One week ago today was my birthday and I spent the day on my own…
Isn’t summer supposed to be when things slow down? Long, lazy days? Relaxed schedules? Well. Someone around here hasn’t gotten that memo because we’ve got a week that is absolutely FULL.
Last night we had a Kiwanis planning meeting related to September. Ugh. I hate that it’s June and we have to think about September but calendars and schedules fill up and we’re trying to get the word out about how awesome our club is and how much we actually do for the community and these things have to be planned in advance.
Tonight I have a work meeting and Dale has his monthly Civil War Roundtable group.
Wednesday night we have to go to a wake. This is not my story to tell but a good friend of mine lost her husband unexpectedly on Saturday. He was 51. In light of that I do feel the need to take a moment and say this: every day is precious, my friends, and tomorrow is not a guarantee. Do the things that make you happy right now.
Thursday night is the annual concert on our town common by Dale’s band. It’s one of my favorite shows of the year because I love seeing our entire town come out and enjoy the music and being together. Plus, it will be Jack’s first time hearing Grampa’s band and that’s very exciting for all of us!
Finally, on Friday night, there is a bench dedication that’s part of the Legends and Legacies event that honored our family last November. I’m quite sure, like everything else this committee does, that it will be a wonderful time.
Reading that over, I’m grateful for our active and busy social lives. I mean, really, only one of those evening activities is work related, everything else is about our community and the people that are part of it.
It’s a good problem to have, I think.
