|This is where we like to rest. This time it was April 2012.|
Five minutes starts now. GO …
I don’t like to take naps. My mom says I didn’t like to when I was a kid either. I like to sleep, just usually from 10:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m., although I’d take a couple more hours into the morning, if my kids and life would just let me.
But I do like to rest.
I’m one of those Type-A people who uses “rest” — whether it’s watching a TV show, reading a book or scrapbooking — as motivation to get the work done. Yes, I’m a work-then-play kind of person.
I’m going to rest this weekend. At the lake. With my best friend and her family. We’re going to grill out food and play marathons of Settlers of Catan and Ticket to Ride. My girl and my friend’s girl who are a year apart are finally going to get to sleep in bunk beds in the same room, like they’ve been wanting. We have five kids in five years who have sibling-like relationships when we all gather together. They don’t know life without each other.
I haven’t known life without Jaclyn for more than 14 years. We’re going to rest together this weekend in a place that is only 20 minutes from our houses yet can seem like a world away. We’ll rest in the comforts of friendship with the peaceful backdrop of Kentucky Lake.
