I’m neck deep in school books, lesson plans, goal sheets, boxes of new pencils…. Chris is neck deep in gear changes, and maintenance and obsessive weather watching. We start our school year when Chris leaves for Swordfish Season. It makes him being gone a little easier as the distraction of new books and this year’s plans take over our lives. But, it means the countdown to the last 10 days or so can get a little…..shall we say… intense? We are both running full speed but in totally different directions. We are distracted by our own lists, but still needing to connect to make sure everything on both sides is working. Send blessings of peace and patience my way, would you? I need both. And a drink. That might help too.
