Well, here we are, just me and the cat. We had a great time yesterday. We had friends over to watch the super bowl. We hadn't seen them in a while, and it is amazing how fast kids can grow in what seems a relatively short time! It was great to reconnect, though. My kids are still asleep, which is a good thing for right now, as it gives me a little chance to catch up on things, including this blog. It's nice to have a little quiet time once in a while.
It's amazing how out-of-touch I can let myself get. I am pretty happy just plugging along in my own little house with my own little family. I don't live near my hometown, so I don't get a chance to see the people I grew up with very often, and since I'm not working outside the house, I don't see other people daily like I used to. Because of a crisis our family went through this summer, we lost touch with a lot of people we were friends with at our church. We are at a new church, now, but sometimes it is slow going getting to know people that well. I guess Facebook is helpful to keep up with people a little, but it's still not the same as having a close relationship. I know it is not New Year's anymore, but I am going to resolve to work harder on keeping my friendships close.
Well, I hear the patter of little feet, so I guess it's time to get up and get going! "School Days, School Days!"
