What happened to the “Joy Journey”?

Some days I have to actually stop and remind myself that this year is about personal joy.  With some of what is going on politically, some of my choices, while ethical, aren’t exactly joyful.  I am exhausted.  I’m being pulled in too many directions.  I really do wish I could just “poof” disappear with my daughter and husband for about a week.  Then come back refreshed and get back on the fast track again.  Anyone have a magic wand?  Anyone got a genie?

My mantra right now is “October is almost here”.  How the heck I’m going to get everything done that needs to be done BEFORE the end of September, I’m not sure…  but come October, my life should go back to being at least partially mine.  “October is almost here.”  Say it with me: October is almost here.  😉
