This is going to be a super short post (let’s see if I can really do a short one) or let’s see how much I get done before I have to light a fire under Nico to get him to move.
Let me first say, I am sorry that I have been MIA lately. I know I said that I would be until after Labor Day but I still feel bad. I miss the blogs I read and will have a boat load to catch up on. In RL, I miss the friends and my sisters that I normally see or chat with. This time of year slams me like everyone else with the getting into the groove of school, football and cheerleading starting.
Today Gia goes to meet the teacher and yes, I am a little weepy that she is going to be in school three days a week this year but it’s time. She is ready to be with kids her own age and so am I. Tomorrow, I have a meeting at Tommy’s school with all of his teachers about CF. I hate those meetings. I am dreading it. The rest of the week I am going to cram all of summer into three days and hopefully do some fun things with Gia.
That is the chaos part. The excitement part is that I am working on a few projects with my writing that I am thrilled about. I am not quite ready to share yet but will soon. I’m trying to balance the kids, the house, the blog, and the deadlines for these projects and I know I can do it but since I never have, it’s been an adjustment.
Now, if I could just get out of my own way, my dreams might actually come true.
I want to leave you with one thought that became very clear to me this weekend. Doing something small for someone might end up being something big to them. Sometimes all it takes is a friendly smile and a genuine “How are you?”
I tell my kids every morning, “The world is full of mean people. Don’t be one of them.”
So, how’d I do? Short post? For me, I’d say yes.
Have a great day!
