Goodbye finding rogue Christmas decorations that have blended in too well with my clutter that I hadn't noticed to put them away during the big holiday clean-up.
Goodbye finally realizing that country life out in the sticks may not be for me.
Goodbye trying a new schedule that keeps my time on the computer to a minimum while being super-efficient - I'll share if it works 2-weeks in a row.
Goodbye scoring big at Target on 2 awesome cable-knit sweaters for $7.50 a piece!
Hello long, 4-day weekend.
Hello diving into Panama with my son for his school Spanish project - ay caramba!
Hello glue sticks, X-acto knives, scissors, tape, foam core, markers and poster board all weekend-long.
Hello wishing, hoping, and praying for snow, snow, and more snow so the school can go on a field trip that involves cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, and dog sledding - how cool is that, but it needs to SNOW!
Hello celebrating my family's Slava in honor of our family's patron saint, St. John.
|There is lots of tradition and symbolism in celebrating Slava. Pictured: Slava bread.|
|One day, just not today.|
If I ever did up-and-throw the towel-in on my suburban life and actually fulfill my dream of more land, more space, more time, and more fresh air, I realize I'd have to make a ton of adjustments. I'm just not ready to do that just yet. I need my current surroundings in suburbia because it's those conveniences that make my life more simple right now.
Happy Weekend and Sretna Slava!
