Oh, yeah. I got involved in a start-up. As anyone who has gotten involved in a start-up will tell you, they take a lot of time. Most-of-your-day time. It's-all-you-do-think-about-and-talk-about time. And, if everything goes as planned, the end result is excellent and the time spent is well-spent. Did I mention you spend a lot of time in them? Which explains why, to me, it's feeling a whole lot more like maybe late March-ish than late June. For some reason, this year, Christmas break was immediately followed by Easter vacation. I thought it odd at the time, but now it makes perfect sense. Christmas break was not only immediately followed by Easter vacation, it is being one-upped by Fourth of July. Nice.
And now that I've come up for air, it's perfect timing. The kids just brought home their backpacks full of half-used glue sticks and sticky pencils; the house is begging for disinfectant, and the dog is happily ripping through anything on the floor. Yes, time may have flown, but my timing is perfect.
The family was so delighted to see me, they greeted me with a mop and a paint brush. Welcome home!!
