Wifey goes off on a vacation with some old high school friends each year. Usually a short trip. However, she won't be back until Aug. 2 this time. I really don't mind, it works like a decompression period for me. I call it the annual 'freezer clean out time' as well. More 'stuff' accumulates than you can believe. My rule is: if I can identify it, I eat it. Otherwise it goes in trash.
