Feeling Good

I know it is only 11 a.m., but I seem to be doing better today. I unpacked the last 2 suitcases, steam cleaned the carpet, did laundry and washed the laundrey room floor. However, to be honest, I just unpacked the "guts" of the suitcases onto the dining room table. It still made me feel better.

I also just called Wolf Camera and told them about the accident. They were not thrilled, but I am bringing in my camera for a new one or a repair. Whoo hoo! In the meantime, I have asked Mike to hunt down my old camera that he is now using so I can post some pictures for everyone.
Harrison told me he loves having a sister. Piper is the perfect age difference and I am so happy she is not a baby. A part of me wished I would have known her then, but she may not be the person that she is today so how could I not be overjoyed with the daughter that I have. I am so proud of Harrison and he has been giving me SO MUCH love. It has been great to spend so much time with him.
Update: It is 3:30 and we are fading fast. It was a bit weird driving a car after almost a month. We ran errands and it went well except for Harrison almost slamming his sister's head in the door 2x. I am sure that my new neighbors that I have not met think I am evil for screaming so loud. Oh well! Harrison also received a wonderful compliment at McD's. A woman came up to tell me how adorable he is. As I was thanking her, she said the reason I think he is so adorable is the way he talks to his sister. That melted my heart. He had been showing her how to eat a Happy Meal and it was a bunch of really sweet "watch Brother...listen to Brother....good job...open your mouth so I can see if you have swallowed your food...Brother is proud of you." I was so touched that a stranger would notice his tender heart, which certainly was not appreciated at Wolf Photo where he and Piper were rolling all over the floor, banging into displays, and yelling.
