Things are slowly, slowly getting back to normal around here. The river has dropped a lot in the past few weeks so the hard task of cleaning up sandbags and dikes has started. This means that roads are opening around my suburb and evacuees may be able to go home soon.
There have been some good things to come out of this disruption in my life:
The early wake up and bus departures has given me time. I can drop off the kids and be home before 0830. If I am smart, I use the time to do chores and my house is looking better and better because of it.
Emptying out my basement to prepare for possible flooding/sewer backup (that never came, thank goodness) has given me the opportunity to purge our belongings and get rid of toys, books and clothes that we don't need anymore.
Congregating at the bus stop every morning and afternoon has given me the opportunity to meet the parents of a couple of Emmett's friends. Hopefully some more playdates can happen because of this.
There is always a silver lining, right?
