Happy Friday! This morning is the first day in like a week where the sun is shining. Getting deeper into winter already makes us inherently less cheerful cuz of the lack of sunlight due to short days, but when there’s cloud-cover non-stop for weeks at a time, that’s certainly a more sad-feeling day to wake up to. Not today! Sun is brightly shining, Chelle woke up with a smile and a great attitude and that’s wonderful because I maybe didn’t feel so cheery this morning – combo of a headache and bad night’s sleep. But, her smile brought me right to life and I am grateful for that.
I have planned to take the entire next week off of work, which I planned long before we know about Baby H’s Downs, but given all the heavy stuff from the last couple weeks, a good week off to just relax and spend time with the girls and celebrate Thanksgiving for a couple days will be great. In many ways I am dreading extended family get-togethers because it means we’ll either have to talk about this or people will already know and there will be some social awkwardness, but I think it’s probably going ot be therapeutic and I am worrying for nothing.
Until then, I am just going to plow through a stack of work today and then immerse myself in fun family time for the next 9 days….I might throw some wood-working projects and some holiday decorating in there, too
