On Monday I got up (after snoozing a few more times than usual, because . . . well, the kids didn't need to be pulled out of bed or anything), took my shower, decided to shave and put on approximate work clothes to establish some baseline of routine.

Then I went downstairs, made coffee, prayed the Morning Prayer Daily Office because I felt like I needed to start things that way, ate a bowl of oatmeal to stop myself from snacking through the morning, put away last night's dishes, and then set up my work station on the dining room table.

It's going to be a challenge to be productive. But it's definitely something that I need to do. I need to try and pull my routine into shape through this craziness or its going to become aimless and depressing really fast--for me at least.

Positive Things:
1. my kids are here--and we more often than not get along well.

2. I've been trying to get better at reaching out to my family on a more regular basis. So this will help with that goal rather nicely.

3. I'm closer to windows that show the coming Spring than I am at the office. And I don't have to turn my chair around to look out at the world.
