It has been an adjustment for me and Ryan having Pat around. While I really enjoy having someone else around to help and talk to, there are tiny moments where I miss the quiet, smooth flowing routine that Ryan and I had. Don't get me wrong, I'm beyond happy to have Pat home, but I'm still getting used to it. I can say that being a family again has been truly amazing, and I look forward to all the adventures to come.
Pat and my sister also surprised me. My sister is going to come out for a visit in February so that she can watch Ryan the night we have the formal for Pat's task force. That is so generous of Marie to make such a trip to help us out, and now I feel completely at ease leaving Ryan for the formal. I'm very luck to have such a great sister.
Also, I've tried some new recipes that were really good. I'll try to share those the next time I have a few free minutes.
