i think i'm back. the back-to-work adventure came to an end last month. we simply couldn't handle it as a family. even if everything was arranged, with afternoon nanny a couple of times a week, helpful grandparents and a wonderful woman to clean the house for us. maybe we just didn't try it long enough, maybe we would have gotten used to it. but after four month of coming home late afternoon or early evenings and rushing through the end-of-day routines with three kids, hungry for attention and craving to be seen, we had enough. all of us, really.
so for the past three weeks i've been making up. giving the kids days off, one at a time. to have some alone time with each. and short days in the kindergarten to all. in three days we'll be going to denmark for the summer. where the rumors say the weather is nasty cold and rainy. which means we've been working on an overdose of sun, beach and heat. the heat doesn't take much of an effort, though. it's here, 24/7, sticking to us with air humidity in the 70 plus percentages. luckily we have the pool in the moshav and the beach.
