I must admit, my mind has been spinning all week, and I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. We landed last Sunday night, and it seems as if our lives went on full speed this week. I miss sitting on the Italian veranda looking over the sea in the warm sun. Awww…
My girls have been so busy with homework and events this week and I have been preparing to start my new job while trying to tie up loose ends with my old job. Meanwhile, we are rearranging all the bedrooms to make way for a new office space for me. My upstairs looks like a tornado came through…and by the way, we are having a slumber party on Friday night. What was I thinking?
Stephen took off for Washington DC today with a music tour that just started. I can’t even remember what tour it is.
Needless to say, we went from bliss to high impact, high speed life and I am feeling like there aren’t enough hours in a day.
I am trying to get my ducks in row…and all I hear is quack quack quack. I need to slow down the horse if you know what I mean.
Sometimes I resent this American lifestyle of business and rush rush rush. Seems like other cultures stop,and take time. Our culture is demanding. My kids, at such a young age, have so many demands on them with homework and activities. I don’t remember it being like this for me when I was growing up.
I realize some of this rush rush rush is me. I like to get things done. I like to see results. This is not always good though.
So today I am putting on the breaks, taking a siesta and following the Italian way. This is how you slow down.
You get some of this!
If you eat it too fast, you get a brain freeze.
Nobody wants a brain freeze.
