Fun week

Hmmm, don’t know where to start. The last 10 days, we have just been visiting friends or having friends over, and all socializing is around food, so I’m now afraid to step on the scale. My clothes are already telling me what has happened.

AK (that is how A refers to himself now) tried skiing this weekend. He’s liking it, although he comes back completely exhausted. He’s had a fun week of movies with friends and sleepovers. All the plans I had for him (reading, music, math etc) didn’t fit anywhere. It is probably going to be tough for all of us to get back to our routines.

Today we went to Cambridge, after probably 2 years. I keep thinking we need to go to Boston more often, but somehow never works out. Added attraction was that we went with another family. First we went to the Harvard Muesum of Natural History. The kids enjoyed the huge collection of fossils, animal skeletons, birds etc. It was too much to see everything in the 2 hrs we spent there. We also looked at the Glass flowers collection which is quite amazing. The kids were getting hungry and  sleepy, so we headed to the Bombay Club for their huge lunch buffet and their great location and views. The kids did a so-so job but we all ate until we couldn’t get up. Reached back home by 4 pm or so and had a lazy, relaxing evening.

I’m dreading the return to work/school on Wednesday. The kids’ schedule had gone completely whacky, so we put them in bed today by 10 pm and hope to get back to original schedule in 2 days!
