Sometimes it seems that resting is not something I am allowed to do. With all the events of the past week, and preparing for a funeral on Tuesday, life has taken an unexpected turn. And with that turn it seems I am required to reorient myself with the world. I didn't see that turn coming, and I don't know when this reorientation period will be over.
So here I sit at my parents house. I am hiding in an up-stairs room, away from the kids and family and the general ruckus that accompanies them. These things are not bad things, on the contrary, it really has been a pretty good weekend all together. Aside from the 5 hour drive I had to make by myself, things here have been good. If there was any one thing I am looking forward to, though, its a little down time.
A person might think that is hard to come by when I am going to be bringing my 8 year-old son to the house. But truthfully, he is a good boy and I'm looking forward to some father-son time. A walk in the woods, going to the marina and seeing the boats, the park, watching a movie or two. Yes, its going to be a good week. I need it. I think a lot of people need it, I just happened to get lucky enough to get it.
So I have the next week off and I am hoping to find a little bit of energy and spirit that I seemed to have lost recently.
Its going to be a good week.
