Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes a day or two in advance of this post going up. (I’ll eventually get to actually writing on Saturdays.) For now, though, I’m setting my timer, pre-writing my post and scheduling it to go up so my fine blog friends can link up on Saturday mornings. Or Sunday, if that’s easier for you.
So, the rules….
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
We’re finally home for a full weekend. No random trips to the zoo, camping, beach, lake or anything else that sounds (and is) a load of fun. We’re all just home.
And it feels so good. I need to sleep in my bed for a few weekends in a row to decompress from the flurry activity we’ve seen this summer.
One of my oldest friends (oldest in terms of how long we’ve been friends) is in town with her family, so I’m sure we won’t be bored this weekend. We’re rarely bored! And hopefully if the weather cooperates, we can get to Splasheville at some point. Or maybe Biltmore for some wandering? Maybe we’ll just hang out in our own little yard for the weekend.
Whatever it is, we won’t be bored. But we also won’t be rushing from here to there. We can take things at our own pace. Visit our local tailgate market. Do all of the simple errands that we’ve somewhat neglected the past several weeks.
School is starting back in less than a month. My husband has barely had a summer between working and conferences and being an educational rock star. (We joke about this title I’ve given him.) He’s “supposed” to have summers off. I think many people underestimate how much teachers work during the summers. They really don’t have that time off. And they aren’t paid for it.
And with the start of school, we’ll celebrate my son’s third birthday. I can’t believe THAT is about to happen. It’s been so fun to watch him become his own person. Oh how he’s his own, fiercely independent and opinionated person!
