Josh is currently with G on their Daddy Day and I am home catching up on 3894 things and answering a few sporadic calls (it has NOT been bad — I feel lucky!).
Things I am pondering:
1- I kind of want to run a marathon again. (Coco – this may be partially your fault). And for some reason I found myself eyeing this very impractical choice: Big Sur. Luckily, I probably won’t get in (it appears to be lottery based and I’m guessing odds are not good).
It’s also super hilly and as noted in the comments previously, hill training is HARD to come by in FL. I’ll just let that idea marinate for a while.
(This was my last marathon, #4. A mere 13 years ago. I was a lot faster then . . . .)
2- Tomorrow marks the halfway point of sleepaway camp! I am wondering if/how A&C will be different when they return. More independent? Less attached to screens (lol, wishful thinking)? They will have 2 weeks at home with fairly minimal structure. There will be some tutoring (one kid) and some pre-school-year work that was assigned and has been ignored thus far (both kids). Then we have a family trip and them BAM, school. I’m trying not to rush the time but my GOD it is going fast.
(Hence my desire to see the world’s wonders? Midlife
crisis awakening, continued?)
3- Book tracking. I’m going to end this list at #3 because Lessons in Chemistry is calling . . .
