June 6, 2018: Packing and Prepping for the Summer Trips

Wednesday. Got up around eight. Was brewing coffee by eight thirty. I had a call that started at eight and I didn’t get to get off of the phone until after noon!

This week is very busy. The family is leaving in just two days to head off to New York (for the kids), and to Ireland (for Dominica and Madeline) so there is a ton of packing going on and a lot of hanging out as I am not going to be seeing my kids for quite some time.

In some ways, the timing is good. I need a month to do nothing but work. But it has been two very hard, stressful, and depressing months and having all of the family away for a month is not going to do much to make me feel better. I am going to be very lonely.
