As far as Sundays go, they don't get much better than today.
Well, it might have been a little better if it had started out about 20 degrees warmer. And even a little better if I woke up next to my husband instead of in bed alone. But despite the chilly temperature and despite being minus a family member nearby, it was a pretty darn good day.
The kids and I made it to church on time this morning. That's no small feat.
I got to spend a little one-on-one time with Sammy while Rachel was at Nana and Papa's house this afternoon. I don't get to do that very often, and I actually enjoy sitting and talking with him.
I took a luxurious nap on the couch with the sun shining on me through the window, followed by a nice stroll outside with the dog.
For the first time in I don't know how long, I am engrossed in a book that actually makes me laugh out loud. I love it when stealing a few minutes to read here and there makes me feel like I am really indulging.
Looking to the week ahead, I have one big project I'd like to finish - the floor tiles in our front room and entryway. If I can get that done (with help, of course) and get the room put back together, I will be a happy camper. Happy, but no doubt sore and tired.
The kids have a short week this week; spring break begins Friday. At some point Steve and I will have to decide if, when, and for how long the kids and I will visit him in Pennsylvania next week. Any sort of vacation away from home means laundry needs to be finished, someone set up to watch the house and animals, bills paid, and all kinds of other little things taken care of before we leave. All worth it to see my hubby and for the kids to see daddy for a few days, though.
Here's to a very productive, very full week ahead.
