Remember when I thought I’d be broadcasting live from Alabama last week? Well, obviously that didn’t happen. Last week didn’t turn out exactly like I’d expected. I knew I’d be busy with conference stuff during the day, but I truly thought I’d have plenty of free time as evidenced by the pile of stuff I packed to take with me:
The sad truth is that I packed all of my reading material before I even opened a drawer to pack the first article of clothing. Priorities, people. Needless to say, the only thing I accomplished by bringing the above stack on my trip was the upper arm weightlifting opportunities my overpacked bags afforded me. Even though it wasn’t really an opportunity to rest or recharge, it was a good week. That said, I’m very glad to be home. I was reminded last week of something I already knew: I’m a homebody. I like my little everyday world of trips to and from school and ballet lessons and grocery lists and recipes and laundry. It may not seem glamorous to most, but I think this life is a good fit for me. (Someone may need to remind me about that on Thursday when I’m complaining that I don’t know what to fix for supper!)
Speaking of laundry, I have a suitcase full of clothes that need to be washed so I can’t stay as long as I’d like. I hope to be back later today with a quick book review that I was supposed to post last week. (I have a book to give away, if you’re interested!) I did want to pop in quickly to let you know I’ve missed our little chats. Since I was missing my everyday life last week, I’d like to know what your favorite part of your everyday routine is. What’s your favorite part of your day?
