Our fearless leader Jamie has offered up this question this morning.."What is your spirit wishing for?" Well off the top of my head..not to be ill..I feel horrid this morning..ackkkk. Given a little more thought..I really need a vacation..two weeks with nothing to do. Right here at home..for two whole weeks without anyone else in my home but my own family..sleep in and do what ever I want. A week just isn't enough..I need two full weeks I think.
For years now I have been working full time and for the last several I have been running my own preschool and after care program here at home and also the artwork. I have kids here as early as 6:30 am daily and as late as 6pm. Although I did take three mornings off this year..which has been heavenly...I am working then too. All of this is good..I am happy and thankful I have work!! But after years of this..I really,really, really need a vacation.
This summer I took a full week off.. I ended up with the swine flu two days in and was sick as a dog the whole week. When did I feel better?. The first day kiddos where back! Last year and this I planned to take two full weeks during the holidays. Due to the economy last year I ended up taking kiddos most of that time anyway just to pay the bills. This year..I lost a couple of clients, one had a baby and the other's schedule changed..but it left me very short for the month sigh...so I will be taking kiddos during those two weeks again this year.
So...I need a vacation..I really do..every part of me needs one..my spirit, my body and my mind..all need a bit of a break. So..today my spirit wishes for a vacation. Yup that would work & maybe a day in there at the spa....mmmmm.... Namaste, Sarah
