This has kind of been an off week – we were in Milford last weekend for Easter and are going back again tomorrow for Eric’s alumni tournament. Lots of laundry, getting re-organized, then getting re-packed…sometimes I think we should have just stayed up there all week long. But I must say, there’s no place like home 🙂
Whenever we travel, Nora’s napping and night time schedule is always thrown off – I have come to the conclusion that there is really no way around it. We try and keep our times the same if we can, but our efforts usually go right down the drain by the end of our trip. So this week we did a lot of getting up in the middle of the night, long attempted naps in Mommy and Daddy’s bed and general boo-hooing from our normal Miss Happy Pants. But this also meant lots of cuddling, which I am totally o.k. with.
And what is a home for the elderly without birds, right? There is a big bird cage right at the entrance of her rehab center with about twenty teeny tiny little birdies flying around in it. All different colors and types. I rolled Nora over to the cage, not sure what she would think. She was mesmerized. We sat in front of the cage for about ten minutes singing Rockin’ Robin (I have changed the lyrics to Rockin’ Nora) and she just giggled the whole time.
We are going to Deanna Rose tomorrow and I can not WAIT! I remember going there as a little girl and am so excited to take Nora. She was so intrigued by the cows last weekend, that I’m hoping she will be interested in all the other animals there. I’m sure I will have plenty of pictures to post, as well as pictures from our trip back to Milford.
But right now, Eric and I are laying on the couch, letting our Z-Mans and onion rings from Oklahoma Joe’s digest. Dinner at our favorite place is always a great way to end the evening 🙂
