Now that we've had a good 4 nights in a row of restorative sleep (8 - 9 hours), life is back to our normal and welcomed clip. I missed working out last week and am slowly catching up to the rowing machine computer racer again.
Classes (art and hopefully dance) are starting up. D has signed up for music lessons (classical guitar). I can hardly believe it. He doesn't have a musical background but has always wanted to learn. It will be dueling string instrument practice sessions in our house shortly.
Fall is also the time I start arranging my work/life spreadsheet for the following year. I like to know how many working days I have each month before I inject trips. My travel budget next year is slimmer due to my "borrowing" from it this year in order to add northern Norway last minute.
It's always a tug of war between "old favourites" and the "exciting new spots" tempered by time at work. When you work part time, I do find I need to watch it as time off represents a larger percentage. Not complaining here, just wanting to make sure I can still do my job properly.
In order to fit everywhere on my list in, I am considering travelling during my Christmas holidays this year. I know I'm signing up for a complete gong show at the airport but I just stumbled upon a good enough "deal" that I may not be able to refrain from.
Man, it's good to be back.
