People keep asking, though it’s only been a week, how life after regular employment is going – and since I’m so far behind on blogging (though I’ve been writing like mad on another front) that seems as good an excuse as any to do a feeble little post.
So far, so good, would be the answer, and perfect timing in more ways than one. Slipping into that mode has been easy. And, actually, I’m still doing a some work from home, just in casual shoes and clothes.
Things are gradually getting a little cleaner around this old house, though soon we’ll make a big mess when the tiling project upstairs gets in full swing, so right now it’s still a losing proposition.
Next week I think I’ll tackle closets and drawers. So many options.
One of the best aspects is having more time for the kiddos.
Today was the SoMa Mardi Gras parade – and my duties were nil, which is a nice feeling for a change. John and I walked the girls down, enjoyed the parade as mere spectators, then met the grands for some post-parade fun.
The parade was fabulous – huge crowd of mostly non-neighborhood folks, it seemed – and great floats.
Tonight is a belated birthday dinner with Cathy and Paul.
And that’s it for now. Next time will be better. Or not. Time will tell.
