It’s Friday. And today kicks off the last weekend of summer for me. I work next weekend (four 12 hour shifts in a row, please pray for me) after having a month off. Oh I know what you are probably thinking. “Stacey, you just had a month off! Aren’t you ready to go back to work? And have some adult interaction? And deliver miracles? It’s just so wonderful!” Yes, I am very blessed with a job where I get to be with families during the most important time of their lives, where I have awesome co-workers, and where I only have to work very part time to get great benefits and help support our family. I do not take it for granted. I love my job. I know it’s probably good for me to get out of the house every once in awhile. But I would stay at home full time if I could. Adult interaction? I can get that with coffee dates with friends. :)
So I am off to enjoy this beautiful weekend and not think about the work weekend out ahead of me. Or school starting and the return of rushing in the mornings and homework battles. I’m going to play in the lake and swim with the kids. I’m going to see family and hold an almost one-year-old. I’m going to sit in the sun and watch it set. And I’m going to chase some fireflies with my daughter.
Happy Friday, friends.
