Juggling, priorities and the calm before the storm

Some days it's just nearly impossible to do everything you want to do. Some days, it's easier to just head home after work and actively ignore all the little niggling thoughts of....you know, you need to replace the garage keypad and you never did pull those weeds or clean the fridge. How about getting up from watching Arrow and take care of those things? On these kinds of days, my subconscious usually responds with a "oh, shut the hell up and let me relax." I've learned to indulge these moments, because usually what follows is a super productive day with plenty of energy to do everything that needs to be done. Life is short, nothing you "have to do" ever really goes away. There will be time (or not) to do them.

Memorial Day was a huge influx of people, but now it's quiet again. Plenty of parking spaces in town (during the week anyway). These two weeks are the calm before the storm. Schools haven't let out yet, well - some have - so the locals have a little reprieve. BUT, in two weeks, it will be like flipping a switch and the onslaught will begin. It will peak at July 4 and stay strong till mid-August. And it will fly by in the blink of an eye. Now is when my focus becomes sharp, because I want to feel and notice and appreciate every single day of summer, as I know how short it can be. Savor, savor. And I know this summer is going to be a memorable one.
