The Daily Grind

I have to go back to work tomorrow. boo. I know I'm lucky to have been able to take off for two weeks, but I still don't want to go back. I have missed LD, but I would somehow manage if I didn't have to take care of him again. His mom tried to talk me out of taking off Christmas break, "if you change your mind and you want to come back, just call". WTF? I only took off for 2 weeks and there are 6 adults in that house. I think they can manage. She's so needy.

We took both our trees, stockings, outside lights, Christmas villages, wreaths, festive night lights and about 50 penguins ( I have a little obsession) down today. It was a little sad. There are no more traces of the holidays left in this house. Life is back to normal- or as normal as life can be.

It's been in the 70's for the last couple weeks. Yesterday it was about 80 degrees. Today it's about 50. What is up with this weather? I know others who are buried in snow would be grateful for such weather, but I wish it would get somewhat cold and stay that way. Where is winter?

Apparently I need to go back to work, because I have nothing important to say- obviously. I'm going to the kitchen now to get some mexican hot chocolate.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

We took down our Christmas stuff too. The house looks so bare without the tree in it!

And the weather has been driving me crazy. At least up north it's consistent, even if it is just cold! I LOVED the weather on Saturday though.

Good luck tomorrow. And really. LD's mom = Mrs. R. Seriously.

Our Christmas stuff came down when Derick knocked over the Christmas Tree. That was December 26th! Thank God none of Lily's ornaments or the boys ornaments broke.

I want to see pictures of the Penguines. Beautiful trees!

I should have taken down my weak holiday stuff but I didn't. I shall this week.
