Break is always an interesting time for me. I have so many plans…only so much gets done.
I remember this break last year. I had a hundred plans. Things I wanted to get accomplished before the next term was underway. I wanted to get up early and work out in the mornings. I wanted to spend more time with the kids doing different projects. I had all kinds of things to get done for the school. I spent the majority of my time sleeping, watching movies, reading books…frustrated that I didn’t get more done, but just so TIRED!
This break has been a little bit more productive, though I have had my days where I just could not motivate myself enough to get anything done. I have spent some time with the kids, like I wanted to. I have gotten a few projects done that needed to get finished, like a yearbook that I procrastinated working on until the DAY it needed to be completed. I have gotten to hang out with Stacy and Kathy and Emily like I would with anyone back home, unconcerned about the worries of the ministry and just being fully me. I have watched some movies and TV shows and read books that I have wanted to get to for awhile. It’s been good.
This week starts my prep for getting ready to be back in school next week. And, I suppose, like every school break…I wish I had just a little more time. I’m not quite ready to be back in session yet, but the time is here, and so I’m getting prepared.
Goodbye break. Hello Term 3!
