My youngest son got home for “summer” vacation the first week in May.
He’s been home for two full months.
The 4th of July is now behind us, and I realize how little time there is left before he heads back to Texas.
In addition, the remainder of our summer is booked with one thing or another.
I feel a sudden sense of panic about getting everything done these next few weeks.
Do you ever glance at your calendar and think, “But wait …!?”
I have a lot of work this week for various clients.
I also need to start getting my thoughts together for my upcoming road trip.
I’ve scrapped most of my previous road trip plans.
I’m re-thinking exactly how to pull off the whole trip.
I’m still taking the (massive) trip.
I need to see my parents.
I’m just not sure which route to take, how many days to spend taking it, where I’ll be staying as I journey, etc.
(Note to self: Get your shit together!)
I have the added complication of trying to figure out what gear I’ll be taking …
How to manage file storage while on an extended trip, etc.
I need a new laptop, but I don’t have a new laptop.
It’s so much easier to go places just to go.
When you mix work and travel it gets more complicated.
Of course, I also have to factor my bum arm into my decisions.
What can I carry one-armed?
Will I be able to do this?
What if my arm flares up?
Am I better off doing that?
On the other hand, I suppose part of the adventure is in not planning.
Maybe I should just hop in the car and head up the coast ….
And, take everything as it comes.
