Back into the swing of things….

We are totally back into the swing of things with home school, tutoring (though a couple of my students have been sick these first couple of weeks back.  

Sunday, I have to go to South Ga with a couple of friends.  One is my Sensei’s wife and she has a baby shower (her dil’s) to attend.  My Sensei won’t go (not sure why) and she doesn’t want to go alone or drive so..another friend and I volunteered.  Makes for a long day but….

Little Cutie is already upset by the fact that she and her parents are going to Son #1’s home for a late Christmas presents exchange.  Personally, I think Son #1 is being a pain in making them come.  He wasn’t happy they stayed here this year, but such is life.  I’m holding them to the deal of rotating. 😉 I’m also thinking they are going to find it difficult to travel with two children.  We shall see.  Anyway, though I’ve explained to LC that they won’t leave til after 7 at night and will return about the same time I do on Sunday, she is still sad because she wont’ be with me. She’s a mess.

I take my 7th grader for an extra half hour every other week so our first week back, I had him make a gingerbread train with Little Cutie….it was adorable and we all had fun.  They ate as much as they decorated, I think. LOL

Back to the grind leaves me with little time to myself and I’m on mission to find a way to add a room/space so we will have room for the baby.  Prayers appreciated.

  1. Can the baby stay in mom/dad’s room for the first few weeks, and then share a room with LC after that? The trip to South Georgia sounds like a long day, but perhaps a good day away from the normal fray?

    • Yes, he or she will stay with mom or dad for a few weeks but then will have to have his/her own room. Little Cutie’s room isn’t quite big enough for all the baby items needed, crib and at least a dresser..just no room. Plus, I don’t think it’s safe to have a baby in her room. While I don’t think she’d intentionally harm the baby, I think her helping when we aren’t around would be dangerous. So….yeah.
      It will be a long day. The only reason I’m doing it is b/c she’s a friend and needed us to go with us so I’m going to be tired for sure but I’ll enjoy the company..there will be laughs for sure. 😉


  2. Prayers, for sure!
    Busy with good things, is good! And I’m so glad! 🙂
    Ha! When we make gingerbread houses, etc., every Christmas we eat at least as much candy as we put on the houses, etc.! 😉 I thought that was just a part of it! 😛
    HUGS!!! 🙂

  3. I hope the trip was fun and not too exhausting! I’m sure there will be a solution to the space problem… and as far as traveling goes – it is never easy with little ones but they grow up fast and it will be fine…

    • It was fun..and not too tiring. I get carsick sometimes so the first hour or so was miserable for me but then it was all good from there. We talked, shared stories, etc..always a good thing. She was very appreciative (as was her son/dil) that we brought her down.
      Yes, traveling with my three when they were little was always challenging but we managed. I am just not sure my DIL with her issues can handle it but she may surprise me. We shall see. Can’t dwell on it for sure. 🙂


  4. Prayers are sent Elizabeth and where there is a will there is always a way.. So know it will all come together when needed..
    And I feel for LC, such an emotional roller coaster ride… Thank goodness for your stability in her life..
