What is it about these days that leave me a bit unmotivated to write? The Lazy Days of Summer have been not quite so lazy for me, but the girls are sleeping in later and later, and I guess I have been too. I am sitting her mentally reviewing my to do list. We are packing up for a camping trip this weekend which will then rev us up for a week with the mister who is taking his vacation time from work.
Yesterday, my oldest made a comment about my personality, which is one where I have nothing planned and then all of sudden suggest something to do out of the blue--like an impromptu trip to the zoo or the pool. I like to play things by ear. I love spontaneity, it usually creates the best adventures. Most of the time, I have a plan in mind and then I spend a good bit of time convincing myself that it actually is a good plan and then all of a sudden inspiration and motivation converge and we are on our way. Which I suppose throws the planners into a tailspin.
My husband is a planner. He makes a plan and then about twelve other backup plans so the first plan is fail safe. He can see an accident waiting to happen from two miles out. It is much more difficult to spring things on him. While I am going with the flow, he is busy carving a path to follow.
One of the many ways that we are opposite but complimentary. As I mentioned, my husband is taking a week off from work next week. The camping trip is the only plan we have right now. I'm hoping inspiration and motivation converge and we end up having an awesome week full of little adventures. We are open to suggestions, so let us know what we should do with our unplanned week as a family!
