Back to Normal?

Tomorrow will be the first day in two weeks that Swiss Family Rat hasn't been together for the bulk of the day. The week of Thanksgiving BabyRat's school was closed and we were back home last week. It's been a lot of fun having her around all the time, I love goofing off during the day with her and not being in a hurry. It's great when we go wash the car together and I can let BabyRat mess around with the vacuum for as long as she stays interested or we have time to go Scheels to ride the ferris wheel and covet sporting goods or even just going to the grocery store when you're not in "OMG must get home to cook" mode.

As you can tell from looking at my posts, it does affect when I get to blog. Rather than dropping Fatty (I know I shouldn't call her that, but it you saw her when she was six months old you would understand why) and then going to the coffee shop to post more or less first thing in the morning, I found myself doing it at the end of the day. I would try to post during nap time, but most of the time I just needed to chill during that part of the day.

It will be interesting to see how all of us adjust back to being on some kind of schedule.

I hope you all adjust well to your life over there. I really enjoyed meeting Wife/Mama Rat! I hope we can see the Rat fam when you come back to DC. We'd like to have you for dinner & you can have some fresh homebrew.

p.s. I admire you for being open about grief on here, I don't know what to say, except I'm sorry--I haven't lost a parent. but I do know grief & I think it helps so much to be open about it--for you & other people in the same situation.
I hope your Christmas is as peaceful as possible & that babyfatRat has a wonderful time.
