Lately we have been working pretty much 10 hours a day. It's draining. That's the best way to describe it. I am lucky enough to be able to use an hour of vacation here and there as i wish. Today I used one of those hours. It's amazing to me how much smoother my life can be when I get out of work at 4pm. Tonight I was able to run to Old Navy after work, go get the kids, come home to dinner being ready, eat dinner, pack the kids up for a drive to Lowe's (where i purchased my new toy, a Dyson), stopped for slushies, come home, give baths, brush teeth, read a book and enjoy getting the kids to bed. No rush thru this, no saying no to some of the goofy moments the kids like to have. I would LOVE to be able to have this life everyday. Maybe someday, maybe?
Speaking of that drive to Lowe's..let me share a little "secret'" i heard this evening.
While pulling into our driveway, Riley says to me "Mom, I wanna tell you something but you cannot tell anybody. Just me" So of course my ears are ready and i say "ok honey, tell me"
"Brayden and Chloe are boyfriend and girlfriend! Isn't that amazing??" (these are 2 kids in Rileys
I dont have any new pics to post today because I recently had my hard drive crash on me, losing all of my pictures. I did get them retrieved, but I have not loaded them back on.
I will say goodnight for now, tomorrow brings another 10 hour day. Yipppeeee!!!
