back to the new normal

After being in for a month, Jake went back to Virginia today. It was nice seeing him (and Amelia) for an extended length of time. Who knows if that will ever happen again? It was also nice having some company for dinner. And, I really hit it lucky having him home for the two snow storms. Haha.

While he was in, we worked on a puzzle that we’ve been working on for over a year. I guess I’m going to have to wrap it up myself because I just want it to be done at this point. We also played a new game I got for Christmas, Go. It’s fun, but we’re still figuring out the rules. It seems simple, but it is not. I’ll probably take it on our cabin trip this summer, which I just made reservations for this week. I’m already looking forward to it!

He’s not scheduled to be in again until May (for a work thing). I guess it’s possible they’ll be in at some point between now and then, but it would probably just be for a weekend. So I guess I just need to be thankful for the time I did get to spend with him.
