I don’t know how it is where you live, but here in illi-noise, it is gorgeous. absolutely gorgeous. The temp’s feel more like late spring than late fall. the sun is shining, the leaves are falling, there are red holiday cups at starbucks, and all feels right with the universe.
this could also be because I am currently on a very relaxing get-away weekend with some dear friends. We just decided we needed a small little break from the everyday. and it has been awesome. No medical phone calls. No chest PT to keep the crap in Kendall’s lungs broken up. No shots. No meds. NO DIAPERS!!! No whining. Just time to breathe, restore, refresh. Laugh out loud at absolutely stupid stuff that my friends do to try to make me laugh (like attempt to dance like Beyonce).
Either way – it’s an absolutely beautiful day. and I want to enjoy every second of it. The cold and snow and dreariness are coming. I feel the need to soak up this sun and fresh air and laughter in a way that I haven’t felt before. I want to scoop up my babies when I get home and hug them and tell them how much I love them and missed them. I want to hear their stories of what they did this weekend with daddy (although if history proves anything, they probably spent most of the time cleaning up their pigsty of a room and/or basement playroom.) I wonder if I’ll go back to a fully painted bedroom. And as a side update – we still haven’t officially picked a color we agree on. We are up to 9 squares of sample paint on one wall. And i kind of just like the squares in varying shades of blue and now green. it’s kind of neat. It’s a splash of happy color.
to be nicely finished later. I am on to newer and more recent posts!
