We made it home. Sort of–our former home is occupied, our future home is occupied, and we are staying in the lap of mid-city luxe, courtesy of friends on vacation.
In any event, it’s good. Jet lag appears to be on its way out, along with night terrors, repacking every two days, and wasting water. In: pool visits, lounging in pajamas, and happily not doing much of anything.
We are considering giving up cable as a cost-cutting measure, so we may have lost our minds. But it would be nice to read more books. And we can always download shows individually instead of watching All the Crap That Exists on TV.
If anyone wants to pay me to write a post on traveling with kids, I’d be happy to oblige. Not so much the practical (“bring snacks and a change of clothes”), but more meta.
In the meantime…I need a favor. Long story short: Miss M appears to have come up with an ADD/ADHD diagnosis. We want to buy her furniture/storage/design her room in the new house in a way that will be the most helpful for her to stay organized and neat. Not pristine (because, wow, have you met me?), but easy for her to pick up/put away toys, books, clothes, etc. without feeling disasterously overwhelmed.
Anything would be appreciated; no tip too small.
How’s by you?
