SACRAMENTO, Calif., USA - We are in the final days of countdown before we leave for Mexico, the house almost emptied and the Grey Goose Express getting more packed by the hour.
Today the Admiral and both woke up at 3 a.m. and by 4:30 gave up, got up, and got back to tasks.
When I can't sleep, that really says something about the stress level.
Complicating matters slightly has been selling a few pieces of furniture: the desk at which I am writing this blog and an exercise bike I bought to help me recover from knee surgery last year. The bike was sold last night and today a family is coming to look at the desk. If they don't buy it, it will find its way to storage. Or as we call it, stowage.
One mantra this week has been - and remains - just ride the wave and go with it.
Oh, the other is: breathe.
Ride the wave, but don't look behind you
