My last day of work was May 28. I had worked at the same company for 13 years. It was a major decision for me. I just kept thinking of all the things I would get done since I was no longer working! Well, I was wrong...sort of!

I am enjoying time with my boys. I am enjoying watching them be able to sleep in this summer. I am enjoying taking them to ALLLL their baseball games and practices with a snack in their tummy and not having to rush to get them and feeling guilty for leaving work early 3 or 4 times a week! I am enjoying taking them to the library to pick out books. I am enjoying preparing meals for them without being so rushed when I got home from work.

During the day I feel like I am constantly moving. I feel guilty for sitting down! There are so many things I would like to do, but feel like just doing the bare minimum can be overwhelming some days!

As you can tell, I still do not have a lot of time for blogging! What I have found is that in the evening used to be the time when I would run around like a crazy lady to get things done for the next day. However, since I am able to get things done during the day, I can sit down in the evenings and relax and not feel guilty.

We are all still adjusting, but so far so good! I am planning to cover another maternity leave from September - December, but just two days a week and I will be home when the boys get home!

This summer is flying by so fast! I wish it would slow down just a little!

Mini-Relay for Life

Instead of a "Field Day" at the end of the school year, Connor's school is now participating in a mini-relay for life. Every year they have a theme and each grade sets up a booth for the other children to visit. They have three rotations where they work, play and walk. They sale luminaries to raise money. This year the elementary raised $7,000.00! What a great learning experience for these kids! I love that the school is doing this! Everyone somehow, someway has been affected by cancer.
