The Crucible & Column is hosting a Best of 2008 edition of the Objectivist Round Up this week. Be sure to check it out!
We're heading up to the cabin this afternoon, for a friend's birthday celebration/un-decorating for the holidays party. We'll get to see some folks we haven't seen in a while, too (I think). It should be fun, but I'm stressing a bit because I seriously overslept this morning, Ryan didn't fall asleep until nearly midnight last night and did NOT sleep in (recipe for disaster), and I still haven't completely unpacked from our Chicago trip.
You know what? I don't need to stress, do I? No, not really. This is why I like my blog--I start off a post in one state of mind, read my own words and that helps me get to a better state of mind. It's all gonna be fine--even if none of the kids sleeps one minute, which I know is very unlikely. And I know that it's unreasonable for me to expect everyone to settle back immediately into our normal routine just after a long vacation, because that NEVER happens. So as of this moment, I am considering us still on vacation, and I'll worry about that normal routine thing next week.
Although I think we should try to take them on a big long hike or something, to wear out their bodies a bit before bedtime. Yes, that sounds like a plan.
