Sean has been called away with the school's Rocket Team to the TARC national finals this weekend in Washington D.C. And I am here, staying up way too late pondering all that needs to get done for our upcoming adventure in Florida. It's kind of like "nesting" in reverse.
I can not fathom what it will be like to be somewhere for the sole purpose of relaxing. Wow. This has never happened in the life of our family. Normally our vacations involve reunions and a whirlwind of activity. Then we are back to work in five days like nothing ever happened.
This is going to be 26 days of resting with a short activity every other day or so. Wow.
So, I'm needing your help here with two things:
First, what idea/suggestions can you give this used-to-being-busy mother of seven to make my work load simpler while we are away? We all know that "family vacation" doesn't always include the mother who plans and implements and then cleans up all the fun.
Second, what book recommendations do you have? I normally read non-fiction books. I have difficulty getting lost in a book that has no connection to real life. I don't know why, that's just me. But I'll take any suggestions you may have. Then, if you are a real-life friend and own the book, could I PLEASE borrow it? We'll be gone too long to check out any library books and I certainly don't plan on buying any.
