Peach State says: It’s Time For Some Normal!

20140222-072101.jpgWhat a delight the past two weeks have been. We have had snow, ice and Tornado Watches and Thunderstorms…oh and let’s not forget the Earthquake! Yep! You heard me right! And yes…we felt it shake, rattle and roll!

School has been out for Winter Break this week even though the kids were out of school four of the five days the week before due to inclement weather. I am so ready for a bit of normal!

It’s Time For Some Normal!

This has been a two week period filled with many firsts…
*More than a dusting of snow,
*Hubby home on days other than normal days off…weather related,
*Only one child in the home,
*Only one child still living…(insert chuckle) “Of course he is…”
*The youngest is beginning to follow in footsteps of older brothers by sitting in “Dad’s” office at night and talking about the day before heading off to bed!…(this is huge!)
and drum roll…..
*Letters from my son in BASIC Training!

The good news is that besides finding some normal in NEW routine I now have an address I can send letters back to my Army son! (Doing the dance of Joy!) Routines have been frozen with icy conditions for two Practices at church this month. (Okay…one of the practices was the 29th of January but that is close enough!) Ask anyone…when a set in stone routine is cancelled it can throw everything into a tail-spin!

Speaking of “Normal”…I apologize for not touching base with you this past week! I have found myself quite busy away from home and during the down time I was busy doing some neglected household chores…except for yesterday. I was dealing with a migraine and…looking a pictures online of my son’s company during BASIC trying to find one with him. “We think we found one..”

I will be getting Facebook Funnies posted later so have no fear. (Note to those who contribute…It’s Not Too Late…Post away!)

Time to give “Precious Princess” her medicine…I wrap the pills in sliced deli meats and hope my fingers remain intact!
(Note to self…buy more sliced Turkey!)

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
