First things first, I have an important “Monday Milestone” to report…
We took down the Christmas lights and raked the leaves (from the Fall!)
Thank you. And yes, I realise it’s not Monday today, but since yesterday was a holiday, I figured I could get away with it.
We had a great, but looooooong four day weekend. I don’t often say that I am happy to go back to work after the weekend, but four days home with the Chatty McChattersons, combined with a snow storm and too much sugar? Well, I’m happy to get things back to normal. Sitting in a cubicle drinking coffee in silence has never felt so good.
I’m running low on steam this morning, but will do a better Easter wrap up soon, along with some new pics of the kids 🙂
Friday. The day Griffin asked if we could go looking for “Pissy Lo-Lo’s” (pussywillows):
Ever have one of those days where you purposely put the kids in the car and go for a long drive because you just need some quiet time? We had one of those days on Saturday.
Sunday was Easter dinner with family, which was great. Good food and trip planning. Did I mention we’re all off to Disneyworld in less than two weeks? Yup, it’s true.
And Monday, yesterday, was just about survival. You see, little brother Jacer has discovered that he is thisclose to walking on his own. And by thisclose, I mean, he has discovered that grown ups will help him motor around by holding his hands and walking him around the house in the “back breaker” position. He’ll look at you and yell “go GO!” And if you don’t do it, there are tears, and cries, and screams. So we do it, which perpetuates more demands of “go GO!” and back-breaking waddling around the house. It’s a vicious cycle.
So what’s on the agenda this week? We have hockey games, soccer games, birthday parties, swimming lessons, gymnastics, and dentist appointments, with a bit of ‘going to work’ on the side. Is it wrong to dread the upcoming summer because of how busy it’s going to be? Working full-time during the day, running a business during the evenings and weekends, wrangling two kids who have their own agendas and juggling everything else in between? Thankfully, there’s two of us (Ken, I’ll see you in September!)
