Our weekend was both the same and different. The house is louder and messier and more full of life with Cal back home. We love it, for sure. Adjustment? Yes. Everything from getting up in the morning to tripping over baseball gear has been a change. He's settled back into school and Neel and I have settled back into getting him up for school (so much harder to wake up to the alarm at home!), and as a result we were all wiped out come Friday.
Our Ditch Your Gear class got rave reviews, so to celebrate that and Cal's successful first week back and Neel submitting a grant (although, let's be honest, that happens practically every other week it seems) we headed out to Field Guide for dinner. The garage door was open, the music was loud and the food good. It felt like spring might finally be coming our way. Today it's sleeting.
Cal walked in our city's St. Patrick's Day parade with the Lt. Governor, and by Friday night his best friends were back at our house for dinner outside. Felt like old times.
Like I said, it's sleeting and cold and rainy and windy today. We had the kerosene heater out last night, and we're figuring that Cal's game will get canceled again tomorrow. Neel got out in the yard briefly on Saturday, and he's ready. Spring, where are you?
