I’m back. For real this time.
After Derby season, I needed some time to catch back up and get reinspired. And then May happened.
Why in the F is May so busy? The Crazy Zen Life podcast gals posted this video and it summed up May so well. It’s the hustle, bustle and gift-giving of the holidays without the extended break from emails and work stuff. We went straight from Derby to Mother’s Day to end of the year parties/field day/sports parties to BOTH my girls birthdays. I didn’t even know gymnastics recitals were a thing, but we went to one. The amount of family dinners put Christmas to shame.
That’s to say nothing of work and their other random sports/school commitments which have been sprinkled in there for good measure. Thank god my office literally sits above a gift shop (Praise be to Work the Metal) or there’s no way in hell I would have had enough teacher presents for all the wonderful people who keep my minions occupied and well-educated throughout the day.
This is not to sound like an ungrateful asshole because I’m thankful for all this good stuff but I wish it was sprinkled more evenly through the year instead of crammed into one 21-day time span. If I don’t see a cupcake, unicorn or bright pink gift bag for a year, it won’t be long enough.
Who’s with me?
