Yes, they are over. The holidays came to an end. The truth is that now I don’t notice it so much, because I don’t work outside home. Now I notice it in the change of life that those around me experience, especially my children. Back to routine, work, getting up early, more rigid schedules with the girls … all a bit more organized, but routine.
Ours has been a family summer. We all got together. Being together is great, although I have to confess that there are times when I miss a little peace. But it’s worth it. First we spent 10 days in the Pyrenees, close to Benasque. That landscape fascinates me. My husband and I walked a few kilometres almost every day. We also met my relatives who live in that area. They were very well spent ten days. Then we were at our country house, near the Entrepeñas dam. Here we spent the rest of August, at the pool, on countryside trips and at village festivals, till the storms. Right now, my husband and I are alone and that’s when I took the opportunity to start writing.
That’s what I want to convey.
Epilepsy doesn’t prevent us from having fun.
You may not be interested at all to know what I did in the summer. I’m telling you for you to see that it’s a normal summer. If you didn’t know I have epilepsy, you would assume that it’s the summer of a healthy person, 61, with children and granddaughters. That’s what I want to convey. Epilepsy doesn’t prevent us from having fun. As I said in my previous blog entry, in which I recommended that you ENJOY in capital letters this summer, this summer I have enjoyed the mountains, the landscapes, seeing all my family together, life, love… And now as I’m back, I’ll continue to enjoy and try to live with joy. Epilepsy will always be there but my attitude towards it may be what makes my life happier. And that’s in my hands. In yours.
May you all have a happy return to routine.
