Wow. It is already May. I am not too sure where April went, but it is gone and I am already feeling behind. This month started “off” because the first day of the month was on a Sunday, a day I reserve for cooking, prepping and planning for the week ahead. We had family in town on May 1st, and while I loved every minute of it, the double whammy of a Sunday that’s the first day of the month really fouled with my focus.
Also adding to my disarray, there are just 23 days of school left. Summer break is really a break for no one. Because I am a full time working person, summer just means camp and extra organization. We take one trip to Tahoe at the end of July, which I literally start planning again for the day the trip ends. A week in Tahoe without responsibilities sounds amazing. Well, the only thing that needs to be done is lunch making. Laundry, because it is sandy at the beach. That’s really it. I think about the week in Tahoe all the time.
But you know what I realized today? Greg and I never, and I mean ever, go anywhere just the two of us. We go as just adults to meet other friends for a weekend. But there’s others and we have a pretty structured plan when we do those trips. Every other time we go out of town, or even out of the house, it is a full family affair. Heck, lately we don’t even go on date nights, just the two of us. I have a handful of friends that don’t have kids and I wonder what they do with all of their time! Because of the work I do, I am constantly taking care of others. It is my job, and I love my job. But I have completely forgotten about me. I get my hair done five or six times a year, that’s all about me. So I guess it isn’t so bad. It was just sort of in my face today, and I got sad about it.
I will try and perk up. I will face May 3 with verve and gusto. I will try.
