Finally... A Regular Saturday!

Sometimes you don’t know how badly you need things to be normal again until they happen.

For the first time in over a month, we had a regular Saturday morning. There were no swim lessons, no volleyball tournaments, no one was injured, away or undergoing surgery...

The girls and I are all on antibiotics for awful sinus and throat infections, but they have started to kick in and we don’t feel nearly as miserable as we did 48 hours ago.

We did a few errands after a pancake breakfast at one of the local churches with Mom & John. She’s up and about now, though still getting used to the new medication that goes along with the pacemaker. When she gets frustrated about her slow progress, I point out that it has only been a week since the surgery and how glad we are that everything turned out all right.

Nick and I even had a nap this afternoon while the girls enjoyed a massive Barbie game in the basement.

I’m blogging quickly tonight because our city and our family plan to observe EARTH HOUR tonight and spend an hour with NO electricity on at all. Having watched The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising movie last night, I plan to introduce my girls to the book by Susan Cooper which is MUCH more detailed than the movie. That should be the perfect tale to read by candlelight!

Thank you for the comment on a new author to read. I am always on the look out for more sci-fi/fantasy books my kids can read and these sound right up their alley.
