Okay. Our life has gotten a re-boot and now we are trying to get used to a new normal again.
Seems like it has been a while since I have just written about how/what we are doing individually.
Michael: Tough transitioning aside, he is in the school band and seems to be enjoying it. He will be marching in the Halloween Parade next weekend. He is studying the Civil War and Tale of Two Cities, among other things, in school. He is still obsessing over Batman and other superheroes. Has ordered another hand held 80s computer game based on Batman. Is still eating us out of house and home. Sometimes you can tell he is maturing, other times, not so much.
Willow: She sings a lot, asks questions a lot and has opinions on EVERYTHING. She is frustrated to not be able to READ already, although she is learning sight words and how to spell and is well on her way. She is also frustrated that her almost-loose-tooth has not come out yet (her best friend Kayla has already lost 4 teeth). She loves "My Little Ponies", but dad was brilliant and introduced her to "The Land of the Lost" so we have been given a break from the ponies.
Me: Struggling with full time work that is stressful, as well as being full time mom and trying to eat right and exercise too. (This year has not been too kind)
Chewy: Started a new job on Tuesday. Is getting used to the commute (a bit longer than last time, but in an area we used to live) and all the new job stuff. Going well so far.
