100 Days of Scouting – Day 67: Back to Reality

Today I:

  • Figured it would be a slow day getting back in the swing of things
  • Caught up on a couple of email to our DE regarding some things that came up while I was away.
  • Followed up on some possible changes to our pack’s summer schedule.  I found out that some of the summer activities our council sponsors with the likes of the Florence Freedom, Kings Island and the Cincinnati Reds that we were going to do are not happening when they have traditionally happened the past 2-3 years.  When we set out to plan our yearly calendar last summer we were planning for these events in particular months.  Now we have come to find out that the months have changed.  Fortunately the activities have flip-flopped months so we can just basically update the day of the activity and let the families know of the change in activity.

It’s tough coming back from vacation and jumping right back into life.  I think there is some truth to the saying, “I need a vacation to recover from my vacation.”  I chose not to take today off from work to be able to save a vacation day for later in the year.  I work from home on Fridays anyway so it did not feel much like being at work but I was able to catch up on all my email and project work.

The cruise was great but as my wife mentioned in her blog, we felt a bit rushed trying to explore and experience as much as we could, there was not much relaxing.  Now we can look forward to our beach vacation to Emerald Isle, NC later this summer.  We have a house right on the beach and with no scheduled activities or places to be (outside of dinner and the occasional evening mini-golf or go-karts) we should be able to be more relaxed with a lot less running around.
