Oh, I love this question! I hope everyone had many great aspects to their day today. I did! I took a beautiful bike ride, but only got halfway when I remembered that a friend had organized a ladies lunch/pool party, so I had to skedaddle back home quickly and head over for a fun few hours with friends in the gorgeous summer sunshine. Then I went home to do lots of ordinary organizing and kid carpools, etc, and now a lot of friends/families are heading to our town beach for picnic dinners to watch the sunset. I live in RI and we have typical blustery New England winters, so when summer rolls around, it is such a joy.
I am in the midst of worrying over some weird rib pain and a funny-feeling lymph node in my armpit, and so I am doing my best to just cram my days with fun stuff and not think about these things. I'm off for the summer (I teach a few classes at a university, but don't work in the summers). I've already "cried wolf" recently due to unusual headaches, and had a clear brain MRI, so I feel a little like a hypochondriac and want to wait these new pains out a little while before discussing with my MO. Keeping busy definitely helps. I kind of wish I was working, to keep myself super-busy, yet I'm enjoying the free time with my teens. Just got back from looking at a few colleges with my oldest. We had a great trip to Chicago for 3 days--such an awesome city, and wonderful to have some one-on-one time with him. Truly hoping that I'm lucky enough to see him and his sister through college. In the meantime, I'm savoring these gorgeous summer moments, and feeling really lucky in many ways.
I love realizing that we can all have so many different "best parts of the day"....from relaxing, to treasuring milestones like getting to drive again, to getting back to work! There are so many things to be grateful for. Best wishes to everyone!
