Today was very slow at times, but still had some great things. A friend came by at lunchtime and brought some fun movies, treats, etc. Another family stopped in, and I got to see my own boys for an hour. Vinny and I played with an etch-a-sketch-I drew and he erased and said, "bye bye" or "all gone". We did that for several minutes. The boys are all doing well. Josh runs a tighter ship than I do, and it is probably good for them to get a strong dose of dad, instead of just push-over mom!
I am working on finishing Vinny's scrapbook. I only scrapbook their fist year of life, and though Vinny is almost 2, his isn't done. It will be though! Probably by the end of tomorrow! I find watching TV or a movie while scrap-booking to be far less boring than just TV alone.
Finally, my book group called in so I participated via speaker phone. That was nice to be included!
I will admit though, today was the hardest day yet as far as big stretches of time that seemed to drag. From am until my friend showed at lunch took forever. Then, it was another long stretch before my family came. This evening was full though, and that helps! I also started crying at random today a few times. Hormones? Stress? Situation? Yes, I guess so. I don't feel depressed, but I did feel melancholy for a bit. Feeling better tonight though, and I continue to be amazed at the help our family is receiving from near and far.
