I’ve officially hit a time of the year where I have nothing of note to look forward to until late May.
We have passed the family birthdays. My daughter’s spring break is almost over. I no longer attend the library conferences that are happening now and then again in mid-May. We don’t do anything special for Easter.
The next big event we have is my daughter’s college graduation in late May.
We will go to Kentucky at some point this summer. I might make a second trip to a concert in my hometown.
We have a wedding in September.
Right now? After this weekend all I have on my calendar is hours at home, mostly alone, and shifts at the barn.
No trips. No fun outings. No friends.
And not much I can do to change that besides finding little trips and walks to do while my wife is working.
This is when I really need to watch my moods. I can easily start to slide into the negative when I have nothing good on the horizon.
