June has eaten me alive

It’s been one of those months. The kind of month that sucks you in at the beginning, chews you up, and then spits you out the other side. There have been very few pauses in this crazy whirlwind of a month. A business trip to Toronto, a week of board meetings, a big event for our organization’s 25th anniversary (which I mc’d and did much of the organizing for), three weekend-long soccer tournaments (two of which were across the border into the States), multiple soccer games and/or practices almost every night of the week, meetings with out-of-town staff… I am exhausted. And chewed up into little bits.

This morning, when it occurred to me that Summer is officially upon us and I barely had a chance to slow down and enjoy Spring, I was left with an unsettled, dissatisfied feeling. It’s all slipping by too fast. I need to hit the pause button.

Fortunately, after this week is over (another busy week), soccer will end, work will slow down, and Folk Festival will be just around the corner.

On another note, I don’t know how much longer I’ll be blogging. It’s becoming less and less of a priority and interest.

I would miss you in the blog-realm! (I've missed you in June, too.)

I sometimes think that I'm done blogging too, but then something happens that I want to share. But seasons come and go and your blogging season could be over ... for now.

I'll see you at FF, can't believe its been a year since I saw you there last.
June. What a crazy time for a mom, and a woman.

don't quit.. just don't do it unless you are compelled.

Life does go by fast . . . .

I too am amazed at the speed of June's passing. Funny.. we wait all winter for this and then we forget to savor it. I too need to slow down and smell the roses.

And about the blogging. For me it does seem to be more of a winter sport. Nothing wrong with taking a break.

OK, now that I've read your comment about not blogging much longer I can confess that one of the reasons I have not yet read your link yet is because yes... blogging is not such a priority. I still want to do it, but in the grand scheme of things I need to be here, present and real in my human bodied life! That is more important. If I get to blogging, good and well, but I don't have it on the top of my list like I used to. I guess the trick is listening to what our heart is saying - write when we need to write, live when we need to do live!

Having said that, I hope you keep writing a little. The little I have read of your blog gives me the sense we see a lot of things the same way. :-)
