Things here haven't changed very much. Jonah is as busy as ever. All things must be opened, thrown, explored, moved, ripped apart, splashed, smashed etc. on and on forever. He stops moving briefly to sleep in short stretches. He was sleeping through the night and really got our hopes up that sleep issues had resolved. But two nights ago, we learned that sleep issues are never resolved. Give a kid a fever and a rash and game over. Welcome back 2am, 3am, 4:30am - I did not miss them at all, but they are all in my life again.
Work continues to be busy and challenging. Frustrating, too, but that's all part of it I suppose. I'm still working on balancing my needs with the needs of my employer - being good at my job and being good at being part of a family, too. Some days I succeed better at one than the other but I'm hopeful that there can be a happy compromise.
Kevin's looking for a car and a job. I think he's getting a little stir crazy being home alone with our little tornado all day every day. He had basketball twice a week as a respite, but an old ankle injury put a halt on that, at least for now. I think it will do him good to get out of the house one or two days a week. Our sister in law has agreed to watch Jonah for us while Kevin works so it's nice that his whole paycheck won't go to a daycare center! It's good for him to be with his cousins, to be with family.

Speaking of moving on, I leave in about half an hour for a conference in Atlanta. This means for two days, I will have a hotel room all to myself. I will miss my boys like crazy, I know, but oh my it will be nice to be on my own!
