I'm not quite there yet because I really am enjoying this time right now but pretty soon I will be ready for school to start up again.
Dang, I can't believe I said that out loud... well, you know what I mean.
I love my girls and love the time we are spending with each other. Sometimes I need some space but for the most part we have been having fun doing all sorts of things - namely, Disneyland and riding our bikes.
However, there has been one huge negative to our time together. I have barely been running.
This week, I ran all of five miles. All of them were on Monday. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I had the same distance - 0. Not sure if I'll be able to run Friday. I might have enough time on Saturday to run 5 and Sunday I'm hoping to do 13. Best case scenario I'll get 23 miles in this week.
My legs want school to start already.
I treasure our vacation though so I don't want it to end yet. The girls will have three full weeks of summer before going back to school on Aug. 9 (which doubles as my birthday). So, come August I will be able to plan runs and actually follow through on them.
Until then, it's just going to be mostly cramming runs in when I have a chance.
Now, while my running has suffered, not everything else has....

Summer will be long gone before I know it. Next thing I know, the weather will be cool and I'll be longing for a day off with my babies.
So, I'm not ready to hit the accelerator quite yet on our vacation. If I miss runs, I miss runs. I'll chalk that up to perils of being a work-from-home parent.
