Ok, so maybe I need to write these posts in the afternoon instead of at night, I am missing home right now. I tried to make the most of today, study, record indexing online, listening to General Conference, visiting with my parents and my brother (from a distance of course) but alas I miss my Tom and the kids SO much. OK – refocus…stay busier and productive when possible, rest when appropriate, spend more time outside (like a 2 mile walk), and get my sewing machine here so I have something to show for at the end, something to measure my progress with. I DIDN’T PLAN ON FEELING SO GOOD – yes a blessing, but I brought stuff like books and the laptop. I need to move around, I am used to being on my feet ALL DAY! This is a lot of sitting. I enjoyed a lazy morning in my pajamas, visited with family through the afternoon and by 6:00pm I was ready to freak out a little. The hardest time is missing bedtime with the kids and the evening with Tom (I think I mentioned that yesterday, get used to it, I think you will hear it again). The sunsets and Julie gets antsy. During the evening I grabbed my brother Michael, (grabbed as in put on rubber gloves in case I needed to touch anything like a door knob, asked him to walk 6 feet in front of me) along with supplies I brought and we headed to the front yard to see just how much I would glow in the dark (with a little help). That was the funnest part of the day, thanks Michael, Mom, Dad, and the Avery’s (who happened to stop by) for all helping me from a distance and making that hour tons of fun.
We broke open some of the bracelets and used an old shirt!
Today’s Blessing: Glow in the dark bracelets – SO MUCH FUN!!!!
