I’m back. I really enjoyed the time off. A brief recap of the highlights . . .
1- Josh and I enjoyed a great 2-night stay in Captiva (west coast of FL, near Ft. Myers). It was about a 2.5 hour drive and felt so different than our home. We lucked out with amazing weather and honestly we really loved the break from the kids! We biked around, ate out, got massages, and generally relaxed.
Already scheming our next mini-getaway (possibly Sept).
2- I read Untamed by Glennon Doyle. I was prepared not to like it simply because it was sooo popular and I seemed to see it everywhere. However, I did really enjoy it.
3- I am excited to get back to work! I think I had a little bit of burnout from not having any considerable length of time off (not counting when we all had COVID in Dec/Jan, ugh!) in many many months. (Actually probably over a year or close to 2!?). Six days is not that many but it felt really rejuvenating.
4- We have been focusing on improving kid bedtime and I have to say, it has been mostly working. I really feel hopeful that Josh and I will be able to reclaim a tiny sliver of adult evening time (ie: 8:30 – 9:30p) this summer.
❏ Peloton Strength workout. I took it really easy on the workout front, too. But now I’m feeling motivated again. TODAY = 30 min strength for runners with Becs Gentry.
❏ 7:30 mtg
❏ Email + clinical inbox catchup! I’m curious how long this will take. I have not checked either since Tuesday at ~5 pm.
❏ Graduation planning meeting + some more work tasks
❏ Non-work tasks: approximately 30 min of podcast prep + organize 365 day #25 – PANTS. I am in major spring (?summer) cleaning mode.
