Well, we've been home for a week, and all the regular home concerns and issues have crept back in while the Disney aura has faded away. Of course, this is to be expected, but it doesn't make it any more fun.
This is compounded by no progress on today's weigh-in (which has REALLY got me down), the approach of my "favorite" week of the month (NOT), a poor night's sleep (the 10yr old had nightmares), and the fact that my 15yr old son who has to retake a state-mandated writing test tomorrow morning has come down with a fever. Plus a friend's passing (funeral Wednesday) and some real worries about my elderly MIL's ability to continue living alone (no apparent answers there), and we can see that vacation is definitely OVER.
The book I read about creativity talked about finding a way to infuse some joy into EVERY day. I guess days like today are the ones when that matters the most.
I will try, though.
