so many things

I'm going to pretend like I haven't blogged for a year or more and just go with it...

I am transitioning in so many areas right now. For the first time since April 13, 2004, I am alone during the day. All the day. It's so strange. I've thought about, wished aloud for, quiet time for a long time. I mean, look at the name of this blog. And now it is here. And it's weird. Really weird.

The kids have been in school for 1.5 weeks. They are gone from 7:45-2:45 every day. I don't know how to handle this. In some ways, it's been awesome. I'm prepared for class. I'm not scheduling my work and getting work done around cartoons and kids.  And I love quiet.

But, it makes me nostalgic for littler times. I might turn on Little Einsteins just for old times sake. I did just listen to an American Girl song that reminds me of when Maggie was 8 and got really into AG for the first time. Yes, I was tearing up at Saige Paints the Sky. Don't judge.

 I realized today that I must really be a loss for what to do with myself, because I have been taking a lot of pictures of the dogs and cat.
I covered up his private areas with a fig leaf, so don't be offended.

Twix and Mickey fight over space next to me on the recliner, so they end up sitting on top of each other.

The last time I took pictures of the dogs and cat because I wasn't sure what to do with myself, they were different dogs and Maggie was in Kindergarten. The next week, we got Patrick.

Since I don't think we are adopting again soon, I have been trying to figure out my new life. I'll let you know what I figure out.

I can imagine that is a hard transition! I don't know what I would do with myself. But I know you will find peace and joy in this trasnition. :)
