after almost a week apart, our family is back together again. Michelle and Alice arrived yesterday evening after spending time in PA to be with her family for her grandmother’s funeral. all the traveling went quite well, and it was good to be with family, although mama is quite tired now. Alice seems a little out of sorts too, but she apparently traveled very, very well.
it was less than a week, but I already forgot how much time and energy it takes to look after a four-month-old (even a relatively happy one). so I was quickly reminded how jealous I get of my own time and space at times. we’re all re-adjusting to family life. thankfully I have a few days off before my new job starts on Monday.
