I want to thank all of you for your comments regarding Mary. I hope that Jon and her family has had a chance to read some of the kind words. Another example of Mary's legacy, I think. So…thank you, and thanks to Jon for letting me share that.
Life returns to a regular schedule today. Kids go back to school. I have to wake them up in 15 minutes. It's been a tricky two weeks work wise, me not being on vacation, save for Christmas and New Year's. That work from home thing has its pros, definitely, and its cons.
Spent a productive Sunday cleaning Aidan's room, with Aidan…all bloody day. It has never been this organized ever, save for while I was pregnant with her, before anyone actually stepped foot in it. We broke up our 6-hour clean fest with breaks for Super Mario 3. Last night, Dan and Aidan were playing their final rounds when I noticed Dan had some print outs sitting next to him on the floor. They were cheat sheets he'd found on the web for Mario 3. All the secrets, right there.
What ever happened to the fun of discovery? Sigh. The example set for my impressionable child? Cheating will get you past the worlds that are too hard to navigate, and you'll get tons of coins, too! And, maybe find MORE secret vine worlds. Dude!
I'm looking forward to having this place to write again. Definitely.
One more quick thing: if you've posted something that requires my attention or emailed me, just hang tight. I'm not the speediest when it comes to replying. I've never really had this many posts, ever, save for when I stopped blogging, (is that irony?) so…just know, I'm doing my best to respond.
Have a great Monday.
