I have been off for the last ten days. This is one reason I love my company. They close the offices on Good Friday and Easter Monday. So if you take four days off either before or after Easter then you end up with ten days off. They also do this for a few other holidays as well. For that they get high marks in my book.
It has been a very quiet ten days - with only a few scheduled events. Easter with our friends was, of course, a lot of fun. And then I had scheduled two different college visits for Man-Child. Which I MONUMENTALLY screwed up somehow. I had scheduled the visits for Monday and Wednesday of this past week. I even wrote it down! And then, somehow convinced myself that I had scheduled them for Tuesday and Thursday.
You can imagine how upset I was on Monday evening when I went to print the email with the directions to discover my mistake. Luckily, I was able to recover and get us signed up for Tuesday and Thursday instead.
The visits went fine - although the first one made me really shaky to realize that we were scouting out places that my child would be living WITHOUT ME. I think we have determined that he would prefer a smaller school (which actually sits much better with me as well). We still have a couple others we want to look at and will hopefully fit them in soon - but will probably have to wait until August or September as most of the colleges are about to end their school year.
Other than that, not much has been going on. No projects done (although there is a list of them a mile long), not much done in the way of housework (and it shows) and definitely no spring cleaning was done (and that shows too). I haven't even been compelled to blog - other than that last book review which I did at the beginning of the vacation. Truthfully, there are about three more books I will probably be sharing with you soon (but didn't want to overwhelm you with 4 book reviews in a row) as I have been parked here
for the most part of the ten days. Doing this
and watching these progress
|Yes, I know it's blurry. The wind was blowing & wouldn't stop!|
of which, I had a perfect view of while parked here
And these- may I say - smell heavenly
On the whole? I'd say it was a good vacation.
But now, it's back to reality for me. And waking up much earlier.....
