settling into summer

well hello there.
you know that point when something’s got to give?
the one when the plate is just so full that something gets pushed right off the side?
right over the edge?
yes. of course you do.

i got there when jake finished school for summer a few weeks ago.
so delightful. no homework or school schedules to navigate.

overwhelming. a teenager home. for weeks. and a job. and a toddler. to navigate.
admittedly i’d rather have this issue than the other, but of course what gives is -
well, you know what gives when the family-plate is full.
you give.
so the blog? well, anyway, i’m here now.
