I have to tell you that sitting around is just simply not for me! I literally did nothing today until after Ted came home and then we went to Target for school supplies for the kids. Much easier--and I really had to get out and walk some. Thank goodness my sister stocked me up on books! Loki laid next to me in bed and I read most of the day away--except when I got phone calls from people making sure I was resting! Hummm--think people don't trust me??? I honestly have to say I'm so glad for the computer. I've sent paperwork to work, paperwork to Ted (yes I do that to him), and set up more appts. with our lawyer. We've been trying to get stuff done for the kids and with all that has happened in the last year--well I have to say our lawyer has the patience of a saint! Speaking of saints--my MIL told me a story about the kids today that made me tear up. It didn't help that I had just finished reading about Steven Curtis Chapman and his daughter (the newest People magazine). Anyways, the kids went to Red Robin for lunch today and got balloons afterwards. At Aunt Mimi's house, the balloons got away. When the kids asked, Bumpa told them they were floating away. Rauan said they were floating to Papa and Julia said they were floating to Papa and Callie. And--if I remember this right--they said they missed Papa. Me too. Geez--I have sensitive kids--who would have thought? Well, Julia is probably the most empathetic child ever--but Rauan surprises me once in a while. Chewie--well it remains to be seen. But he is a snuggler!
Maria--I got bored and that's why the blog looks different. I'm like that with my hair too--get bored, change it up. Julia has picked that up from me--except she moves furniture around. My living room is always different--she's tried with the family room in the basement--but I think carpeting slows her down! If I don't get back to work soon--who knows what will be changed??
Oh yes, for those that are wondering--Ted isn't getting much sympathy at work. He is now sporting a lovely black eye!
