Almost two-weeks into my summer off (at least off from being a parent) and time is going by quickly. Last summer, while the girls were at camp I was busy doing PT two-three times a week to recover from ACL replacement. Nothing like that this summer, it’s kind of like having my summer off.
It’s not to say nothing is getting done, it is. It’s just a different feeling than last summer, or even two summer’s ago (the girls’ first summer at camp). Two years ago, I was just starting my job so there was a lot to learn and lot’s of running around. Last year it was all the PT. This year, it’s actually time to just take a breath.

And coming off the year, at least the first six months of 2013 that we had, time off is not so bad. Between my second knee surgery (and extended PT), 13.0’s Bat Mitzvah and 10.5’s break-out violin year-we did a lot.
So now I get letters 4-5 times a week from the girls, we talk once a week and we’re all able to just unwind-not so bad.
So yeah, I still have a lot of work to do. I have a heavier travel schedule over the summer than I carry during the year and I’m still trying to get a few projects done around the house. But in the end, so far, my summer “off” is pretty good.
