the cottage is a peaceful place - it's got all the comforts of home, but the place forces you to slow down, the kids absolutely love the water, it's clear and shallow near the shore, it's fun to just loaf around, yeah I do that once in awhile. I think if I didn't have kids I wouldn't take a break.
lliam is off to day camp today for a few weeks, he's really excited and there's a bit of trepidation - the questions around dinner time is
- will I have to pee in the bushes
- will the lake have leaches
- how long will I be gone
I think the word camp is associated with some of those things, and I tell him, it's at the community centre, they will have flushing toilets, no leaches - you will be in an indoor pool - you will only be gone for the day. before I sat down to blog, j was showing me lliam's lunch and snacks - I said "geez he's only gone for the day" - I am trying out a new routine this week - which started at the cottage, try to go to bed earlier (not 3am) and to wake up earlier, I did the calculation and it's equal to the same amount of hours working that I'm doing now - it's tempting to work late because there's no distraction. I will see how it goes, we are getting prepared for lliam's full day at school come september.
