Last Day Of Vacation And Other Various Ramblings.

This week has been spent winding down from all the holiday hype and un-decorating the house.

Everything seems a little empty and plain looking compared to the big colorful collection of Christmas decorations we had around here. It sure takes a little getting used to again. Every time I go into the living room, the dining room, or the bathroom, I keep thinking "Something is missing." But it's just the lack of festive decor. Ho Hum. I guess that's the extent of my after holiday blahs. The holidays were really great around here considering all the financial woes we had this past year, so I have absolutely nothing but gratitude for the season, no blahs here.

This morning I've been trying to get my lesson plan together for next week. It seems to be in working order. I think I'm ready to hit the ground running on Monday.

Now getting up and ready on Monday morning is going to be a real chore. Mom #2 has been getting up this week for work, and I get up with her to get her breakfast and such, but Baby Boy has been sleeping until one or two in the afternoon. I know I should probably be slowly working him into getting up earlier, so as not to shock his system on Monday, but I guess it's too late for that. I've been kind of enjoying the peace and quiet I get in the mornings since Mom #2 is at work and Baby Boy has been sleeping in. Yikes! Am I aloud to admit that? Well, I guess I already did. Anyway, it was nice, but now it's over LOL.

Anyway, I'm not feeling too insightful or even thoughtful today. I just wanted to post a little something so you would know I'm still alive. It has been a very uneventful start to the new year, but I like it like that. No events are much better than a negative course of events, and I'm trying to remove all negativity from my life right now.

So that's a good thing.

You are too kind! Thank you for such kind words. I am so glad that I am able to bless someone with my crazy life. LOL! I am glad that you consider me a friend. That is a great honor. It's amazing how friendship can reach around the globe....via cyber space, of course. Ha!


Oh, do you mind if I put you on my friends list also? I always ask. Not everyone wants to be a page link.

I'm sure I read somewhere that teenagers need something like 12 hours of sleep. Hormones or something. Does that mean he'll have to go to bed somewhere around 7pm? ROFL I'd like to see that rule implemented! Maybe you could have Nap Time? Ha!

Vic drags me out of bed every morning at 6am, apparently just to make coffee. I don't even HAVE to be up. Then on his day off, he wants me to get up with the kids because "I worked all week and deserve to sleep in!" Guess I was just watching soaps and eating bonbons all week, eh? ;) lol

The bad thing about vacations is that when you get back to work/school/whatever, it seems overwhelming in comparison to all that relaxing you were doing. Here's hoping you find your routine again quickly without too much stress.

I dream of the day that DS will sleep in late! I swear I will never wake him up. I suppose the story will change someday.
