Escaping To The Beach
Jessica and I didn't intend to miss our usual weekend posts but over the last few years I have discovered that each year around the end of April or the beginning of May we really begin to struggle with keeping up. We have been working months since our Christmas break and fatigue and exhaustion have started to set in. We add to that that I am usually juggling several things at once and Jessica is caught up in end of the year activities at school where she teaches before jumping into taking her own classes and we both really struggle with feeling spent.

It has become a yearly tradition for us to escape for a beach vacation each year as soon as Jessica's school year wraps up. We are heading out midweek this year so the last few days have been spent getting prepared to leave. Friday evening and Saturday morning were spent running around in a rush to check off a long list of errands. I finally upgraded my iPhone after 5 years! Saturday evening I sat down on the sofa with Tiger to prepare a post for yesterday but fell asleep and took a 3 hour nap.

I am expecting long days at the office this week as I try to keep from falling behind at work while gone. I also have to finish laundry and packing in the few days before we leave Thursday for 10 days ocean side. Do you have any vacation plans for this summer?

A few favorites to pack for a beach getaway:
