Back to Reality

I think this next week will be kind of hard. After two weeks of my hubby working half days AND having two 4 day weekends in a row....we will be back on a normal schedule. Part of me likes it because it means I will be on the treadmill more often and back in the groove of cooking every night and doing school 4-5 days a week. The other part of me is so sad to have our wonderful family time come to an end. It has been such a great time for all of us! We are 14 weeks into this pregnancy so I am feeling much more energetic and all queasiness has vanished! My husband is jumping into a very hectic week at his work. Most of the people he works with are returning from 2 weeks off and so there will be lots of catch up work to do. Plus an officer died during the break and my husband is partially in charge of taking care of the officer's belongings. Although he did not know the officer, it has been hard on him to deal with.
A few days ago we took our girls to see "The Fantastic Mr. Fox". It was a very cute movie! The girls really did not understand most of it but they enjoyed it. It is not a movie we would own but it was worth seeing once. The animation was really clever and it made us all laugh!
I don't know about you, but it has been FREEZING here! The other day we noticed our bird feeder had run out of food but it was like 8 degrees out and none of us wanted to fill it. However, the Hippie guilted us into it. She said, "Look, the birds are so hungry since we aren't feeding them, they are eating the ground!" Then she turned her big brown eyes on my husband. He trudged out into the 8 degree weather and filled the suet feeders AND the bird feeders. The minute he walked away the birds flocked back up to eat. It was very entertaining!
I hope your new year is off to a great start!

A normal schedule IS nice ... but hard to readjust to after a nice long break!

Taking care of the man's belongings would be hard. I'm surprised his family doesn't come to get them? Or do the Army guys box the stuff up to make it easier on them?

Oh Hippie ... some day you'll learn to use those brown eyes for your own benefit, and you'll be a force to be reckoned with -- in the meanwhile, the birds are thankful. :)
