Several years ago, Husband bought a book entitled "How to Beat Burnout." The fact that I was pregnant with child #3, we had recencely moved, and Husband had changed employers (but stayed in the same field) and fighting L.A. traffic had him a bit concerned. The author said when one experiences any three major life changes such as a birth, death, job change, major move, etc your likelihood of experiencing burnout is extremely high. Well, we soon realized that we always scored five or above at any point in our life. Some people call it burnout, we call it life. So here is an update.
Like many other families at this time of the year, we celebrated another high school graduation. So now it's 3 down 2 to go, for high school that is. I guess we start the countdown again once college graduations come and go, huh! Yes, Middle Daughter graduated this month which was a great reason to have family from far and near join in the festivities. #1 Auntie from CA spent a week with us which was another good reason to meet and share a meal with our newly discovered Counsins who happen to live in the Big A...No, not The Big Apple. Guess again. We shared a day of celebrating milestones and getting to know Cousins we didn't know we had. But that's a long story reserved for an Ancestory.com episode. Does finding out you have multiple additions to the family consistute a birth?
Well, so much for burnout. We just call it an adventure and are thankful for all the places we have lived, the people we have met and continue to meet, and for family that still comes to visit.
