Back to School!

This morning I was first awakened with some plumbing matters...we live in an old house. Old houses always have plumbing issues. Most of them are easily solved with a plunger. Slow drains are just a fact of life until we bite the bullet and re-plumb the house using more modern materials. Some of it has been done but there still remains more to do. MOVING ON...I lay in bed thinking, no I do not want to start back to school today. Then I heard my own voice in my head telling countless people we would be starting back today. But, most importantly, I told my children we would start back today. So we eased into school mode. We are out of shape, we are not early, we are not eager-but we are back. I am determined to have a kick-butt rest of the year as we travel about less and stay home more during this cold cold weather. The more we do now, the more fun we can have when it is warm and sunny.

I can handle you cold weather. From the warmth of my home in my jammies assuring myself over and over, this too shall pass.

You are not kidding about this cold. I lasted a couple days of hibernation, then was forced into a couple more with a sick kid....so now I'm ready to get outbut, man, is it cold. Sending you warm and sunny thoughts.
