We were up this morning at 4:00AM. I said good bye to Jill and the kids and Tom took them over to the airport for their 6:00 AM flight back to Denver. We went back to bed and got up again just before 9:00. By then Jill and the kids were already on the ground and on the way home.
We took our time getting going, but once we did get going, we really got busy. We worked through mountains of sheets and towels to launder, toys and books to be sorted and stored, bathrooms to clean, and vacuuming and dusting and mopping throughout the house. By late afternoon we were finished, and too tired to care too much that the house was very quiet.
Still, I miss them.
Then kids are spending the night with their other grandma, and tomorrow they are all going camping for two nights. Tonight Jill is enjoying the quiet.
We'll now settle back into a sort of routine, as routine as it gets around here. There are yard projects to do, and Tuesday evening we have another soccer match to attend, this time a preliminary to defending the US Open cup. It will be played at the much smaller Star Fire sports complex.
I was looking forward to spending a bit of time on the patio this afternoon, given the forecast. But alas, persistent showers dampened that plan. I guess the recliner will have to do for now, once I get my exercises done, that is. It's time to get back to that routine too.
