Juggling

Its starting to rev up...the holiday season I mean...
and we are juggling...juggling money and work schedules and flight schedules and sleeping arrangements and..and..and...
Its busy, even stressfull... but fun...or it will be soon....right??
Next week most of my family will be getting together for Thanksgiving in Jacksonville, FL. We can't wait to see each other...to be together again...if only for a couple of days. Of course lots of juggling is involved.....:)
It will be the first time we have all been together since the wedding in April, but before that we hadn't been all together in about a year and a half so no holidays for a while. We haven't even seen Bek & James since April...a few dear faces will be missing ....but ahhh, that's life....what is new is that we are travelling to them this year...
....we'll get to have a few days off... we'll get to drive a lot....we'll get to see most of our kids...we'll get to see Jadabear...we'll eat a lot...we'll shop a little...and if we manage it just right...it will all have that oil we were talking about the other day and will actually be mostly pleasant and enjoyable...
Its a lot of work to make these things happen.....but that's just what you do when you really want something....you juggle...

Today was a perfect fall morning.....chilly...foggy...leaves carpeting the front lawn from the rain yesterday...and a friendly squirrel sitting on the corner of my roof eating an acorn and lording over me the fact that he was completely out of reach. ha!
No worries for him..he has tons of acorns buried in my yard...no juggling required...
Somedays I wouldn't mind being a squirrel.....:) Hopefully next Thursday won't be one of them.

Isn't life a big juggle? We do ok until one of our balls drop and then we tend to fall apart. Great thought today - I hope your time with your family is super and you come home feeling saturated by their love, your heart full and ready to juggle somemore...

I eat lunch with a group of squirrels almost every day...really, real little furry ones. They are so cute.
