Calm Before The Storm

October 10, 2008

It looks like I am going to get an early night’s sleep…maybe even before midnight. We have spent the last couple of evenings getting all our our ducks in a row in preparation for leaving. Kristin finished the “Grand Plan” color-coded spreadsheet. It is quite a feat of organization and planning. She could have a future as a production control manager somewhere. I was up until 1:30 am doing the bills and balancing the checkbook last night. In these challenging times, just having the budget balance is an accomplishment.

Sounds crazy, but It is just dawning on us that we are leaving the country and our kids in a few days for two weeks. We have already had a few meltdowns with the kids, and Kristin nearly had her own yesterday.

Thus it is with anticipation and a definite sense of mixed feelings that we retire early.
