I am officially on maternity leave.
Wow...that sounds kind of weird.
But it's true.
I wrapped up things at work today...and I'm all done until February. The big project is pretty much complete. There are a few snags to be worked out, but one of my co-workers is going to take care of it for me.
So I'm free.
Now the real fun begins.
Do you realize the counter is down to 2!
When I first posted that thing back in September it showed 69 days and it seemed forever for it to count down.
But now the time is finally here.
In a little over 48 hours we'll be on our way to Kiev.
Tomorrow is going to be the calm before the storm.
Meshack and I both took the day off to spend time with the kids...just the kids.
There are no real errands (except for a trip to Wa!-Mart for groceries - see I told you we're keeping that place in business!).
We plan to do whatever the kids want to do...
Dinner and a movie?
Trip to the zoo? (it may be a little chilly)
Hanging out at home.
Whatever they want...
We'll see what they choose.
And we're taking it easy tonight.
The presents are all wrapped, most of our stuff for the trip is gathered and sitting on our bedroom floor and quite frankly, the laundry can just wait another day.
So tonight I'm taking the family to Dairy Barn for supper (big spender, aren't I?), then we're coming home and doing nothing.
Well, okay...I have to finish printing the Christmas letters, but other than that we're not doing anything.
I think I can get used to this! :)
