One of my very favorite subjects is school was Physics. I loved learning about how things work, and would get excited when I could figure it all out accurately. One specific topic that I have incorporated into my life has to do with waves. The superimposition of waves to be exact. With any wavelength, there is an equal and opposite swing of the line. If there is a high swing, there will be a low one, and visa-versa.
My life is full of wavelengths swinging all over the place. This past week was a doozy. I had hectic days at school - end of trimester report cards, parent/teacher/student conferences, mixed up schedule so crazy students. At home we had some big milestones. My oldest found an apartment after a long search, and got signed up for the next semester at college. My second oldest is preparing for exciting cello competitions and trips. My third oldest had his first speech and debate tournament where he broke semis in persuasive speaking - as a newby freshman on varsity. And my youngest had a taekwondo clinic that I forgot to pick him up from. I got there eventually.
So what does this have to do with waves? For me, this was a high stress, high anxiety week. Which means next week will be a low stress, low anxiety week. Right? Equal and opposite. That's what I'm counting on. A little help from the laws of nature to balance out my life.
I did get to write a bunch yesterday. And I chose not to vacuum. Hmmmm. Maybe I have a little control over the waves after all...
Writing for children is a passion - along with reading kid's books, writing plays for kids, and teaching kids how to write!
