Back to normal!

After 17 days out of school and away from any regular schedule, the kids headed back to Our Lady of Mercy today!  And I'm not the only one that was happy.

They both jumped right out of bed with minimal prodding on my part and were ready in record time.  They are excited to see their friends.  I'm sure tomorrow will be a different story when the reality of school, school and nothing but school on the horizon hits them like a ton of bricks.

And back to school, means back to regular life.  We've got scouts, basketball practices, piano practice and guitar practice.  Not to mention homework, homework and then more homework.

Peter is excited to meet him new guitar teacher today.  He's had a two month break and I think he's ready to get his rock on!  (Although, I will admit it has been nice having one less thing we have to do.)

I'm hoping this new teacher will take Peter to the next level  in his guitar playing.  Peter just hopes he will teach him lots of heavy metal songs. 

Dan's got lots of issues to deal with at work and I've got lots of laundry, grocery shopping, bill paying and grade parent planning to do.  So around here, it's back to real life. Or as I prefer to call it -  back to normal!

As much as I love the holidays...and I do...I welcome the comfort that routine provides. Hope you all adjust quickly! : )

Glad you are back to normal. Everything is closed here due to a blizzard and very low temps.
