I hit a wall! Everything was piling up. Kids were picking at each other. Tim was exhausted. There was no peace.
I called a time out.
Bought supplies, and Tim and I checked out.
We didn’t get away to our usual place, it was booked up. We found someplace close to home.
Would like to say we came home relaxed, refreshed, with a fully restructured plan and the umph to get moving on it. We didn’t.
We did have a break from the grind. Maybe it will help everything be more manageable.
Sweet thing about staying closer to home. We were able to get home in time to take the kids fishing.
Fred caught a bullfrog. Thought for a bit that the frog was going to have him head first in the lake, but he persevered.
Maggy is turning into quite the fishin’ girl. This is her biggest catch of the day. One of six this gal pulled in.
Fred was an awesome big brother and managed to climb out and unhook Maggy’s line. It was close a couple times of him going swimming.
I remembered I had forgotten my salt shaker, again, when I found my feet covered in leeches. Asked for hip waders for my anniversary, lol.
When it was time to hike out the sun came close to say good night. Looked like I could have reached out and picked it up out of the water.
What a wonderful renewing weekend! Tonight I will rest, and tomorrow, it’s not here yet, so for now rest.
