Is "Busy" Really Better?

I've always been a busy person...I admit that I even thrive on it at times, though I'm not sure that's always a good thing. My rule of thumb has been to stay as busy as possible while Ryan is away because it seems to make time pass faster, which makes his homecoming sooner! But after the past week, I'm wondering if I can continue at this pace for another 6 months and 25 days. I shouldn't complain...I mean, I have the easiest, most flexible, and fun job in the world. I get to do what I love best (playing the piano) all day long, but maybe ALL DAY LONG is the problem. After rehearsing most days from 7:30-2:00, teaching piano from 2:30-6 or 7, sometimes 8, then adding church choir to the mix, I feel like if I have to play the piano one more second I might just have to eat my fingers off! My worst nightmare would be to get so burned out on music that I don't enjoy it anymore. (Molly, Mom, can you relate?!?)

I'm definitely looking forward to this choral festival being over on Friday because on Saturday, Brad & Kendall (my future sister-in-law!) are coming to visit me. They think that they're coming to relax and get away, but really it's a vacation for me too. It will be so nice to have most of the week off, and to have other humans in my home (no offense to Jack & Harley). I'm so honored that they would choose the lovely town of Hubert, NC to spend their Spring Break!

I don't know if busy is better. Sometimes yes, sometimes no! I'm ready to NOT be busy though!! I can't imagine it!...but would love to have it!!!... And, I'm excited for you to have company too. Between that, you coming home, and us coming to visit...these next 7 months are going to FLY!

Busy is what I try to do too Sarah, but sometimes it catches up to me weather I like it or not. Sometimes a good cry, a girl night, a get-away from busy is much needed (and never have regrets while you are doing it!). Sometimes I like to think of it as God trying to get me to slow down, feel whatever it is I am feeling and learn from it. Joanna
