With the summer nearly over, I’ve decided that it is time to take a week and unplug. For one week Resourceful Mommy will be populated with “Best of…” posts, and I will not be hosting any Twitter Parties for an entire week. Pick your jaw up off of the floor. It’s true. I swear.
I will be answering emails via my Blackberry only as needed, and only once or twice a day. I will not turn on a computer. Period. Instead I will float on a lake with my daughter next to me on our raft, drive a boat past beautiful, dark green trees with deer lapping the water along the shore, and build sand castles with my son. I will collect fresh water oyster shells in a bucket and play board games at night with my parents while we eat S’mores. I will take my children to their daddy’s home town and they will meet their cousins for the first time. I’ll probably get a sunburn. It’s Texas. It happens.
Then I will return refreshed, renewed, a little happier, a little pinker (I don’t tan), and ready to face another school year with crazy schedules and days that at once fill me with the joy of professional endeavors and the hollowness of children departed, off to learn and in the care of their teachers.
Have a great week and catch you on the flip side.
