The phrase ‘June is busting out all over’ was surely written by a parent with school-aged children. Before the summer holidays begin, every end of year concert, fundraiser, family festival, and good time is held: in June. June collapses under the weight of FUN. On any given Saturday you could be in at least three different places: Treefest in town? Fundraiser? Or the show that was so good last year?
Last year, by the end of term, I was a wreck.
It’s meant to be fun!
So this year, I’m going for the bare minimum.
Gigs on three weekends, a party on the other, my book launch, a friend’s dance show, and my son’s sponsored walk, teacher’s gift baking.
Yep. This is the bare minimum.
I hope to make it to July – to freedom – without breaking myself. And just…breathe.
