I should be writing, of pleasant
Dreams and the usual things,
The jester’s in court after all
I should be rhyming, words within
Reason while they’re in season,
One never knows when they’ll fall
Laboring efforts by a hand with a pen
Or fingers on keys, if only to begin
Dawn turns to dusk on another day
Stories unfold, as is their way
My desk bids me to sit, continue to stay
Surely I’ll finally find something to say…
I don’t usually mention my children on this blog, but I am going to say something now – It’s been three weeks of Christmas vacation for my children and they need to go back to school! Thankfully, that day comes Monday. I’m hoping that my brain returns to full function then, as well. I’ve had one truly productive day in this time, and that was only because they were at their grandparent’s house! Isn’t that awful? I simply need the peace and quiet, at least 20 minutes where I’m not being called upon for a snack, stop an argument between brothers, or soothe an upset child after a skinned knee or a forehead-meets-doorknob incident. Can anyone out there relate?
One great entertainment I’ve thoroughly enjoyed during this break time – my little guy has a penchant for story telling. He has been sharing stories with me nearly every day, and wow, he’s got a creative little mind! I love it. However, I’m very much looking forward to getting back to routine.
This year I have two professional objectives – write, write, write and grow my yoga business. I don’t make resolutions so much as I set goals.
How about you? Are you a resolution maker? Do you like to follow a routine? If you have kids, how long of a Christmas break do they get? Let’s chat…
