I went to eat dinner tonight at my parents cottage and grabbed my purse on the way out the door, ugh! It weighed a ton! That's when it hit me...."real" life weighs a ton! I have not even left yet and I am already weighed down. Can you see the sad face I'm making? All the trappings of "real" life are going to hit me one by one as I head south over the next few days. There will be no more looking out of windows at the water or the open fields in my yard and breathing fresh air. No more long walks on the sandbars with Sadie until next summer, if we both survive "real" life for the next 8 or 9 months. No more open windows with curtains blowing in the breeze. I will no longer be surrounded by close friends and family. No more carefree lifeystyle that seems to fit my nature.
|Yes, Sadie, we will both miss this daily ritual!|
Stay tuned for some "real" life in the next couple of weeks. Until then, I will sleep well tonight...with the windows open and the cool breeze to keep me comfortable!
