So now that we're home... it's been sooooooo nice to cook again. Our first meal was fish with veggies... at least that's what Steve and I ate... Rainee on the other hand is my picky-eater and had a peanut butter sandwich. We've had everything from pancakes to tacos... and it's been wonderful eating fruits and veggies...and eating at a regular time. And I'm sooooooooo enjoying cooking again... Although there is one thing I do miss... when you're eating out, you don't have to do dishes... I do miss that.
As for bedtimes... ugh, this has been hard! Still working on it... Not just because of the time change, but for nearly 2 weeks we were staying up late talking to family... or because Rainee slept most of the day away on the drive and wasn't tired when we wanted to go to bed, so we stayed up late with her. So now, getting our bedtime routine back to normal has been a bit inconsistent and a struggle... but at least we do have our bedtime stories down pat. As for getting up... everyone in the house seems to still be on the "let's get up early" schedule... which for me is fine... that's normal for me... and it's my quiet-time - and I love it... but when everyone in the house gets up early... it's not good. It not only shortens into my quiet-time... but makes for 2 very very very grumpy-bears (Steve & Rainee) half way through the day. Although yesterday, Rainee did sleep in until 8am... whooohoooo! Maybe that's a sign of things changing!!! I sure hope so... because grumpy-bears are not fun to deal with!!
So even though things aren't completely back to our regular routine... they are getting there... and I am grateful. I'm grateful to be able to enjoy all the joys of being home brings... except, well... the dishes! lol!
