Happy Monday! Enjoying a holiday Monday over here! It's a "real" holiday as no stores are open! I am home all alone still with Carter. Yesterday I was a bit lonely, it's odd to be with only one child all day and night. I think what's making it worse is that I worked way too much last week (due to back to school rush) and now when I am home only one kid. Or maybe I got used to being so busy and now not so much. Chad is having a great time on his trip, I miss him but I am happy for him having fun. And really I am happy for Ariel who is having the best time with her cousins and grandparents! I have been catching up on cleaning and organizing over here! And now my friend is coming over for the afternoon with her sweetheart so that shall be fun!
