But I'm happy to say that I've spent the last few days firmly within the arms of my family. It's been glorious.
|Helping my mom bake when I was little.|
I've pretty much stayed off-line and I really haven't missed it at all. I've been far too busy enjoying the company of my family.
I've loved every minute of it.
This is exactly what I've needed for the past few months. The summer heat, the drought we're in (it's even worse in western Nebraska, where I'm at now), and the battles with my health have taken their toll. I needed a change of scenery, and coming back home has been a wonderful antidote to my less than stellar emotional mood.
As it's Labor Day tomorrow, I don't have to work - hurrah! - though I do have a six hour drive ahead of me. That's ok. It's been worth it.
