We're starting to settle in again

Yup, starting to develop something of a routine here, which is good.  My schedule keeps changing, which is fine with me,  I am getting more work, which is good, though I will miss some of the more relaxing mornings I have at the moment.

We are also into the rhythm of eating like Catalans, and it is working REALLY well.  We eat together most every lunch and dinner, and it is really really really wonderful.  On top of that, since I finish work by 1 at the latest and the girls don't get here till 2, I can cook.  Not only can I cook, I can cook at a relaxed pace when I am not tired.

Know what I remembered today?

I like cooking if I have the time and mental space to be a bit creative, to make something a little different and a little special.  It's been a very long time since I felt that way.

So very glad we were forced into this system.

Suits me JUST fine.

Some consider routine a bit of a bore - I consider it wonderful - especially when the rest of the day goes haywire!

Good for you.

Some routine is a very good thing indeed. It frees up needed mental space for something more interesting than trying to figure out where the heck you're supposed to be and where your kids are.

Helen, I couldn't agree more. The kids even commented that the food is better and more interesting now that we're dining at lunch time. Nothing like enough time and energy for making a better meal.
