Relaxing in the Summertime

Having worked a 9 - 5 job for my entire adult life, this is the first time I have not worked and get to enjoy the summer. My son is out of school for the summer (his first week off) and he's just "chill-axing" (that's what he calls it) upstairs while I am downstairs in the office with the windows open listening to the sounds of nature outside. Our dog, Sasha is next to me waiting to see what we're going to do next. Everyone in the house is in this relaxation mode. This is a mode that I have dreamed about for a long time and have never really experienced. Usually I would be running around like a crazy woman getting everyone off to where ever they have to be with the sustenance they would need for the day in their lunch bag and stainless steel water bottle. Today, I get to hang out with my son and my dog. We worked on the punching bag and tried some push-ups. We've discovered that I am not that great with push-ups unless it's the modified version, but I have all summer to work on that! I think we're going to take Sasha outside so she can chase her favorite green ball. Maybe she'll get to show off for her friend Buddy and bark at some squirrels. This would be a great day to read a book and just sit on the back deck. I know everyday this summer won't be like this so I am really going to savor this day and enjoy every moment of it!

Enjoy every moment yourself and be well...
