Tonight I was standing in the kitchen going over the calendar with DH. We were chatting about upcoming obligations. The conversation began as it usually does: “Oh speaking of dates: I haven’t put this on the calendar yet but …”
We updated the calendar and I stood there marveling, once again, over how much my life has changed in the last year. I flipped through the next few months. Each and every one has some sort of something going on. The summer months have me traveling at least once a month and, in July, a vacation as well as an event.
I stood there shaking my head, a smile on my face. DH had retired to a seat at the kitchen table while I confirmed the various dates and we worked through overlapping conflicts. I said to him, laughing, “When did we become these people?” He knew just what I meant.
Just a bit over a year ago, I left the house only to go grocery shopping, run errands, and chauffeur LM around to his various activities. My social life consisted of chatting with some folks online. That was it. That was my life.
Now, today, I have so much going on that the family calendar is a carefully orchestrated balancing act. I have meetings, events, and travel. I still have my Mom stuff to take care of but that’s humming in the background. It is not the sum and total of who I am. I am a whole person. I am living not existing. When did that happen?
