It’s Sunday, but as far as this household goes, it’s our first day “back to work.” Or for some of us, it’s time to recover from the whirlwind of holiday activity. I put “back to work” in quotes because unlike MaineMan, my work is at home with Agnes and an afternoon Corona (from time to time). MaineMan actually had to wake up to an alarm this morning, pack his lunch, put on his uniform and face a 30-minute commute. Those days for me are over, and I have to say I am thankful.
MaineMan’s parents fly back to Vermont early tomorrow morning, and they’re leaving behind a kitchen stacked with food, many exciting memories and a puppy who’s enjoyed being spoiled by not two, but four sets of hands. Agnes is going to wake up tomorrow and wonder what happened to her extra walks and extra laps on the couch.
We have had an absolute blast and it’s going to be awfully quiet this week. That means a lot more time to focus on a few things: writing here on my blog, editing my kid’s book and figuring out the “what’s next?” strategy for my sitting business, Rascals, Inc. I’m going to try and walk you through the process of starting up a business so in case any of you are inspired, I may be able to offer some guidance and (non-) expertise.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday and that 2012 has started off with a bang. It certainly has here.
