I’m having a really hard time believing it’s already March. Maybe it’s the lingering sub-zero temperatures. Maybe it’s the snow that just won’t stop. Maybe it’s the fact that life has just been so hectic that it feels like we’ve been in a full-on sprint since Christmas.
And anyone who knows me knows exactly how I feel about sprinting.
But here we are. It’s officially spring and the high today was 9.
We didn’t even reach double digits.
And with a few really busy weeks stacked one on top of another recently, I honestly didn’t feel bad at all about spending a lazy weekend indoors building Lincoln Log houses with the kiddos, watching episodes of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown, playing video games (Stevie and I are revisiting the old Kingdom Hearts games and the kids have even started playing too). I even read a book this weekend–Theft By Finding by David Sedaris.
And you know what? It felt really good. Maybe I didn’t cross a whole lot of things off that endless to-do list we have around here but hey, I exterminated a damn mouse this week. I feel like that earned me a brief respite from adulting.
And as quickly as life is moving these days, sometimes a little downtime is good for the soul.
