I demand a 'slow down'.
Throw some speed bumps out there.
How about some rumble strips.
I'd even go for the cops flashing their blue lights at me...you know, the warning flash of blue telling you that you had better slow your roll before you have the joy of being pulled over and humbled with a ticket. (yes, I may have had a flash or
Slow me down...there's just been too much going on.
How in the world do people do it?
People who have to get up, get ready, get children ready, leave the house and do stuff, or work, everyday...as in, all week.
Ella had dance camp last week and it wore me out. But that wasn't all. There were other things that went along with that...we were out a lot last week.

And I am so thankful that I don't have to be anywhere the other four weekdays, until...
Uh oh. Until August.
In August, the kids will start going to Mother's Day Out and my Wednesday Bible Study will start back up. That's three days of going and doing.
I will have to get better about planning ahead. I haven't really had to do that for...good grief...it's been just over a year. I've been so 'go-with-the-flow' for so long that I'll need to retrain my brain.
And yes, I believe you can teach an old dog new tricks. (I must believe)

I'm looking forward to being at home...
...which is really clean because we had a showing Saturday night...
...which was perfect timing because I'm hosting Bunco at my clean house this week...
...which is actually tonight so the rest of my week will be s-l-o-w...
...slow enough for naps when the kiddos are napping...
...naps that 'refuel' me - just like the cars when the Caution Flag is out.
Here's to slowing down before a ticket is issued.
