So, we fell back an hour last night and I am really feeling it. Longest day ever. But in a good way. We take our Sundays easy. Went on our walk - we ran into Leo the neighbor cat and he followed us home. He's still here. Did some cooking for the days ahead. Boxed up a corner of the house. Policed candy consumption.
Jeff heads out of town to his new office for the first part of the week and we are already starting to find a rhythm in the midst of the chaos in an odd sort of way. The days seem to be better- I'm more up than down this week. I've hired help for the yard and house cleaning and so that's two less things to concern myself with. I need to buy more paper plates though because the dishes are relentless. And don't think I haven't seriously given some thought to hiring an Alice to come stay with us.
I got a new phone but I haven't had much of a chance to really get to know it yet. I'm happy that it doesn't have a broken screen and can just make calls and texts. I was playing around with the slo-mo feature on the camera and captured Buddy aka Jon Hammy cleaning his adorable hamster face. I originally thought it would be great to start posting a little video/interview of the kids every Sunday, or the first Sunday of every month, but I guess we'll just start with the pets.
