Last week was spring break for us. I hadn’t planned on taking a break from the blog, but I did. I got to finally make my way through three books (paper editions) which was so fantastic. We went to the Kalahari water park in the Dells, and my girls blossomed into fish. I loved watching both Munch and Skeeter really take to the water and the pools. They both overcame some hesitancy and fear to ride a few of the slides by themselves. Munch in particular benefited from her recent growth spurt. She was able to ride all but one or two of the rides based on her height. Skeeter found one ride that she went on nearly the entire day. She was sad that I could not get on this same slide. I told her that these slides were for kids, and Mama was just enough over the maximum weight limit that I did not want to risk it.
The reentry back into our normal routine has been challenging, to say the least. We had no set schedules on vacation, and we did not have to be anywhere by a certain time. Combine that with still adjusting to daylight savings time plus a sick child at the tail end of vacation makes for one stressed out mama at the beginning of the week. When life and routine bogs me down, I try to take a step back and gain some much-needed perspective. I look at all the pictures I took, and I see all the fun that we had. I am blessed, and I am grateful for the respite from our daily routine. I got back into my workout routine, and that has helped me banish the stress from the early part of the week. Does anyone else get this vacation hangover?
