I really thought this was going to be our week to get back into routine, to recover from the busy-ness of recent weeks. Alas, it was not to be. After months of good health last year (thanks social distancing and hand washing!), this seems to be our year of catching everything. Don’t get me wrong, we’re still social distancing and washing hands and wearing masks, but we also have kids. Both girls came down with a cold early in the week, which resulted in a couple of sick days and we are still getting our groove back. But today is Saturday and sunny and we have nothing planned for the day. I can’t tell you how exciting that is.
In fact, my big excitements for the day so far have been 1) A long, hot, uninterrupted shower (a Saturday luxury) and 2) trying out our new vacuum. So I’m officially a middle-aged mom, I guess.
There is also a lot of excitement around here for Halloween tomorrow. Pearl got to dress up for school yesterday so, of course, Rose had to as well. Today we are making pumpkin scones, doing Halloween crafts and making all our plans for the big day tomorrow.
