Although we have done some real work in the past couple of days the majority of Catherine's time has been taken up playing either the Logical Journey of the Zoombinis or Zoombini's Mountain Rescue. And when I say majority, I mean it. She's putting in 6 to 8 hours a day. And Harry has been spending the same amount of time glued to her side, watching.
I don't mind. Catherine and Harry, although they don't have any limits on such things, aren't usually video or PC game zombies. They'll go a week or two without touching the computer/Gamecube/XBox/Ninteno DS (with me and the husband however it's a different matter). And this is the Zoombinis, a series of games famous for it's fantastic and addicting approach to logic and critical thinking.
So I'm happy.
I'm happy anyway though. This was my husband's first week working for his new company and it's been wonderful to see him come home tired but happy. And the schedule! He works real 40 hour weeks and just weekdays. I can't even communicate how wonderful this is after 10 years of irregular shift work. I can plan things like grocery trips and they can happen at the same time and on the same day every week! The benefits are amazing and the pay great but the regular schedule is the thing that I keep smiling like an idiot over. That and the fact that my husband comes home smiling like an idiot because he's so happy.
