Every single vacation should end with a 2 day buffer.
I am so so happy we decided to come home on Friday.
Having 2 days to reset mentally and logistically = priceless.
There are rare circumstances when this isn’t possible and there ARE ways to mitigate (especially if there is time to pre-prep before leaving) but oh man — it is so nice and just NOT STRESSFUL to arrive home on a Friday.
Q2 is now upon us!
About to spend the next ~60 minutes of gymnastics completing my goals list. Jan-Mar were overall very calm months. Apr-Jun are packed full of things, including:
work conf for Josh (Orlando)
work conf for me (San Diego)
career presentation in G’s class
Annabel’s “marketplace” day
G’s ballet performance
Mother’s Day (though Josh is on call that weekend and I will have to make the best of it!)
my bday 🙂
our anniversary (#17 omg)
a short (but hopefully fun + relaxing) couples trip (Vero Beach)
bridging ceremonies for A & C (both moving up to the next level in school next year – C from Lower to Upper Elementary and A from Upper Elementary to Middle School)
probably 50 other school things I don’t even know about yet
Whew. Keeping all of that in mind as I attempt to NOT overwhelm myself!
This was such a fun read:
Finished in the air yesterday!
