Busy

The end is in sight. Summer is fast approaching and this has been one of the busiest years I've ever had. I was thinking about the definition of busy the other day and chuckled to myself when I used to think I was sooo busy in high school...or college...or my first year of teaching (THAT was actually probably the only year that I was as busy as I was this year...I was teaching, planning a wedding, and writing a master's thesis all at the same time)...or the year I had Connor. And now I find myself working full-time, taking care of a house, managing my family's schedule, and raising three kids. And I'm sure some day when I have three high schoolers living with me, I'll think, "NOW I am busy."

The conclusion I've come to is that busy is relative.

It is ESPECIALLY relative when you have such adorable reasons to be busy.
I wouldn't trade my busy life for any life filled with relaxation, tons of time with my hubby, and a million hours to get everything done. Ever.
But, thankfully, because I am a teacher, I do get to trade two months of busy for middle-of-the day naps, trips to disneyland, visits with my friends, and day dates at the hubby's work while the kids are in school. And even more thankfully, I only have 13 more days with students before that becomes my reality.
