What Changes

Life is good.

I've been asked a lot in the last two weeks exactly what happens when the summer ends around here. A lot of folks only appear while school's out and ... well, the curiosity is natural.

What happens is ... the summer staff goes home and the kids' camps are confined to the weekends. In the meantime, we start getting adult groups -- the scrapbookers, quilters, worship teams needing planning sessions, AA groups and so on. We start getting day groups and lunch meetings. And there are four of us to take care of it all.

Don't get me wrong -- it's less hectic. It has to be or our buildings would fall into disrepair and our minds would leave us (permanently).

But it's never completely quiet.

There are, however, other opportunities. Chances to leave camp and have dinner in town, chances to do laundry in the middle of the day, chances to catch up on doctors' appointments and life in general.

Chances to go on long vacations to make up for that psychotic summer.

And nights like tonight, when we go all Internet café on the Chef Lady & M-Man's back deck.

It's a good life, if a little lacking in what a 9-5er would call routine. I'm pretty okay with my own routine most of the time.

Now, back to the reservations for September...
