Saturday was the laziest day ever. A week of working full time way more than we have in a long time led to everyone napping most of the day. It was supposed to be a blizzard day anyway. We didn't get as much as places north of us did which was good cause shopping needed to be done before school started Monday.
So Sunday we were off and running....I was exhausted. Haven't had to shop or drive in these crowds in a long time. Looks like hubby will still be doing the majority of grocery shopping.
Monday was the dreaded first day in a new school. My oldest was really acting out with the stress of the move, but I think more so the new school. I spent all day Monday hoping to pick up a happy girl. She was reserved but relieved when we picked her up. It took her most of the afternoon, but right around dinner time she opened up and spilled all the good news. Big sigh of relief.
That leads us to today, Tuesday. She was more than happy to get up and get going. So much indeed that she had a good 40 minute wait before we had to leave. We decided yesterday that we can drop her at the trail in back of the school and she could walk up alone, and then meet me at the same place after school. My child, who formerly hated and merely tolerated school as something she had to get through, took off running. She forgot her lunch, came back, and ran off again with the biggest smile I have ever seen. She was excited to see new friends and learn more math. Her words said it all, "no more meanies". Just what I was hoping for.
Hubby got an extra week off before starting the new job which has made moving our stuff into an existing household somewhat easier. It has given him time to decompress and stop the stressing. Also a little mini vacation with his family. Something we did not know we needed but are so appreciative of.

I think we are getting back into a routine. Not our old one but a new one. Still needs tweaking, but emotionally I think we have all leveled out.
But because we are trying to integrate more stuff than originally thought, I have not accomplished any stitching. At All. How sad, huh? But just a little more and then I can hopefully finish "Faith". I did pull out my project and get set up in a chair so when I am ready I can just sit, stitch, and look at mountains.
Life is good right now.
