Staying Busy

Pat's been home now just over a week.  I can't believe all the things we've accomplished already. We've done a bit of shopping--a new car, really cool new cell phone for Pat (and I'm slightly jealous), sneakers, curtains, etc.  We, and by we I really mean mostly Pat, painted our living room.  It is definitely going to take me a few days to adjust to the new color.   We even got really pretty curtains to match it, and now our living room feels done.  I think it looks great too.  Today we are going back to Home Depot to buy paint for the entrance hallway and our bedroom.  In case you are thinking of doing a paint project, Behr, our favorite paint, is doing a rebate on 1 gallon cans right now, which is perfect timing for us.    

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.

I want to see pictures!!

And, I am literally scared to death of Joe coming home and disrupting our routine. Today is my last day of quietness. I am happy that he is coming home, but I will miss my time with just Porter and I :(
