Well, it’s offically here! June. The month Summer begins. I love the month of June. My dad’s birthday is this month, Father’s day, the First day of Summer, Kids will be out of school in 2 weeks . . . the list goes on. I am looking forward to the change of pace around the house. But honestly, there is a bit of apprehension that goes along with Summer for me. For one, it means, ERRBODY in my household is home. Husband and kids. I work from home and having everyone at home creates another dynamic that I find hard to balance. I’ve been trying to think of ways to make things flow a little better (for everyone) around the house during summer break. I’ve been thinking that this summer, I will schedule specific work hours for myself. I am scouting good places to work from outside the home. I would love to partake in a co-working space, but I don’t want to have to drive too far to get there, and there are none in my immediate area . . . (ding! ☀Business Idea!! ☀) So it looks like I will be perusing local coffee shops and libraries. This summer I am putting the kiddies in a 1/2 day summer camp as well. They need more activities with other kids, and the opportunity to make new friends.
So how does your schedule change in the summer? Have you found a way to balance your schedule during the summer months?
Boy, have I been missing you guys!!! I feel I have been neglecting you, and not by choice! I have been going through a sort of “transitional” period. Both with my business and personal life. This is the last week of school for the kiddies. Yay!/Uh oh! There is a sense of excitement in the air, and also a slight apprehension on my part if I am honest with myself. I am only apprehensive because I know that my normal work day will have to adjust. Working from home is not all it’s cracked up to be. I am thankful for the opportunity, but having an actual dedicated room/office to work from is a must! Right now my bedroom is doing double time and it’s getting old real quick!!!!
But I digress, I am excited about spending unrestricted time with my family and doing fun “summer” things! This past weekend was a whirlwind. Rob ended up in the ER on Saturday night, due to a mishap with his elbow and the tooth of a 5th grader . . . Long story, but he is recovering nicely. On Sunday we went to the NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) Open House. JPL specializes in robotic exploration of the solar system. We got to see 3D representations of the terrain on Mars, remote control robots that are used to scour the Mars surface and even a movie on what life is like on Mars! I did not know there was water on Mars!! Amazing universe we live in!
I am working on tech packs for my line this week. This is the part I generally do not enjoy about my job, but I have been telling myself that I actually DO enjoy this part, and guess what? . . . . its working!!!! ☺ I’m glad to be back and I hope your lives are blessing you daily.
What have you been up to lately? Do share!!! ♥♥♥
