I feel like a complete fool! Because of all the shift-swapping and changes in my days off, I’m about to pay the price. Starting tomorrow, I’m facing a grueling seven-day work stretch. Oh my goodness, I’m not sure if I can handle this. Tomorrow, I’ll need to inquire at work about the possibility of taking a midweek holiday; otherwise, I fear I’ll lose my sanity. Seriously, it’s a bit overwhelming!

On a brighter note, yesterday, I visited Den Bosch, and the entire family was there – it was a lovely gathering. I had the pleasure of meeting my cousin’s adorable 10-month-old baby boy for the very first time. His name is Raphael, and he’s an absolute cutie. It’s clear that good looks run in the family! We also celebrated my grandma’s 82nd birthday. Everyone pitched in and got her a fantastic gift – a DVD player. She was genuinely thrilled with it.

Today marks my last day off, and I’ve already taken care of a few things. I’ve booked a hotel at San Francisco Airport for April 17th and reserved a car through Hertz. So, that’s all sorted out. There’s just under two weeks to go until I embark on a fantastic vacation, and I simply can’t wait. First, it’s off to San Francisco, then Las Vegas, and finally back to the Los Angeles area. Gisela is just as excited as I am. It’s going to be an incredible trip. I know I’ve mentioned my excitement already, but I just can’t help it!

Beyond that, I don’t have much else to share. I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing Madonna as well, although the wait feels interminable. But it’s definitely going to be worth it! I’ll wrap things up here. I hope you’re doing wonderfully, and that life is treating you kindly. I really can’t complain – isn’t that just fantastic?
