When grandchildren come to stay for a while, it feels a little like Hubby and I are trying to jump on a moving train! Life suddenly gets hectic and moves at a much faster pace. So, we have to “run” to get “up to speed”.
Nikki (16) and Jay (15) are here for their spring break and we are busy. It brings back memories from when we had teenage children at home — never enough hours in the day. Things that you just don’t get to do, because there just isn’t enough time!
So on the one hand, all this activity makes me feel like there is a plug in my side that holds in my energy reserves and that it has suddenly been removed and all of my energy has drained out! (We sleep like the dead!)
But on the other hand, having teenagers in the house brings us a different, fresh energy that is exciting. “What’s for dinner?” “Do I have time to get a haircut?” “We want to work out. Can we go to the gym?” “Yeah, I’ve wanted to see that movie! It’s at Cinema Grille? All the better!” . . . cell phones, texting, hair issues, teen fashion, favorite food requests. Whewww.
We’ll get our old energy back after they leave and we get back to our routine.
But during this week they are here, we’ll just enjoy living in the aura of young, fun energy that fills every corner of our space right now.
We love you Nikki and Jay!
