Real Life

Real life is not always getting to do the things you want to do because you have to go to WORK! Yesterday there was not a post because I had a rip-roaring night in NICU, and was too pooped to do anything but go to bed. I slept ALLLL day, and had just enough time to shower before the family came over for dinner. Hubby made the most excellent spaghetti. I just ate and enjoyed my wonderful family, both equally as much, before running off to work. So no, nothing got done around the house. I took care of myself and hubby took care of everything around the house--GASP!--he even did some laundry, bless him!
Last night I was in charge, and oh, it was nice and smoothly quiet the first few hours, but from 10 pm to change of shift, things were VERY busy. I hardly sat down for ten hours. God bless my coworkers for helping out or I never would have finished. As it was it was 830 before I left.
Our youngest son moved to our house this weekend. It's only for a few months while he saves money to buy a house and we are not only glad to have him around but also glad to be able to help him. He is such a sweet and entertaining person to have around. Unfortunately, the house is in a bit of disarray, we'll have to have some kind of a system for organization in the refrigerator; I was quite dismayed when I looked in there this morning. The garage, my cra(P)ft room, the weight room and the guest room are in various stages of chaos. Hopefully we will all work together tonight and get things in order.
After I sleep today, I intend to try to make up for Sunday and also do Monday's chores.
