First weekend recap...Saturday was relaxing. J & I had a couple of friends over. I decided to cook dinner. I made some rice, cooked spinach stew, fried plantains and fried tilapia. Our friends are on a 6-week fast from dairy products. I didn't realize that also included all animal products. So J and I had quite a bit of leftover food since they couldn't eat much. They did oblige us and ate some food. They typically enjoy my cooking so I hope to have them over again after they are done with their fast. Besides, they were here to see baby JOE. She loved every minute of it.
On Sunday, we went back to church for the first time. We got up at 7am to make it to church for the 10am service. I was scheduled to teach Sunday school to 6 & 7 year olds. We were very late! We got there at 10:30am. Since it was our first Sunday back to church, we weren't too hard on ourselves. We have figured out what we can do next week to make sure we are not late.
I missed the kids! A lot of them are all grown up and most of the kids were new to my class. Made me realize that time FLIES even when you're not keeping track of it!
On Monday, we spent the day packing and also watching the inauguration. Regardless of who you voted for, it was a momentous occasion and hubby and I were really happy to see history be made for the second time.
The count down has officially begun. I go back to work full time on February 4th. I started working part time (20-hours) on January 8th but I was working from home. I go back in the office on February 5th since Monday the 4th is a telework day for me.
With each passing day, I find myself missing JOE more even though I still get to see her all day most days. I worry about the things I'll miss and I worry about her thinking I have abandoned her every time I leave home for work. I am thankful I will be teleworking on Mondays which means I will only be away from her 4-days a week but I am still will miss her a lot.
I love the last pic of hubby and JOE. They had just spent the time playing while I got ready for church.
Also, JOE has discovered her hand! Se keeps trying to fit it in her myth. So cute!
Hope you had an awesome weekend!
