My kids = DONE!
They are off for the next two weeks. Initially, they had a day off on Monday 1/2 but it was converted to a hurricane makeup day (yay?) so they have exactly 16 days without school.
It was a week of themed dress days, class parties, and teacher gifts. I gave gifts/bonuses to office staff + our nanny. Finished with most family gift shopping. Still need: college BFF gifts. And that’s about it! Josh true to his word did end up taking care of Hanukkah. And we told the kids it would be a minimal affair this year and honestly didn’t get much protest. I think they are somewhat aware that they already have a lot.
(G understands this the least due to her age, but in this case her birthday timing works in our favor as she just received a deluge of $@&# and hasn’t really asked for much else.)
Me = NOT DONE!
Clinic –> not done. I am working Mon + Tues (so the kids will be in “camp” at their school – sorry kids!)
BLP episodes –> not done, and typically the sound team needs me to be a bit ahead for the holidays. I also highly doubt I will be up for recording in Montana! So I need to batch some this weekend.
Though now that I look at it, it’s really just 2 episodes — 12/26 and 1/2. 12/26 will be a Q&A thanks to the wonderful questions and suggestions you keep providing, and 1/2 will be a celebratory Welcome to 2023 ep, so this should be doable (and also fun!).
(BOBW episodes –> already done, because Laura and I wanted some holiday buffer! And we have some really fun guest eps + our annual goals episode coming out.)
(BLPA materials –> ready, and here’s a graphic preview!)
So, I don’t have that AHHHHHH feeling of freedom, though I am looking forward to it arriving next week.
✅ Long run – done (11 mi and didn’t feel great but whatever it’s over and I’m still alive. Not every run is going to feel amazing.)
❏ Outline BLP eps
❏ Lay out winter/ski gear + start packing process
❏ Last trip to REI (I guess we are driving to Boca) to fill in any gaps
❏ Clear out physical inbox on desk that has gotten out of control
(Kids: gymnastics, soccer photos, soccer game (C))
