I've Been Working.......

.....not on the railroad, but on packing up the house. I haven't packed as much as Aaron, but today I worked on packing up my scrapbooking stuff. *sniff, sniff* The good part of doing this is that pretty soon, I'll have a room dedicated to an office/scrapbook room for the next few years. Wayhay! That's definitely a welcoming thought!

We went to Aaron's parents' house today for a bit of a barbeque, as it's supposed to piss down rain tomorrow. Good for me, as I'll be working tomorrow, too. A new thought is that I'm going to start charging a premium price for holidays....Everyone else gets paid bonuses for working weekends and holidays, so is this girl!

So I finished the book that I started when I was traveling. Keeping Faith, by Jodi Picoult was a pretty good read. I'm really beginning to like her work. And, having just now looked at her site, she's written more than I'd thought.

By the way, the twins are weaned. It's not as heart-wrenching as I thought it would be. They asked to nurse on Thursday morning, but on Friday didn't ask at all. So, I decided that that was that. I'm a little sad, but happy about it, too. They aren't so upset that they aren't nursing now, either, so that makes it so much easier on this little mamma. Erin's asked a few times to nurse, but I told her that we don't nurse the baby anymore, and that she's a big girl now. She just looks like a child whose plan has been foiled, but she's not shed any tears. *whew*

OK, off to get to bed early so that I can get a good night's sleep. Much going on this week! *bites nails that are already broken from packing*

I can't believe they weaned that fast! Good for all of you. I'm glad that the transition was made easier by those babies being wonderful about it. I, however, am a bit distressed I did not get anything on messenger telling me of the success.
And yes you should get extra for working the holidays.
Jodu Piccoult ROCKS!!!! Newest one is Vanishing Acts (will be buying it after I read the one I just bought today and after the new Harry Potter comes out :-S)
