Today is a jammies-only kinda day. Well, with the exception of Jill and DH who insist on getting dressed as soon has their feet hit the floor. What-ev-er!! Jack and I are kickin' it in comfort (no need for style) thankyouverymuch.

It has been a nonstop week and today is a day to recover. They have had extended visits with the family they are moving in with and are completely wiped out when they return home. They don't nap and are back to loading up on things like chocolate milk and soda. All we can do is smile (and cringe on the inside). There's nothing we can do except pray that some of our suggestions for meals and snacks will be taken under consideration.

Jack and Jill are both getting sick. He has a gusher of a runny nose and she is sneezing. Being exhausted isn't helping. They'll be riding the couch today and that is that. Jill came here with the flu and I'll be danged if they move back under the weather.

Tomorrow the kids are back at the relatives home for an overnight and we won't see them again until Tuesday afternoon. They are happy to be here and to spend time there, as well. We believe they feel safe and loved in both homes and that's huge. They're totally going with the flow and so far, the transition process seems to be a success.

Little troopers, indeed.

Well I'm glad that the kids seem to be taking it all in stride and that it is going well!

I personally am like your DH and Jill. Right after I get up I need to shower and get dressed right away.

I'm glad things are going well through the transition. You seem to be handling it well and must be leading by example.

Today I vote for a jammies day! :)

I've posted comments a couple times but am mostly a lurker.

My heart goes out to all of you. I don't even know what to pray for besides wisdom and comfort. And I am.
