It’s those in-between times that get me. In between holidays. In between visitors. In between jobs. In between paychecks.
I always seem to get a physical letdown when company leaves, especially company I really look forward to having. The anticipation is a wonderful mix of impatience and excitement preparing for visitors. When they finally arrive, the time flies by like something out of Deep Space 9. And then all of a sudden it’s over. They’re gone. And then the letdown. I often don’t get it the next day; it’s generally the day after, and then the day after that. And then before I know it, I’m in that ‘in-between time’ where I know down the road we’re having more visitors, but right now … nada.
So that’s where I am now. We have comp’ny (as my mom would say) coming the second weekend in August. I’ll have to re-arrange work a bit, make sure the house gets cleaned, but not too soon (LOL!), and then begins the anticipation and excitement of one more week…three more days…TOMORROW!
Thank goodness for those times at either end of in-between!
