Let the summer chaos commence

June 1, 2011 - Jennifer Brookens
The calendar has flipped to June and I'm already pulling my hair out by the roots. The calendar is already 3/4th filled with no definite vacation dates pinned down.

I wish I could lay it all on the feet of my husband. After all, he's your typical guy of not really planning and just letting things happen. Those magic details that fall into place are from me running around doing the flight of the wounded bumblebee all over town moving swimming lessons to different dates, swapping working weekends with co-workers, etc. And just when I think I got it all... "Oh, it looks like the last week in June would be best after all!" ZING! Time to move everything around again. Or is that even an option now?!

Truth is, we are both equally to blame since we just never know what sort of things will come up on a day-to-day basis. One year we ended up doing separate "staycation" weeks because we just couldn't get things coordinated.

Will it end up the same this year? All I know is that when I get my vacation time, it better be a Vacation as in not working my tail off or me running around trying to pull off impossible feats. But I already know better. Let the chaos commence! *GONG!*
