Relaxing Summer? What’s That?

Summer is supposed to be about relaxing, right? Not for us! Yesterday’s Summer Solstice may have been the official start to Summer, but I definitely didn’t have a chance to slow down and relax. I never imagined I would be a newly homeschooling mother at the same time my home business would see huge growth. The hours have been long, but I’m hustling along, doing my best to stay organized and on track.

June has been full of birthdays, including my own newly 4 year old, Father’s Day, and graduations. I between all the events, I’ve split my time between our choice to begin homeschooling in June for a year round schedule, designing and creating products, and trying to keep my home from turning into tornado alley.

Ben mentioned taking a vacation at the end of June, and we both quickly laughed the idea away. He has been just as busy with his own work schedule as well as a slew of doctor’s appointments. He will be 1 year cancer free in July, but as a diabetic with 1 kidney, the number of appointments with specialists are piling high. One glance at my calendar, and nope, a vacation isn’t going to happen until September at the earliest. At least homeschooling gives us the option to travel when the crowds are smaller and rates are offseason!

I’m learning to streamline and shortcut in every aspect of my life, in every way I can. My hustle to be a great girl boss may be strong, but this girl still needs to find some time to unwind and enjoy life!

  1. There is never a relax moment as a parent! I think a relaxing trip to Disney World is in order (maybe I should say “fun” instead of relaxing).

  2. Being a parent will always make you busy and it is really hard to find a time to relax. Last summer has been the busiest summer of my life. I’ve done a little bit of travelling too but I always had to schedule my work and even work while i travel.
