drums keep pounding rhythm to the brain

Maybe today is the day that things will get back into some sort of routine again! No more short weeks, family and friends have come and gone and hubby has gone back to work today after being off for a few weeks. He worked most days from home even though he closed down the office but didn’t have to deal with any major problems. It was nice to be able to do something last minute or go to the movie if we wanted to. We went to two! He cleaned out his closet a bit and we took all winter things to a resale shop. That’s the first time we’ve tried that before and I’m curious to see if anything sells! He got his cast off last week and his hand/arm x-rayed again; they said it still had a long way to go before the bones were healed. Then gave him a hard splint instead of another cast but I think it feels more unprotected to him now with the splint. Yesterday he decided to quit drinking cokes when one friend (nurse) told him cokes weren’t good for your bones! I think I’ve only been telling him the bad affects of sodas for years….now it looks like I won’t be able to keep enough milk around here the way he’s drinking it.
My laptop was overnighted to hp last week but is still sitting at a fed*x place instead of being worked on, I’m guessing due to the holidays/closings. I hope they get it soon and get going on it! Now that hubby has gone back to work, his laptop went with him. I’ve got an old computer upstairs but it’s very slow and hard to get much done on. Running up and down the stairs will be good for me today; we’ve eased back into walking some but I rebelled this morning when I saw that it was around 38! I need to finish putting away Christmas stuff that has been piled into the hall upstairs and then start some burp cloths for a gift. I think it might feel kind of nice to get back to a few routine things!
Happy Monday!
(If I can successfully get this tune to your head instead of mine, my day will be complete….you’re welcome!)

    Hi Gail. I caught up on your posts. I have been around but not much. Busy, busy, as you well know.

    Happy New Year to you. I love your Christmas picture/card. Lovely! What a great idea to include the entire family. I’ll have to remember that.

    Ha! I have successfully resisted that song being transferred to my head! I am having a terrible time getting back into the swing of things though. My internal clock is all sorts of out of whack. =/

    I’m still not back in a routine yet, but working on it.

    Is there a consignment shop in I-town? I had no idea! Good for you, maybe you’ll make some spending money 🙂

    It’s always so hard to get back into the routine isn’t it? I’m back at work today but I can’t say I’ve gotten anything done!
    I hope you get your computer back soon!

    Enjoy the day Gail. I love routine. We are battling a cold with Miller right now….he is coughing like crazy.

    We go back to normal tomorrow. For some reason, they didn’t start school today. I truly enjoy having everyone home, but we definitely need to get back on a routine! I was hoping your computer was fixed, but I guess not. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it gets taken care of quickly for your sake (although you might get more health benefits from the stairs)!

    Part of me was glad to get back to “normal” today and then there’s a part of me that is missing being at home and my pj’s! This girl got spoiled to being at home for 2 weeks 🙂

    It’s so nice getting back to a routine after a long break. My kids don’t start school until Wednesday, but I started my work schedule again today and feel so productive! When my sister-in-law gets a song stuck in her head she calls it an “earworm”. Ick. No, thanks, I don’t want that song! Glad to hear that the arm is on the mend!

  11. annie Says:

    Thanks… I’ll be singing that song all night 🙂
    My routine is not happening yet. Hopefully later in the week life will be normal again.

    Oh my, I am so craving routine! But just when it looked like we might be headed that way, Rich had to leave for two weeks. Oh well.

    But I hope things fall nicely back into place for you! And that your computer is home safe and sound very soon!
