starting to feel normal again.

30 Mar


oh how it seems like it’s been FOREVER since we’ve had a “normal” week.  i’m thinking it’s probably been since last november when we put our house on the market.  and i guess this week won’t really count, but i’m counting it today.

dinner is on the stove.

laundry is washing and drying.

homework is done.

it’s snowing outside and i’m watching the cutest rabbit hop around in the yard.

the kids are happily watching tangled, which was amelia’s first movie theatre movie. [baseball practice was cancelled.]

will is reading.

i sewed kitchen cafe curtains this morning and am enjoying using my new kitchen timer.  simple pleasures.

and life seems a little bit normal.  i’ve craved this moment for a long time now because i’m such a creature of routine.  and i’m savoring the feeling.

will starts work on friday and he’s kicking it off with a 6 day stretch.  and our new routine will seem like old hat in no time, i’m hoping.  he’ll be working more of a shift-like schedule (mostly days with a few nights sprinkled in), longer shifts, but fewer days working overall.  like an entire week less a month than before.  different, but good.

waiting on this rug to be delivered to my front door and the decorating of the mosh pit will commence.

i located my camera the other day so i’ll get to work taking photos of our very unfinished house.  ahhhh, life in progress….
