Where We’ve Been & Where We’re Going

Unlike many of my US friends, we’re still in school. That is, until tomorrow when it’s the last day of the year! You can probably imagine then, that the past couple of weeks have been busy- and this week in particular. Monday I had a super-fun trip to the hospital (just a check up, nothing is amiss but still interesting when it’s not in your native country), the carnival is in town (Kermis), and we’ve got the end-of-year celebrationS. Add to that my husband is heading to the States and we’re about to embark on three weeks of holiday… and yes. I am a bit overwhelmed.

napWe will always find time to nap though.

I have been trying not to stress over the details or the things to do and things to get done- but I can’t help it. All I want to do is fast forward another week or so and be heading to Austria. Instead, I am stressing about packing and the little annoying details you have to cover before you go anywhere or do anything. The looming thought that my partner will be absent from the majority of my planning time is also a wee bit daunting. I’ve almost forgotten that our 9th wedding anniversary is tucked in there too.

Friends of ours are going to take over the Ritter life in our house while we’re away and I am thrilled that it worked out this way. It’s awesome but at the same time I have been stressing that I get all of the questions covered and details taken care of for them too. Sadly we’re going to miss them as the day we get back they will be leaving! We have two days to regroup and my sister and her family arrive after that. We’ve been looking forward to a visit from her family since we moved over.

My nieces, brother-in-law and sister will be here for the remainder of August and then before I know it we’re back in school. I can’t believe summer will already be over!

So at this time, the next few weeks look like this:

Den Haag–> Austria–> Italy–>NL–>Sidetrips with the fam (Paris? Germany?). That’s a whole lotta travel in just a few short weeks. Wherever you are and whatever you’re doing- enjoy the rest of summer and happy travels! I’ll be around but in what capacity is unclear 🙂
