It's Thursday night. I flew down from Germany with the two little ones Tuesday. Claudia and the boys start driving tomorrow, so should arrive on Sunday. (Fingers crossed. Long drive.)
What's to tell: I had a month by myself, which was nice. No, for two weeks it was more than nice; it was great. Caught up on my reading, caught up on my sleep. But then it really started to pall. Apparently I like having my family around. By week four I was, plainly put, moping. So, I'm good with that being done.
That said, our newly minted three-year-old is making it very clear that being a single parent means an immediate shift back to sleep deprivation. Leah doesn't like going to bed! But she does like wandering around after bedtime! And waking up in the middle of the night because of bad dreams, or because she needs to pee, or simply for no reason at all!
Still: mustn't grumble. Jacob and Leah are both cheerful and healthy, and it's very nice to have them around.
Job stuff: project going great, client happy. Project ends in November -- specifically, at COB Friday November 11. What happens after that? There are various possibilities, but at the moment we truly have no idea.
What else... did I mention that I found some Dungeons and Dragons players here? So I've been running a campaign for about six months now. That'll end in November too, alas.
Meeting with a Deputy Minister first thing tomorrow morning -- so to bed.
