A new rhythm

Ba-dum. Ba-dum. Ba-da-da-da-da-dum.

That? Is an irregular heartbeat.

That? Is my world right now.

He's home, but it's not a weekend. It's not vacation. This isn't "fun time." Soooo... what exactly IS this rhythm we're in? This is the waiting time, isn't it? Wait and see. Wait and see. Hurry up and wait and see...

I can't quite capture the mood of the house. We aren't upset or depressed or floundering... yet.
We are focusing on the possibility of his interview from YESTERDAY (can you believe that?) being the silver lining on this turn of events. That we will find ourselves in a position where he is receiving TWO paychecks for a few weeks instead of the alternative which shall not be named on this blog...

Oh, and the third strike from this weekend? Our tv officially died. This time, to the point that Patrick can't jerry-rig it. Nice, right? At least all of the problems are fixable. A tv is expendable. A job is replacable. A basement can be cleaned. But people are a little more delicate than electronics and cardboard boxes...

My family is healthy and happy. If I focus on the "Now" that we are living, it isn't horrible. In fact, other than the 3 inconveniences I mentioned (love the downplay, don't you?) life is pretty good: Patrick and I are relaxed and united. Justin has been slowly adjusting to the new methods of accepting responsibility. Evan isn't fighting with his best friend anymore. And Corinne has been her usual cheerful, adorable self. It's a freakin love-fest over here! Whooot.....

Aren't we all glad that this is happening NOW, when I'm not in the midst of a gloom and doom mood? A month ago, this would not have been a pretty picture...

I'll leave you with a photo op. Justin wanted a picture of himself and Evan together. I thought, "Awww! How sweet! He wants a picture of them hugging!"

Yeah. No. He told me later on that he was squeezing Evan's neck and stomach and wanted a picture of THAT. Nice...

Unfortunately for him, Corinne was NOT being left out of the pictures...
Twister from the basement which had been forgotten about until the water altered what were upstairs toys and what were downstairs toys... Also, the big one is still banned from electronics, so board games and card games are BIG around here. (Maybe it's a blessing that the tv is broken???)
Notice the younger brother being squashed by the older brother behind the girl with the tongue fetish?

Shoot. If only THEY could have controlled themselves! She was nowhere near the shot...

Such a shy girl.

I finally just edited her out of a picture. It looks sweet, doesn't it? Justin told me that he was using a wrestling move on him.... BOYS!
