We'll be starting the New Year fresh and new. BB is back to college in Japan. My brother and his family are back to Florida. My sister and her family are back to Texas. The house is suddenly quiet, except that the girls have turned the living room upside down as habitats for animals, pulled the stuffed animals into families and are playing very loudly together.
We have some big changes coming - new material, new schedules, new spaces and a new job for me.
Next week I'll demo my new work schedule with the kids not doing school, then we'll adjust and start the week after.
Happy New Year and New beginnings.
