Returning to the World of Adults

Work can take over my life for all kinds of reasons, but one of the more demanding ones is the role of Overnight Chaperone on teen weekend trips. I enjoy these excursions and am more than happy to support young people gaining more experiences in leadership, community service, and just plain fun.

Still, when the trips end, I make it a priority to treat myself to something big or small to bring me back to the world of adulthood.

Weekend leadership conference in Camden County ended, so I made a trip to Haddonfield, NJ. For BOOKS. I picked up a copy of something that had been on my to-read list for a long time.

The past week of my life was devoted to supporting (read: grocery and supply shopping for 30+ kiddos) for a Lock-In sleepover event. I got 2-3 hours of sleep Saturday night, but because the event went so well I had energy yesterday morning for a walk through Spring Lake, NJ. And a hot cup of tea outside at a cafe.

Beyond that, grown-up life means paying bills and taking out the trash and keeping yogurt in stock. I’ve come back to those things, too.
