Anyone wondering where I've been?
Okay, so my ego is bigger than my mouth, who would have thought?!
I have been busy with work stuff, remember that big project? Well the deadline is less than 3 weeks away. And that seems like tomorrow to me right now. So I am I stressed? Nah! I am cool as cucumber.
If you believe that then you’re gullible.
I am stressed. The thing is that I have to leave it up to other people because I am the coordinator and final reviewer. That means it’s out of my control and I have to wait for others to do the work. Do you realize that I am a control FREAK? Yup. I am. This whole delegating thing? Not really in my vocabulary.
I am on a steep learning curve my friends, steep. I pulled out the iceclimbing gear because I am pretty sure it’ll be needed to reach this summit.
Thank goodness the people I am working with are all FANTASTIC. If they weren’t I might be in the corner in the fetal position right now.
But on the side? I have also been finalizing the details for my parent’s trip. This past weekend there was another seat sale whereby I scored them two seats to the SAME tropical destination we are headed to. Not only that but at the SAME time. In the condo on the beach right BESIDE ours.
Do you realize what this means?
Jay and I will be off touring the island while Mom and Dad sit at the beach with the kids making sandcastles.
What? Isn’t that why you guys are joining us?
Well then I guess it’ll be fun to hang out all 6 of us on the beach making sandcastles. But Mom? You can help with the cooking right? You do know you are so much better at it than I am.
While Jay and I might sneak off a couple times to do a bit of snorkeling, we are planning on having loads of fun doing things together. That is what a family vacation is all about after all.
And the vacation? It’ll be just what the doctor ordered after the summit to the peak of the biggest learning curve I have encountered to date. Or maybe the second steepest. I still haven’t reached the summit on this old parenting learning curve.
Maybe by the time they are 20?
