I’m going to milk the hell out of this graphic because I love it.
Monday. We’ll load up the rental truck with all our worldly belongings and hit the road. We are packing furiously now. I’ve been running all over Portland this week, doing errands and taking care of last minute business. It has felt fantastic to check items off my to do list, it sort of helps burn the “freak out” energy that is keeping me from sitting still.
I am super freaking out. Mostly in a good way. This is how it works for me. Getting things done and being productive helps burn the “freak out” energy in a positive way, as opposed to a neurotic, destructive bad way. Not that that ever happens to me. Sigh.
“Freaking out” also means I am super excited. We have Plans, yo. Big Plans with a capitol “P.” We’re making lists of things we want to do this summer. Dave wants to learn how to make bread. He’s going to make pickles and cheese and brew his own beer. He’s going to work on his blogs, make good food and drink lots of coffee and beer.
I’m going to paint little paintings. I’m going to rebuild this blog. I’m going to write, take lots of photos, and learn how to make homemade pasta. I’m going to build websites for people, and they are going to pay me money. We’re going to go on a lot of walks. We’re going to explore the coast. We might get a puppy. This is our summer.
Have you thought about it? What you would do? What would you do if you could take the summer off? Where would you go? What have you always wanted to try doing, but never had the time?
