first full day at home

May 12, 2008

Today was our first full day at home. Ivan is still on his monthly vacation, due back any day now, hopefully as early as tomorrow, since our Dad wants to take us out for driving practice, and Ivan is the one who is best suited for that activity. I or Athena, can’t remember now, woke up this afternoon at almost one o’clock, which is very late for us. The body slept for nearly 11 hours continuously, save for our father waking us briefly at 10am to ask us if we wanted to have coffee with him. Apparently there was a power outage at his office, so he didn’t go to work until later. He is usually out of the house by 7am, at the latest. Whomever he had awakened, very groggily declined his offer after wavering and mumbling “maybe” and some other, since forgotten words. He said something like “if it’s easier, say no” to which one of us promptly replied “no.” Our body was asleep again perhaps two or three minutes later. 

After we woke up, one of us went outside and proclaimed “ahhhh, this feels so goooooood!”

55 degrees (if that….perhaps the outside temperature was slightly lower) felt like HEAVEN after days on end of sticky heat. The weather was otherwise rather yucky; it was raining for pretty much the entire day. Perhaps that caused our body to need extra sleep too, but I’m sure the main reason was simply recovery from moving and packing for the move. 

There’s more I’d love to say, but we have all agreed that we need to go to bed at a reasonable time (effective as soon as we got home) and our deadline for finishing up everything and heading upstairs to bed is MIDNIGHT AT THE LATEST! I have less than a minute to finish this before that time.
