In the last two days I have had three people tell me that they see me as this woman with a busy agenda. Really? For those of you who have been with me since my teaching days, you know what busy looked like. Those days were insanely busy, with n’er a moment to breath. That was one reason I knew I had to get out of education, I couldn’t keep living like that, and keep living.
I was like a cartoon character who just kept going and going. Now, I have time to do things, like relax.
I can choose my tasks, like the history project for our church. I can take off, at a moment’s notice, and take care of my grandchildren. I have lunch with my girlfriends. Terry and I can get away for our anniversary. Yesterday I spent three hours on the phone with my sister. Wore out three phones! Life is just not so zany, to me, anyway. Maybe others see me still busy. And, perhaps still zany.
