It’s spring break. Which means that we weren’t prepared for childcare for the week while the kids are home, of course. We always figure we can wing it and then when things start unexpectedly snowballing even though it looked like a relatively manageable week in terms of work, we start tearing our hairs out. Nothing new. I’m sure all parents relate.
The other thing that is boggling me is that there are only 2 and a half months left before school’s out for summer. I mean, we’re talking summer vacation. How is this happening already?
I’m starting to think about plants. Not for outdoors yet, but for inside. Maybe start a little collection of succulents on the windowsill. We couldn’t have many plants in the house when our cat was alive because he would eat them all, but now that we are petless, I’m starting to collect a few houseplants. It’s those little things that still remind us that he’s no longer with us.
