So, now what?
Getting back into the groove after our trip has taken some time. A few have checked to see if I’m in deep sadness after such a fabulous trip and then coming back home to winter…and you know, just the general feelings of letdown after you’ve been waiting for something for so long and then it’s over.
There has been a smidgeon of that, but mostly I feel rejuvenated. All that sun and fun put life back into me and I feel ready to face whatever is next.
So far, that has consisted of:
*Fighting a cold with all my might
*Losing the 6.5 pounds I gained on the cruise. Worth it.
*Helping the kids with their make-up work~ I think today will be the last of it!
*Catching up with friends
*Weeding out the gross~ this covers many areas of my life right now. I’m in a purging state of mind. So, watch out, junk drawers, candy stashes (Chocolate, don’t worry, you’re safe), paper piles, negativity, bad influences, flakes and creeps.
*Giving in to watching the train wreck that sucks me in with its unbelievable horrificness~ yes, had to make a word up~ The Bachelor. Don’t even get me started on Courtney. This show somehow slipped past the radar of the gross. (see above)
*Baby love~ my friend, Krystal, had her baby while I was gone and I met her last night. She is perfection!
*Puppy love too~ Steve and Jill’s little love. I am fully smitten with Oliver!
*Birthday planning for my boy. Yesterday, he said it wasn’t looking much like a birthday around our house…no decorations, no cake…guess I’ve got some decorating and caking to do before tomorrow! You know I’ll be crying with my usual birthday sentimental blues, it just seems to come hand in hand with their birthdays.
*Trying to keep that Vacation frame of mind~ relaxed, happy, stress-free, calm and uncluttered. Easier said than done in real life, of course, but trying.
