Well, hello! and happy new year! Is anyone still around? I'm back but not sure I remember how to blog.
Just kidding...this is me we're talking about...of course I do!
As much as I love December, okay, not quite as much, but I love me some January, too. All fresh starts and clean corners and piles of crap out the door! Also, some kids I know got their own rooms. James suggested he have his room in the (still unfinished and somewhat mythical) lower level and at first we were all, "no way!" and then we were all, "hey...wait a minute..." and we did it and it's working out great so far.
James' room was a lego filled disaster when I was taking pictures the other day so his will have to wait. Ruby loves hers and especially loves having her doll house in there and her "new" desk. The desk and chair will be painted soon...we are still negotiating color choices. At first she wanted "holiday colors and packers colors" but narrowed it down to bright red but now she said she wants red and purple and black. with some pink knobs. ha! I do have some limits, girl child.
I hope your holidays were wonderful and filled with love. Ours were...we had so much fun with my family and I am so grateful for all of it.
The big kids were both excited to go back to school today...I bribed them by giving them a ride instead of making them take the bus. :) Nicky and I are here, alone, together, and I am trying to remember how to be a mother again.
We got a DVR the week before Christmas and I love it. (lovey lovey DVR)
I know I say I love stuff a lot. That's 'cause I do. :)
Well, listen. It's good to be back. Have a good day, dear ones.
