We arrived late last night, due to the constant snow, and resultant highway slowdown. I'm surprised I didn't go gray, but we have had much worse drives. Will post more pictures later, but for now I am getting ready for bed, and getting my 'home away from home' set up. I don't want the kids to be too disrupted, at least not any more than they already have. My heart cracked when I heard them talking about going home, and one of them said, ' But we don't have a home.' So I am on the warpath trying to get everything set up so we can get back to our routine as much as possible while living with my parents.
Side note- I am so proud of my dad, he has smoked for 60 years, and he has committed to at least not smoking in the house for the entire time that the kids and I are here. Which is quite a committment, considering the temperatures here in the North Country! Plus, he has slowed WAY down on the frequency of his breaks.
Side note #2- I can already tell that I'm going to have to fight to keep myself from being lazy- every time I turn around to do something, Mom already has it in hand, or done! :P I started the laundry this morning, and she switched it over, started two more loads, and dried and folded it all while I was doing other things and handling the kiddos! Whew! I love my parents! :)
