When Becky and I planned this vacation we thought about going for a couple of extra days, but thought it might be nice to have a couple of days at home to get back into the swing of things. Pretty much every vacation we come back from we both agree it would have been nice to have some time at home to get back into the swing of things.
Last night we got everything unpacked from our trip and were set up for a pretty excellent day today. Becky and I got up early and hit yoga. Afterwards we picked up the girls. A quick brunch and we were off as a family on the boat (including the girls). Get home and get a bunch of stuff done around the house. Bike to church, enjoy a meal downtown, bike home. Run a quick errand to the grocery store, maybe clip the garage door with the roof rack of the car (more on that later). Now we’re chilling on the couch and relaxing as a family. Tomorrow will be focused mainly on getting caught up on work and prepping for next week.
All in all I’m feeling ready to jump back in and I’m ready to go, and most of that is due to having a couple of extra days at home. I’m very thankful for those extra couple of days!
As you may have picked up on before, I pulled a dumb one and decided to hit the garage door button a little too early while pulling into the garage. Gavin and I were engaged in a pretty deep conversation and I completely spaced it and pushed the garage door opener a little too early. Next thing I knew I heard the sound of crunching.
Thank goodness we have some of the best neighbors in the world, including a super hero who saved the day! I am hugely grateful for all of the help from my neighbor Matt who helped get our garage door back up. Amy was also a huge help over the past week as she helped to take care of our house and cat while we were out. They are a couple of the best neighbors a person could ask for and I am very thankful for them!
