Isn’t this the most beautiful baby?? My newest little great-grandchild, Lincoln…I’m so glad I had the chance to meet him!
I had never been to the east coast before, either. I have always wanted to see New England, so this was a great opportunity. My daughter and her family were fantastic travel companions. The trip there and back was tiring but fun; the time spent with Michael, Samantha and this new baby was a treat. All of our side adventures were memorable. I don’t regret a thing.
Back from Connecticut, one night in Lapeer, then a four hour drive to Charlevoix, a twenty minute plane ride to Beaver Island, a rush to go pick up my little dog, then home.
The next day, it was back to work. Plus attend a meeting, mid-morning, at the Community Center, pick up a week’s worth of mail at the post office and collect my luggage – which arrived a day later than I did to Beaver Island – from the airport. In the evening, three hours of computer work regarding the news-magazine, then bed.
Yesterday, up early to write my blog, nine hours at the hardware and a visit with Aunt Katie before going home. There, I had a stack of subscription renewals and address changes to enter into the database, several phone calls to return, one story to rewrite for length, my personal bills to pay, two bank deposits to prepare, laundry, play with Rosa Parks, then bed.
I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling that vacations – no matter how joyous – are exhausting!
I’m so tired!
I have this day and two more to work at the hardware before I have a day off. I am also in the thick of trying to get one issue of my magazine to the printer, and the next issue plotted out and written.
Today, for my daily writing, this is it. I have hit the wall. A complaints list…a bit of whining…that’s all I’ve got this morning.
He is precious… I can’t believe you are a great-grandma! Where has the time gone?
wonderful news! congratulations on a beautiful great-grandson xx
What a cute little baby! Congratulations to all on a new member of the family.
That said, I don’t blame you a bit for hitting the wall. I usually have to take a vacation after a vacation – one day to just decompress from all the fun and excitement. But sometimes that decompression can’t be afforded. I sympathize, and hope things get less hectic for you soon.
Yes! I came home feeling like that’s exactly what I needed…a vacation!
