The past couple of weeks have seemed like a much slower paced end to a very long week. With all the hustle and craziness of Johns Hopkins, then coming home and finding our groove... it was all a lot to take in and adjust to. We were all exhausted and working through our time apart. I've used the work "recovering" to describe this time, which seems pretty accurate for all of us, especially Will.
We seem to have found that groove again, and things have been... well... kind of boring. That probably sounds strange. It isn't that I *enjoy* when things are hectic, but my personality definitely leans me towards a life of excitement rather than one that is slower-paced. I become more efficient, inspired, and energetic when we have a lot going on.
So we haven't really had a lot going on in the past couple of weeks. So my inspiration isn't really high. Hence the lack of frequent blog posts! Thankfully, our groove has been got... wake up, go to school, go to work, come home, have a temper tantrum, make dinner, take baths, snuggle, go to bed, repeat.
We were finally mentally ready to step out this weekend for some time away... our first weekend away for fun since we went to Hungry Mother in February. Maybe we would have been better off staying home :) Let's just say that Poison Control had to be called. But thankfully, Will didn't vomit (which he has a tendency to do on trips such as these).
I am running out of awake time this evening to tell you about our trip, so I promise to post more photos and tell the story tomorrow. For the time being, enjoy the photo at the beginning of this post - it is one of my favorite from the weekend.
