Mungacation 2016

I just dropped my mom off at the airport, and I am sad.

It was the longest trip she’s ever made to see us, and coincidentally at probably the worst time of year for us since Trent and I are both packing up to head to San Diego – I leave tomorrow for Adobe MAX and Trent joins me there in two days (he’s going to the conference this year, so I at least get hubby company!).

But I wanted to see my mom; after the year she’s had, I wanted to get her out of Michigan and get her to relax. I wanted to push myself extra hard and get ready for my MAX responsibilities a week early, so I could have this time to relax with her before diving into the most stressful week of my year.

I just wanted my mom.

I didn’t quite succeed at the stress-free part. I was never able to completely “turn off” during her visit; I was still feeling the crunch, and I’m a little disappointed about that.

But I do think Munga got to relax. I got to take her stress away for a week, I hope. And we got to be together. We got to take a lot of naps together.

And we did actually manage to do quite a lot of fun stuff, too…

I did get my mom. That’s all I really wanted.

      Thank you for sharing you with me! It was a blast to hang out with you, and I can’t wait to do it again.

    It was good to be wanted by you, Lisa! Every mom loves hearing that, especially from a kid like you. I am sorry you couldn’t relax as much as I did. You get that trait from me. And I am sorry you had to work so hard just to provide me with some R&R. Rest assured, you succeeded in making it happen for me. I actually quit working for two days in a row! That’s a record for me! And you made it happen!!!! You and Trent at the bests hosts in the world. I had a fabulous and unforgettable time. I want to go back soon. Love you all!
