June! It’s finally here! No more snow, no more ice, just warm weather and opportunities for beach time. But, this wonderful time of year brings distractions that take me away from writing.
My alone time has vanished. My children are all around me again - each and every one of them; and my husband, who just got laid off from work, wants to spend time with the everybody before the next job comes along. (Please pray or send good vibes that one does soon).
I have a family who loves each other and actually wants to spend time together. That’s truly a blessing. A blessing I very much appreciate. I shouldn’t complain (but you know I will anyway). With all these people around (aka my wonderful family), I rarely have that quiet time I used to enjoy when I woke up early or got home from work.
I suppose instead of griping about it, I’ll enjoy this one last summer when I’ll have my children surrounding me and while my hubby’s at home (before he vanishes into the work force again.)
The book can wait for a bit and I’ll appreciate those noiseless moments even more when they happen over the summer. That is if I’m not sulking about my entire family doing something other than spending time with me.
Will your writing slow down over the summer? Do you have any great plans for the next few months?
