We're finally back home, back to work and school, and remembering what it's like to have responsibilities. We did gain one responsibility over the break - a cat. Yes, we surprised the kids with a kitten for Christmas, and they have named her "Flicka". So far I'm not regretting that addition too much, although I do resent being the resident climbing post.
This is a busy week, as Biniam is trying out for the basketball team at school, we have a big conference at church this weekend, and I have decided that now is a good time to paint/decorate/organize the majority of our house. New year, new motivation!
