Sometimes in life you come to a crossroads and the signs posted don't really tell you which way to go. At those moments the most important thing to do is STOP. Take your eyes off the "signs" and look at where you are. Often there are multiple paths to the same destination, it's just up to you which route you want to take.

So look around and see where you are, where you want to be, and head that way.

Girly Treat

Treated myself (and my daughter) to a mani/pedi yesterday. We are headed out after work today for our annual "Girls Weekend". There will be five of us. My mother-in-law, sister-in-law, cousin-in-law, and my daughter will join me at an inexpensive LaQuinta with a nice outdoor pool for the whole weekend. Sun, cards, facial masks, laughter, reading, and sharing between generations are in store.

Restoration and recharge - here I come!

Summer Slump

I am suffering with the summer slump. I have plenty to do and yet I am completely unmotivated for any of it. I do try to walk most mornings, but that's about it. When I get home from work all I want to do is sit, doze, crochet (I am finishing my son's "college" blanket), and watch television or sit and stare out the window.

I have blamed it on the humidity, on the heat, on the news, on the whatever the excuse of the moment is.

The truth is I am in emotional limbo. Everything will change next month when both my boys leave for college and my daughter starts high school. The fact is it has already changed and I think I'm just in denial.

But it's okay, I'm giving myself permission to be here for this season. It will end soon and I'll be back on track.
