Stress Relief. How to cut loose when your kids are away at camp for a week.
I’m an attached parent. An attachment parent? I don’t know what to call it, but I’m a very involved parent. I love my kids. Love to be with them. Spend all my time with them. They’re pretty awesome guys.
I never really get a lot of time in my own head without interruptions. So what do I do to cut loose while all the kids are away at camp for a whole week for the first time ever, ever, ever?
Well I’ll tell you what I do.
Instead of running to school and work and back this week; I walked. And then I got all crazy and I drove across town and ran at Gulley Park to run because I haven’t been able to run there in forever.
You can laugh if you want but I felt so free.
Me running at Gulley Park instead of running to work was similar to the first bath you take after camping in the woods for a week.
Tomorrow I might get really crazy and run at the Lake. How awesome would that be?
