Blog: Organizing for Boomers

I know this is supposed to be a blog about organizing, but I'm just recovering from the 9th Annual Crummy Reunion with my husband's crummy relatives, and it's hard to get that group organized for much.

So today I thought I'd just share some musings from the week. This year we were a rather smallish group of 11, as many were unable to travel to the San Diego area. I've stopped doing major planning for these week-long get-togethers because the more planned events the more stressed everyone seemed to get.

Instead, what this week has been is a chance to renew, regroup, and re-create so that we can all go out into the world for the second half of 2008 feeling just a little bit more rested and grounded than before.
And sometimes that's just what we need.
No fancy-dancy vacation.

No pricey places for palatial palate consummation.

No highfalutin thread count with mints on the pillow.

This week we have played and we have plopped. We have sung (at karaoke) and we have slept. We have talked and we have walked. As I look back we have done nothing extraordinary but it has still been more fun than a pile of pigs racing for Oreos (oh, we were there for that, too).

We played charades with laughter so hard it turned to tears.

That is what a successful week is in my mind.

Everyone has now gone their separate ways and back to their "real lives". But for seven summery days we were just a fun-loving family of silly sisters-in law, big, bad brothers-in-law, a couple of cousins thrown in for good measure, our daughter and her cousin's friend. A motley group at best-crummy all around.

We let the rhythms of the waves and the pattern of the sun determine our actions each day. Nothing major planned. Nothing important to do.

Yet, these are the days I will remember.

Until next time…
Making Your Space a Special Place
