A friend on Facebook asked for a general update on our doings, so here it is!
My hubby’s been getting tons of hours at work, so we’re on a pretty decent routine. Routine is nice. We like routine. It goes like this:
We get up
The kids clean their rooms
We do schoolwork
Then I read aloud and the kids take turns on the computer.
Lately it’s been Minecraft all the time, because the kids have discovered the glory of mod packs. We have a Sims mod and a boat mod and a Pokemon mod and today I’m slated to install a dreams/nightmares mod. They really wanted the McDonalds mod, but it’s down for reworking. They also really got into this one Galacticraft mod where you build a rocket and visit the moon and Mars.
The baby’s two months old now and getting fatter. She has to be the center of the party all the time, and she’s begun to smile and coo. They’re so cute at this age! She only sleeps when I’m there, meaning she sleeps at night and at nap time, but no other time. Babies just hate being babies. They want to do stuff, and when they can’t, they get so mad.
I’ve been writing, mostly on my iPod while rocking the baby and overseeing people taking turns on the computer. Just finished a novella and I’m working on revisions to another story. Also writing a new one that I can’t seem to stay away from. All on the iPod! It’s amazing how much you can do when you jot down a paragraph here and there.
We finally got to see Brave and Frozen. Good movies! I don’t know why Brave got so much hate. Stereotypes make for great humor, and the mom is such a cute bear.
And Frozen is wonderful. It’s worth seeing for the animation of the frost and ice alone. It’s definitely the Snow Queen story, just tightened up. And instead of a girl looking for her brother, its two sisters.
So yeah, just normal and boring. After the craziness of the last few years, boring is really really nice. 🙂
