Today has been a much needed day of smiles and laughter within our Fortress of Solitude...minus the solitude part. Hubby was home with us all day long, and it was so nice to have the resemblance of a real live familial unit. (Sidenote: for all you single moms out there, my hat is off to you. I don't know how you do it.) We did some things around the house, played with the kids, ate dinner together, watched a movie...it was so ordinary. And so wonderful.
Sister was cracking me up today. A running list of funny things she said:
- Singing the Kelly Clarkson song Behind These Hazel Eyes, "Here I am, once again, I'm foreign infant geeses..." (it's actually 'torn into pieces')
- While making lentil stew, "Mom, is the mental stew ready?"
- Picking up our children's Bible, "I'm going to read the book of God."
Man, that girl is adorable.
It was nice to be reminded how great my life really is. I love my man. I love my kids. And I'll go to bed tonight with a clean kitchen.
Life is good.
