Waiting for Routine

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I never quite realized just how much of a creature of habit I am. Not necessarily in the details of everyday, but rather in the quiet hum and flow of life in general. Summer threw me a curve-ball. You would suppose that after spending almost seven years with at least one kiddo in tow at all times, that my "normal" would revolve around the buzz of little voices filling the house. On the contrary, I've felt a little bit lost without my alone time this summer. {In much the same way that I felt "a little bit lost" when they first trotted off to school last fall.}


Having my two little "P"'s at home with me is a joy and blessing. I soak in the minutes that we spend together and am all too aware of days that slip past without so much as a wink and a nod. And my heart reels with the reality that one day I will wake up each morning with far too much time for "me."

We just pulled back in from a trip to Florida LATE Sunday night-- and the icing on the vacation cake is that my littles are sniffling and sneezing and needing an extra dose of patience and love from me while their bodies heal. In the middle of a tornado of unpacking, laundry and cleaning I'm choosing to play a board game, snuggle in for a movie, make them an extra snack. It may not be my normal, but while I'm waiting for my routine to swing back into effect, I'll gratefully enjoy the interruption.

P.S. And just because I love Disney World-- and I've been waiting anxiously to blog about it, I'm about to open the Disney blogging floodgates with some reviews and tips over the next month. Get ready...to plan a vacation. ;)
