3. In lieu of worrying about the things I cannot control, I am going to clean up my internet presence, tidy my subscriptions and follow lists, and generally streamline things. I do not have time for all the things that catch my eye, I will just focus in on the things that are most important.
4. My kids are engaged in their traditional post-trip meltdowns. Though they did the entire trip really well, with excellent behavior all-around.
