Adjusting to Paul’s new job is a slow process, but it’s true what they say ‘absence does make the heart grow stronger’, Paul had been working from home so much recently that I think we had all taken each other for granted too much, we had lost the art of appreciation, and now separation has helped to heal aggravated behavior we had all started to adopt! My two babies smile from ear to ear when he walks through the door, Tate was even repeatedly saying ‘dad dad’ last night and patting his tummy, just too cute!
I think when you are commuting every day, it really makes you appreciate the weekends much more, that time you do have becomes more precious… Both Paul and I are huge family people, I guess that’s why we have so many children, and as our children have grown older you appreciate those precious family times together because you know just round the corner they will be fleeing this cosy family nest and may not be there for every occasion soon, as they will be creating their own lives in different places!
Last weekend flew by in a flash, it was the last of winter indoor soccer for Mabel, yay, is Spring really here already? Monday saw us in Morristown after a trip to the doctors office for Florrie and Tate, who have been poorly with fevers, chesty coughs and stuffy noses for a week now! We had so much fun in Century 21, but it turned out to be a little cold for the Arboretum and our picnic plans, so a cake from Carlos’ Bakery and a warm Starbucks coffee had to do instead!
The last couple of days have been absolutely crazy weather wise, Tuesday was cold and snowy, we stayed indoors most of the day and cranked the heating up… Yes I know it was almost April but it was damn cold! It was an early start taking Farrel to work yesterday morning, there was at least an inch of snow on my car and a very unexpected thick layer of ice too, it took 15 minutes on the drive and a 20 minute car ride to defrost the ice on my windscreen… The whole place looked like Winter had arrived yet again! By lunch time the weather’s April fools prank was laughing at us, as the sky was blue, the sun was shining, the snow had disappeared as the temperatures hit 50f, my layered winters apparel was screaming at me, you are too hot now… Florrie was excited to change into her new pool sandals I had just purchased and my feet have been desperate for some air after a long winter stuffed into boots, so when I got home I dug out my dusty flip flops, I didn’t care if it wasn’t that warm, I put them on and did the flip flop dance, which did make Jord smile just a little bit!
Easter Weekend starts here for us… We are off to meet Paul for lunch today, the temps are meant to be in the 60’s, sunny and warm, so a walk around the marina near to his new office sounds like a perfect way to spend an hour or two this afternoon…
Have a great Easter, whatever you are doing… Let’s hope the weather is perfect for egg hunts and lots of fun!
