2023-03-25: Daily Update

We woke up to a snow storm. Later in the afternoon the sun came out and the snow started to melt.

We are flying to Spain tomorrow. I got a haircut this morning. I usually get a haircut before I travel. One of the kids also got a haircut. I read a lot while I was waiting at the hairdressers. It is always long and boring.

There was a lot of laundry, in preparation for packing tomorrow morning. While I was doing that, I was listening to Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life. They were talking about Flow, multitasking and distractions. It made me think that it has been a long time since I don’t do a notifications/distractions reset. It is so easy to let the distractions creep in. You go to a work meetup, you add Slack on your phone, you don’t take it off when you get back, you start getting Slack notifications on your phone, even when you are not checking it in the browser etc, etc. I am going to to that over the vacation.

I went to run some errands and when I got back I found my daughter with acrylic nails. On one hand only. I don’t have acrylic nails. I don’t like long nails, and even less on an 11yo. I will keep to myself how she got them on (she is not the only one involved) and now I have no idea how to take them off, I don’t have time to take care of that and we will see what the grandparents have to say about it.

And that’s it for today. Tomorrow I will be traveling, trying not to cringe at 5 acrylic nails.
