Back to Reality

It has been a splendid and productive two weeks and two days since Greg's last day of work. We took a trip to Buffalo and got home just in time to get into our jammies and await Santa's arrival on Christmas Eve. We spent the Christmas day with Grammie and Grampie. And in the week or so since then, I have organized parts of my house that have been in desperate need for the past few months. We hit some milestones: Levi FINALLY started sitting up! And Avery is in day six of potty training.
I began Christmas break in the grips of a deathly nausea. I ended it feeling great. Ready to hit the gym again, ready to start cooking again, ready to teach the kids again. (I think?) What a difference a couple of weeks can make.
I can't say that I'm ready for Greg to head back to work. It's been nice to have an extra person around. (and nice that it's been him!)
Normal life...ready or not, here I come...

I am so feeling your "back to reality" pain & enthusiasm. Dan is back to work after almost 3 weeks at home (including the 5 or so days he was home with the awful flu). I miss him so much. I knew I'd have to embrace this right away or I'd be in a slump that would keep me from hitting the gym, doing creative things with Carter & keeping my house in order. Sounds like you've had some really great weeks! YAY!
