We’re a week into summer and I’ve discovered that I don’t know how to relax. I’m done with work until August, the kids are done with school and I still act as though I have a certain amount of things done in a day or I’m crap.
I know I say this often…but what the hell is wrong with me?
I wake up stressed and anxious over all I “need” to get done when in reality the only thing I HAVE to do is take care of my kids. We can go swim, we can go minigolf, we can read, we can watch a movie, we can do whatever. But I am having a really hard time settling in. I’m all worried and anxious about the house being clean or the laundry being done or planning the golf outing or a million other things. I think after months and months of going full-speed, I’ve forgotten how to move into the slow lane.
Again, I ask you, what the hell is wrong with me?
I’ve been good about planning something run each day for the kids and I but really bad at taking time to just relax. My goal this summer was to have fun and relax. Why am I so bad at it? That’s part of what I am looking forward to on vacation—relaxing. There’s no laundry, no cleaning, just fun…but can I relax? I hope so.
Tomorrow I’m going to relax. I’m doing it if it kills me!!!
