"Retirement" - Week Two

Well, I am into my second week of "retirement" and so far, I just feel like I am on an extended vacation of sorts.  Because my schedule has been a bit crazy, I don't really feel like I am getting any sort of a routine down.  Yesterday I got up and showered right away.  Today, I was so exhausted from a poor night's sleep (I thought this would happen AFTER the baby came), that it's noon and I am still in my pajamas - not good!

I don't think I am the only one having trouble adjusting to the schedule.  While Sammy loves having me home, I think it's thrown off his schedule too, so there seems to be a bit of adjusting all the way around.  I am hopeful that once school starts it will be easier to maintain more of a routine.  And of course it doesn't help that I still feel like crap 85% of the time, so my motivation to do much around here is limited these days.

But the rest of this week, the whole family will be on vacation.  We are going camping in northern Minnesota and I can't wait.  We got a new tent that is huge, according to Uncas (he set it up while I was out and about with Lisa).  Apparently Sammy likes the tent, so here's hoping he will like camping as well.  My only fear is that he will bark at every little noise.

Now that I have wasted enough time today, I better get moving and head to the store for a coffee pot and lantern!

Wish I had known, you could have taken our Coleman Lantern. Be sure to take pics while you are camping. I can't wait to see the size of the tent.
