It’s early in the holiday and I’m already not sure what day it is.
This is something that usually happens toward the end of the holiday when I’ve run out of things to do or we’ve just come back from visiting the in-laws.
This time, though, I think that because I’ve already established a routine of babysitting, work and time wasting the days are already starting to seem the same.
(Note: the “time wasting” is actually the “work” I’m forced to do even though no one actually seems to check it).
To break this up, I’ve planned a few outings with out youngest. The problem is, she also has a few activities planned that are related to school. (Note Deux: As I’ve written before, the Japanese educational system does not understand the concept of “vacation”.)
This means that the extra planning serves to break up the usual routine. It’s not very helpful, I suppose, but it is something different.
