Much like the snow outside my door, my time off from work is slowly disappearing. I don’t have to go back to work for another six days but I’m already thinking about how much I will miss being at home with the kids. I hear so many people say that they will be happy when the kids get back to school. Not me, heck I wish we had another month off together. In fact, it’s times like this that make me wish that I could have just quit working and stayed home with the kids.
How wonderful would that have been? To be here every day when they woke up and to greet them when they came home from school. Then again, I know that pretty soon they will both be gone and at that point I would be wishing I had my job back. Well, maybe not…
I suppose that’s how life tends to be. It’s never just right. It never seems to be exactly like we want it to be. It would seem we are never happy enough. I guess that’s what makes us human.
I can tell you I wont miss the shopping and re-shopping. Matt and I spent the better part of the last two days taking care of exchanges and returns. I also had a couple more gifts that I needed to pick up for later this week. It hasn’t been too crowded on the roads or in the stores however. That makes it a whole lot easier. I think the snow and cold has kept the lesser of heart holed up at home.
I’m ready for some shop time. Yesterday we picked up about six hundred feet of insulation and I think I’ll work on that today. I have just a couple more studs to put in place and after I get the insulation in I can start hanging the drywall. A day out in the shop will be a welcome change of pace for me.
