I know people who think that December is the busiest month of the year.
Well, you're probably still young.
I mean, yes, Christmas and all that does make a busy month. But the thing is, you recognize it, and you brace for it. And if you're smarter than I am, you start preparing for it early. There are checklists and systems and savings accounts - and if you set it up just right, there is an illusion out there that your entire month can be spiritual and magical.
You rarely hear anyone say "spiritual and magical" when talking about the month of May.
(Or maybe I've just been doing it wrong. I'll admit, I've never searched the internets for a Magical May system and checklist.)
See, the thing is... in my life May brings everything that December brings, except you don't get the fun of Christmas, and you don't get the 2 weeks off at the end of the month.
Just replace "Christmas" (or "Winter" if your school is all p.c. about it) with "End of the Year"or "Spring" and you'll have all the same things:
Oh, and then add:
outdoor lab school week
Memorial Day projects
the biggest yardwork month of the year (at least in Denver)
This year because I'm leaving town, I'm trying to cram all of May into April.
Surprisingly, that's not as easy as it sounds.
Even more surprisingly that doesn't leave a lot of time for blogging. (and i refer to blogging in the interactive sense, not just the hey I wrote some boring crud and posted it sense.)
So I'm just popping in to say -hi, I miss you, and I hope to be back soon. Probably after my spiritual and magical May.
PS Hannah tells me she has finished our Epic road Trip vids - though I have yet to see them. So if the first one didn't bore you out of your mind, pop in and see the next ones in the next few days!
