Last year and this year, late-March and April weekends have been packed with travel. It’s exciting and fun, but also exhausting and frazzling. And so it goes. I like to relax and have down time, but that’s pretty much all I did this winter; spring is time for adventure!
This weekend is the third of three Virginia-bound weekends in a row, followed next weekend by the second of two weddings in four weeks. All occasions have been celebratory and all moods good, so I’m thankful. I’m also tired! It’s a challenge always to remember that I’m young (but getting older) and fun takes effort. There are also no company-sanctioned days off from work between President’s Day and Memorial Day and that is one big, fat stretch of year to have to work every day.
What’s the moral here? I guess the moral is that I’m tired but I’m trying. Spring can be painful like stretching tense muscles. I’m just limbering up for summer. I had my first Locopop of the year today. It was grapefruit/mango and the flavor was an accurate combination of sweetness and tartness.
