1st Day

It's my first day of work today. Kids don't start until tomorrow, but I'm officially on the job as of today.  I love my job and am grateful for the regular income, doing something I love, and for the regularly scheduled holidays. So I'm not going to whine for months about having to go back to work. But there are just a few things that I will REALLY miss.

1. Spending enormous amounts of time with Andrew. I have gotten used to us doing everything together, all day, every day.

2. Snuggling with Lucy every morning. I know technically I still could, but I never leave myself extra time in the morning and I always feel rushed getting out the door.

3. Special breakfasts made by Andrew every morning. I'm talking special as in eggs and toast, potato pancakes, fancy scrambles, almost every morning.

4.  Sleeping in and waking up with no plan for the day.  I am a much happier person when I get 10 hours of sleep a night.

5.  Endless canning, cooking, and gardening.  These don't go away completely, just limited to evening hours instead of all day projects.

6.  Camping and hiking and spending time outside when it's not dark and rainy.

I miss all the summer stuff too...I feel like I got ripped off this summer and will have to camp every weekend all next summer to make up for it!
