This week has been a wild one. We spent about three nights with my folks (thank God they had electricity!) and since I work at an electric cooperative I've been working a lot of extra hours. I am so proud of Payton. She has done really well with the change in routine and really enjoyed being out at my mom's for several evenings. We were so blessed to have a family member that still had power (90% of the county was without electricity).
We did add a new little member to our family. Our babysitter had several kittens and they found one that was perfect for Payton. It loves to be held and seems to be pretty good with the kids (I'm actually suprised it hasn't been squeezed to death yet!). We asked Payton what she would like to name the kitten and after many responses of "kitty" she finally said "Thomas!". (We figured the name would either be Thomas or choo choo train since those are her favorite things :) I must say I have already fallen in love with this cat.....he curls up by me when I go to sleep and just purrrrs and purrrs.
I will say I think I have pulled out of the latest slump and seem to be back to myself. It seems a lot of us bloggers have had some rough times lately. Seems like we're all ready to ring in the new year!!
