Today's been good. It's a nice, cozy, lazy Sunday and after I slept in I've spent the rest of it snuggled on the couch with my laptop. My friend Jessica got here around 3:00 from her trip to bring two of my girls home. They had gone up north to visit friends and family for Thanksgiving and she was nice enough to drive them back. We had a nice visit and then she hit the road again. I have to say that it was nice not having all the teenage angst in the house for five days and was ready to lose my mind up in here, up in here within ten minutes of her leaving and the kids feeling "back to normal" with no company around. The attitude was almost immediate and what makes me even crazier is the eye rolling. Grr! But for now, we've all settled down to chill around the fire that Scott just built. I love having a fireplace but have to admit that I am such a chicken when it comes to fire. I even have trouble taking things out of the oven--no joke. When he opens the fireplace doors to adjust the logs, I freak out and have the kids run to fill up the mop bucket with water "just in case." Don't worry, they think I'm as crazy as you do right now.
