I read this morning there are 13 weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day. I want those times to fun and memorable for me and my family but I struggle with balancing doing nothing, with feeling like I should do something, with life is short, with my homebody DH, with my friends are a priority for me, with I have things I need to accomplish, with it’s too hot, too far, too expensive. Well, you see my inner battle.
I’m tempted to assign weekends to these activities I want to do this summer because I know in my life I have to be intentional on scheduling almost everything to ensure it gets done but again, that seems to go against the whole flow of summer. It’s a little too much hustle.
Here’s my list of things I have done and still hope to do this summer. Add yours to the comment section. Let’s see if we can do some together!

I wanna learn how to can fruits and veggies with Kelly, too, if she’s ok with that. That’s one of the things I’ve really been wanting to learn.
Of course! She doesn’t know how to do it either but we’ll all give it a try!
