The boys are back in school after vacation. Christian is away for work. The house was very quiet today. Lot's of running the kids around after school. That's pretty normal for this time of year. It's just that it feels like a shock to the system after this past year of slowing down. The 80's … Continue reading Purple Ball
After a good nights sleep, I woke up with a new perspective. I told myself, Pam, you don't have to do anything you don't want to do. And then I thought about that. I don't have to write a blog post, I don't have to do my morning pages. I don't have to be good. … Continue reading A new day.
