#anchorword RECHARGE

It's been far too long since my last post! Oh, blog how I've missed you.... well sort of... 

The end of the school year hit me like a ton of bricks this year. Everything seemed to be moving at break-neck speed and the moment one task was checked off of my list, five other pressing tasks magically appeared. The moment that school was out and I was officially on summer break, I sort of disappeared from the Internet and social media. The 'to-do' list of tasks continued at home for the first weeks of break and I absolutely didn't feel like I had rested or recharged my batteries - which I'll need when I head back to teach summer school in July!

It took me a little time, but I retreated from the 'to-do' list at home too and have finally settled into a holding pattern of doing as little 'real work' as possible, spending time with my family, reading, drinking iced coffee on the porch, going to the pool, visiting family, barbecuing on the grill.... It feels nice... but now I have less than a week before I'm back at summer school. If only time would slow down a little... 


How do you #recharge your batteries and relax? Seems like it shouldn't be so hard...
