Easing Back

The kids have been out of school, and Jeffrey has had 4-day weekends for the past two weekends. Today, Jeffrey had to go back to work, and the kids go back to school tomorrow. We've been taking advantage of the time off to sleep a little later in the mornings - not nearly as late as Beth managed to sleep the other day, but later than our usual. I didn't even get up and walk, which is unusual for me. So, today we had to get up - but still not quite as early as usual. When the kids don't have school, I don't get up until Jeffrey does. When they've got school, I get up first and go for my walk so I'm back by the time Jeffrey is ready to leave for work.

I figure it's good to have a little transition to ease back into the regular schedule, even if it is only another 30 minutes in bed. Yeah, Jeffrey doesn't get up as early as he should when I'm still in bed with him, and he blames it on me. Tomorrow, we're back to normal and I'm up at 5:45am.
