This month has just started and I am already planning my weekends into April. While this is a weird transitional month, March has always been a fun one. Newport has a huge parade for St. Patrick’s Day and I always make a classic corned beef dinner the night before and some hash in the morning. Friends come over and crash at our place and it’s all around a great time.
This year is going to be a little bit different though. We are looking to move the weekend after, I’m not going to say anymore because I don’t want to jinx a good thing before it’s signed, sealed, and delivered, BUT I do plan on being especially busy packing that weekend.
Which is a bit of a personal bummer because I love the tradition, and it’s been harder and harder to get people together for weekend. We are definitely on the side of hard to get for others as well, so I can’t get too upset, but it seems like everyone’s life is moving at 70mph.
It seems like the spring has a lot of potential, but being in this weird in between stage, am I packing or am I not, and trying to keep up with traditions is hard. I need to loosen a bit of control I believe and see where it leads me.
Or I can just plan…better?
