Taking time for relaxation

June 9, 2013
By PATTY CHRISTOPHER (jkoenitzer@aol.com) , Parkersburg News and Sentinel

This is the time of year my family really looks forward to relax; as you read this, we will be sitting around the pools in the Catskills in New York. It is great to renew the many friendships we have made there over the years. There are additions to some families and, sadly, some friends are no longer with us. That is life, and that is why we should enjoy each day and never put off what we want to do or tell folks that we love them and appreciate them. No one is promised tomorrow. This year, we have been so inundated with work and responsibilities that we would not have taken the time to go if we hadn't made the commitment years ago to devote this time to relax and enjoy our family. There was one unfortunate hitch this year - both husband Norm and I had hired house sitters and somehow we didn't get the information to each other. Both people are excellent and responsible, so it was a hard task to tell one not to come. Anyway, both will get plenty of work this summer as I take on the task of bringing this old house up to what I want it to be. Bring on the dumpster.
