, and a few snacks along the way. And maybe on those days life will feel like it slows down, just for a little while.
