This was a strange Holiday season with the timing of how Christmas and New Years fell, day-of-the-week wise. We had to celebrate our own Christmas a couple of days early and then traveled over the Holidays. Neither Christmas or New Years has felt like it was actually happening. We’ll still be celebrating Christmas with my in-laws in the next week. I’m not sure how next year so play out but I think we’re going to be taking breaks from traveling to Minnesota for Christmas, and go only every other year. It has been interesting trying to celebrate the Holidays and manage a healthy lifestyle. I will say that my wife and I together have done about as best as can be expected. We’ve both made…
Resisting the urge to work nights or weekends has been a challenge since starting my new job with Sprint back in September. Having a big high visibility project, that is all new, hasn’t helped matters. This article from DZone says a lot to why I need to put my boundaries back in place. I know things aren’t at a good place when my wife says “you’ve been working a lot lately, when will things get back to normal”. Major red flag indeed. So looking forward to the next few months as we’ll be moving into a new house, and my wife plans a trip to Africa, I’ll need to think long and hard before I pickup the work computer during my nights and weekends.
Glad I got the lawn mowed this afternoon before the rain rolled in. Going to try and keep on top of everything while Vanessa is gone to Africa this week. As we were praying before supper tonight reality hit me that she is gone. I’ll be honest, I almost lost it as we were praying for her and the trip. I know that this was God’s plan, and He’s in control of it all. I have no doubt of His protection over, and plan for, the team.
Enjoying our first campfire for this summer. It wasn’t the first one this year. Enjoying the holiday weekend with family as well.
Had a fun day with the family and friends at a water park near our campground. Pretty sweet inclusive deal with our campsite rental.
