Errrr, I've been busy.
Our flight arrived in Minneapolis at the bleary hour of 5:33 am on Wednesday morning. We spent most of the day in bed, catching up on sleep. Thursday and Friday, I worked; Friday, Squeeze's parents were here and spent the night; Saturday, we went to a family party at his sister's house. Starbeans got to play with all of his cousins. The almost-2 year old was very interested in him; he kept on pointing at him and signing "baby". They are going to be great pals!
We spent today getting ready for Squeeze's new job. He'll be working 3 am to 7 am, five days a week. The hours are horrific, but each of us working part-time equals one full-time income. It will be good. We are hoping for a smooth transition, especially for poor Squeeze. He is getting up at 2:00 am tomorrow morning. Yes, that is 3 hours from now. As the Minnesotan Swedes say, "Uff-da!"
Wish us luck!
