Getting back to normal.

I am here, sitting in my living room. At last.

You see, this week we had our house fumigated. But because it’s a school week, we had to live life as normal. From a hotel.

I’ve become pretty good at vacations with the kids (which are always made more complicated by LK’s allergies). But on a vacation, the kids are game for trying new things. When they know they have to go to school- living in a hotel goes from being fun to being a nuisance.

While we had a microwave/fridge combo (that took me back to dorm living), we still ate out every night. While I couldn’t really think about anything this week (I didn’t get much sleep), I did blog each day. Those’ll be going up next week. Enjoy the insanity.

In other news, my hair is now blue. I went to my stylist to have her put on some toner and she tried some ChromaSilk Vivid blue instead and it’s BLUE. I love it, but I’m still getting used to it.

I’m also getting a lot of attention from the parents at the Oldest Kidlet’s school. One mom stopped me to say that she was jealous because any style or color I try with my hair, I look adorable. It’s a nice compliment, but it was a little surprising. How often do you stop a relative stranger to compliment them? I smiled, said thank you, and recommended my stylist. What else was I supposed to do?

I still have a long list of things to do now that we’re home. Laundry to wash and a mountain of toys to put in their right place (the boys might have been overjoyed to see them again). Not to mention getting back to my writing routine. That is something I’ve truly missed.
