Getting Back into the Routine

I had a horrible sleep last night. I'm not sure why . . . I was in bed by 10:30 p.m. and it didn't take me long to get to sleep, but my dreams were strange and I felt restless all night long. My conclusion is that I'm anxious about today, January 7, 2008. Today is the day that all things go back to routine around here.

It was the return of the 6:00 a.m. wake-up call for Wayne and I. He went back to work in the middle of last-week, but for the boys and I this is the day we return to school and work. I must admit I am not looking forward to it. I've thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks off (maybe too much) and it's hard to envision myself sitting behind a desk for five hours a day, driving for 1.5 hours a day (total), and returning home to wife and mom duties. I know so many people do this. And they don't have the luxury of setting their own hours. But I'm just wishing that I could stay home today. I'm still not completely recovered from what I posted about a few days back, so that likely has something to do with my sluggish attitude.

My boys have mixed feelings about returning to school as well. While they want to see their friends, they'd much rather keep playing at home with me (and their dad when he's home from work). We've spent a lot of time together doing family things during the holidays, and I suspect they are going to be missing that.

But, life goes on. 2008 is still fresh and new and waiting to be explored. Now if only I could find my explorer's hat . . .

Oh my sweet friend, Kimmy

I am so sorry I haven't been able to stop by and check in on you. I just read your post below and I am so very sorry. I just feel satan attacking right now. He's doing a job on my husband's side of the family and several of my friends too are experiencing great pains right now. And I question God, honestly. What are we supposed to be doing and learning that we are not, I ask Him.

My heart aches for you because you are hurting. I will be praying for you. I will pray that God gives you strength and peace. It is hard to understand, I'll admit. Love you so very much. I really do.
