The emails! Good Lord, the emails!
And we homeschool! If the kids were actually IN school, I might just have to wave the white flag and hide under my bed for the month.
So we've been running the gauntlet here - David's birthday, Father's Day, Boy Scout Court of Honor BBQ and pool party (that's right, just pile it on), Civil Air Patrol awards banquet, just to name a few. At some point, things should settle down this week, just in time for (have I mentioned this enough yet, Larry?) MY BIRTHDAY.
|Am I supposed to WANT to be foxy at fifty? Why?|
50. I'm turning 50.
I'm torn - I could plan a few fun (but inexpensive) things to do with my friends to celebrate. OR I could simply make guest reservations for a private room/cell this weekend at a nearby monastery (ah, the quiet! The blessed quiet!) to give myself time to reflect on what half a century means and what my plans are for the 20 good years I might have left. Also? Just to get away (have I mentioned the quiet?).
Votes? Opinions? Ideas? All are welcome.
