The Art of Being

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 9:09 am

This is the first summer I haven’t worked since the summer I was pregnant with Monkey Girl.

And that was the first summer I hadn’t worked since I was in 8th grade.

However, this summer, I decided to just chill and spend time with the monkeys.

The result?

Our July calendar.

Not a thing scheduled.

In fact, the only thing that is really scheduled this summer is taking Monkey Girl to summer music camp, but that’s over by 9:45 every morning.

Don’t really need to write it down.

Let’s look at January, for comparison.

Can I just say how much I am enjoying this July?

We do what we want, when we want.

And, if we don’t feel like doing anything…

…we don’t.

Monkey in the Middle is having a bit of a transitional issue with this summer, as he is a schedule boy. 

All about the rules.

The schedule.

Things happening a certain way.

But, even he is enjoying the fact that when he says “Wanna play a game,” I can say “Yep,” instead of, “Ooh, we gotta go in 10 minutes.”

So, when, in September, my co-workers ask what we did this summer, I’m just gonna say “we just were.”

And when they say “were what?”

I’ll say “ourselves.”
