I must confess, I could use some rest

I must confess

Today is the first official day of my son Jake’s spring break. I’ve decided to take a little vacation with him next week. I’ve been running pretty hard for the past few months with work, taking care of my kid and just dealing with life.

You saw what my week was like last week with the My Week in Pinterest post. Its beeen non-stop like that for months and with Jake’s break coming up, it seemed like the right time to slow down a bit and spend some quality time with a 9 year old boy. The time goes so fast these days that sometimes I feel the need to stop, take a breath and be more in the moment.

We’re going to spend some time doing the things that people save up for months to do when they come to Florida. We’re going to play tourist for awhile and see parts of our state that we don’t get to see everyday.

So we’ll see in you in April after our break. I’m sure I’ll have many Jake stories to share, updates on my work and hopefully, some revelations about my authentic journey when we get back.

Sing us out into the break Jimmy …

Squalls out on the gulf stream
Big storm’s comin’ soon
I passed out in my hammock
And God I slept till way past noon
Stood up and tried to focus
I hoped I wouldn’t have to look far
I knew I could use a bloody Mary
So I stumbled next door to the bar
And now I must confess, I could use some rest
I can’t run at this pace very long
Yes, it’s quite insane, I think it hurts my brain
But it cleans me out and then I can go on
There’s somethin’ about this Sunday
It’s a most peculiar gray
Strollin’ down the avenue
That’s known as A1A
Feelin’ tired, then I got inspired
I knew that it wouldn’t last long
So all alone I walked back home
Sat on my beach and then I made up this song
And now I must confess, I could use some rest
I can’t run at this pace very long
Yes, it’s quite insane, I think it hurts my brain
But then it cleans me out and then I can go on

      • Oh that would have been fun and then we would get to see shots in instagram. Hope you get to go sometime soon. Isn’t it fun to be a tourist sometimes? We’re going to Universal Studios one day and spend the dsy riding ride. I don’t care how many times we go, its still cool to be there.

  1. Our spring break was last week – and I really enjoyed it cause Mr. T went to spend it with his grand parents! I had 2 days totally free of him, so even though I still had to work, it felt good! Hope you guys have fun!!

    • Thanks we will!
      My son spends his time moving back and forth from his dad’s house and ours so I get these small pockets of time to be alone. So I get what you’re saying about the break. I usuallu end up working late but there’s something relaxing about having that alone time.

      • What’s the expression, sometimes all you want is one moment of quiet and then when you get it, you miss all the noise! I love the little breaks, don’t get me wrong, I do, but the house is always way too quiet!

      • I know what you mean but I do find those breaks are when I can be the most productive. I like to use that time to work on all that stuff that I can’t ever get to. Some days I’m ok with a little bit of quiet.

Let me know, what do you think?
