My Blogging Break

A lovely blogger helped me frame my thoughts of the last several weeks of silence on my own blog.  I simply just needed margin.

It’s been a very busy last six weeks, and there’s too much to recount here in this post, yet I will list out broad strokes.

  • I moved!  Now I live in a 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom duplex and I’m closer to work.
  • I finished summer camp with DII.  I learned that I’m ready for a 30 hour work week this fall, but that 5 weeks of intense daily remediation with students is very taxing on my body.
  • I vacationed!  A quick long weekend to Michigan simply to eat and be was very lovely.
  • I asked for help.  Chels and I received so much help in meal prep, cleaning and moving.  I’m thankful for others with margin, who offered their help.
  • I had a doctor’s appointment.  I added medication to help deal with my seasonal allergies and a more intense regiment to help wipe out candida.

Now that my busiest part of the summer is over, I have the opportunity to take David Whyte’s words seriously:

We are rested when we let things alone and let ourselves alone to do what we do best; breathe as the body intended us to breathe, to walk as we were meant to walk, to live with the rhythm of a house and home, giving and taking through cooking and cleaning.

And with a return to my slower, daily rhythms means more time to write as well.  Thanks for reading and for waiting when even words need to wait.
