Jet Lag and Playing Catch Up

I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day! I spent mine trying not to pass out on the couch with the girls. Liam has a big exam coming up this weekend, so things have been crazy. We will celebrate next weekend with Justin Timberlake!

My conference course was awesome and taught me just enough to know that I know nothing! It was amazing to see how the pros do it and daunting as well. Next year, I'll try and bring the family along because being away from the girls for 10 days sucked. It was nice being Stateside. I went crazy with Amazon shopping and my 3 bags were filled to the brim. Z and Boo now have clothes and shoes to last her at least the next 18 months. I loved walking around the city and am almost convinced that if we both sell kidneys we could actually afford a downpayment on a house in one of the not so nice areas of town, just for a chance at city living. I've never loved walking and public transportation more. I also had my first food truck food, yay lobster roll!

Summer heat is here, which means car cookies and burning myself on seat belts are a thing now. I'm starting some serious networking on the 2nd job front and really trying to make something happen by the end of the year. Whether it's consulting/freelance or a full time second job, I will make it happen and all of this will help with my loan goals. Don't think end of next year will happen, but shooting for June 2016. I'm 27% there, I will kill them. I will destroy them, make them cry and never come back ever ever again.

We're excited for summer vacation. My family is gearing up, scheduling vacation days and getting ready for us to leave them in our dust if they aren't up and ready to go when we are. So far, zoos, children's museums, beach visits and parks are all on our itinerary. Thinking of the walking alone is making me giddy. It's going to be tiring and a little crazy, but pretty much everyone in my office will be gone for about 3 weeks when I get back, so I'll be able to take it easy. So looking forward to it. Only 8 weeks to go!!
