I've been thinking about the quote, "No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just returned from one." Isn't this true? I made myself take down all the Christmas decorations before we left because I knew I would not want to come home from vacation and have that to do too. It was sort of a pain at the time, but I am certainly glad I did it now.
This weekend s'daughter Shelby will be leaving us to spend some time with her mom before she heads to her semester in Norway. I am so excited for her, but I imagine -- after all the excitement of the past month -- it's going to be really quiet here next week.
I am sad, and I am glad.
Maybe I'll use the extra quiet time to start planning our next big vacation. HA!
