Man, this episode makes me sound like I actually have it all together and have all of the right conversations.  Don't worry, I do not!   I recorded this one as a reminder for myself - basically my very own hype session.

But, if you're heading out on an extended family vacation, here are a few quick tips for making it the best it can be:

  • Spend the whole week ahead laying out things to pack.  Add to the pile throughout the week.

Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
