Summer Like a Wrecking Ball

Yep, it's here.  Every year I think I'm going to miraculously manage to be fully invested in summer and the farm and yoga and my business, and it's all going to go so smoothly and nothing will fall through the cracks, and I'm going to feel incredibly chill about the whole thing. 

And then, you know, reality arrives.  And every year it's the same.  Which means I admire my optimism, but I kind of wonder why I never seem to pay attention to past precedent.  Maybe I'm like the SEC:  past results are not indicative of future performance.  And so on June 1 I think maybe this is the year I keep it all together!  But yeah, no.  Instead it's been a month since I posted a blog, and my stitch marker necklace is *still* not listed on my website, and my (possibly actually great) new crochet idea is still in my head and not in my hand.  But it's always because summer is for family, and this is the last summer we're going to driving the youngest member of my little family around to endless baseball tournaments and hanging out with a kid who isn't just about to run off to college. 

So instead of having all of my plates equally in the air I'm leaning in to family and baseball and fun.  And I'm keeping everything else going, albeit on half speed, and will return rejuvenated to get everything running strong at the end of summer.  And in the meantime, my husband this kid and I are at baseball fields near and far, and I'm going to make sure I enjoy it.
