Back to Normal


The Brotherhood is open again today and I won’t lie, I’m pretty sad about it.

I’m glad that I’ll have another awesome option for dinner, but I’m also sad that Chris is back to work, for several reasons:

Well, maybe it’s just one reason: I don’t want to share his cooking with the rest of the island.

Yes, he is THAT amazing.ย  I don’t know how you people who didn’t marry chefs survive.

It’s more than that, though.ย  It was so wonderful to have him at home — he did an unbelievable amount of work on his vacation (the three C’s — childcare, cooking, and cleaning) so that I could have a vacation of sorts, too.ย  And it was just generally nice to be able to see him for more than a few waking hours each day.ย  I know Nora loved having her Dada home and I really did too.ย  We had a slow easing back to normal this week; he was at the restaurant getting ready during the days and home in the evenings, but today it’s back to normal and I’m sad.We want more Dada time.

    It is too bad that Feb. is such a short month. ๐Ÿ™ But if you think about it (and this isn’t to discredit or lessen what you’re feeling) lots of folks only get 1-2 weeks of vacation a year and work so far from home that the hours they spend away from their family is as great or greater (I think of all those Poughkeepsie commuters who spend 2+ hrs each way going to work in NYC…). At least Christ is a short walk away and you can go to the Brotherhood! Getting a nice meal there is certainly a decent employment benefit. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hang in there!
