The Weekend In My World

This has been a much anticipated weekend in the Robinson household. It marked the beginning of the NFL playoffs, a big rematch in the NBA, and a long awaited return to our non-holiday schedules.

On the sports front, I could not have been more excited about the games on Saturday. The Steelers had a home game against Jacksonville and the Pistons were hosting the Celtics. Neither game ended the way I would have liked. Both of my teams lost close games at home. On the plus side, the NFL playoffs are just starting and the NBA season is long from over. Plenty more sports to watch. Stayed tuned tomorrow night for LSU vs. Ohio State. Normally a Wolverine fan such as myself would not be rooting for the Buckeyes, but I would love nothing more than to see a Big Ten team knock off another SEC team.

As for the non-holiday schedule, I am not one to complain about paid time off, but days off in the middle of the week are not all they are cracked up to be. The week actually feels longer. At home, Nora has not been in school since the Friday before Christmas. Now Nigel and Nora are good buds, but they had become used to their new routines. Nora at school in the morning learning and playing with her friends, and Nigel home with Robin, doing his own thing. They have got to each other the last few days. It will be good for them, not to mention for Robin and I, for things to go back to normal. School resumes Tuesday!

Sunday has been a nice relaxing day thus far. Robin has been doing some of her proof reading for work and is now kicking back with some knitting. Nora and Nigel have spent sometime outside playing bubbles with a neighbor friend, and I am watching football, doing laundry and riping music for our sansadisk. Oh if everyday could be Sunday.

Goodbye for now...
