Back to Work

After a rather blissful two weeks of doing as little as possible outside of home, it's time to face reality again. The children have been relatively content to be at home too. When they've gotten too restless we've sat down and watched a few episodes together of 'Home Improvement' on DVD.

The girls will come with me today to play with other 'staff kids' who will be there. Tomorrow's program is more structured and I need to be able to move through the day without having to also be aware of where the kids are at and what they're up to. Mr Busy, of course, will spend both days with his Daddy. I had to laugh the other day when we popped in to the office and he immediately donned a safety vest and grabbed 'his' clipboard and pen ready to get started on some 9yo boy's project at work.

One final and ill-timed miracle. The kids are sleeping in until 7.30am with the change to Daylight Savings Time. ARGH! They spent the whole holidays waking at 6am and playing in their rooms until 7am. Now I'll have to wake them for school.....again!!!!!

11 Weeks until summer holidays.....

Oh, don't you hate that--the kids are always picking up inconvenient habits!
I'm glad you all enjoyed your break; it sounds like it's been very relaxing. And I love the picture of Mr. Busy ready for work.

We have ten weeks until our Christmas break. Not that I'm counting ...
