Once A Gym Tale was sold and my last day of work was decided upon, Alan and I booked a cottage so that we could take two weeks to really let go of time pressures and our to do lists. For the past two weeks we have enjoyed complete freedom from schedules. We have spent so much time outdoors on the beautiful days and reading books and watching movies on the rainy days. No pressure to do everything. Simply doing what we choose each day. Some days have been busy running, kayaking, playing games, fishing, camp fires and anything else we could squeeze in before dark. Other days, we have just played in the water and cuddled on the couch. It really has been such a wonderful start to a new chapter in our lives as well as a new pace of life. We have all had a chance to unwind and to lose track of the days. For us, the perfect start to summer.
