Sometimes mowing the lawn is the right choice. It's the choice I made tonight. Which put Ed in charge of bathing a little girl who only napped an hour for the second day in a row, who had a free for all with mashed potatoes and a baby spoon (and the mashed potatoes won) . And let's not forget two over-tired boys. Yep, mowing the lawn is sometimes the better choice for a stay at home mama.
While sitting and enjoying a beer that Ed brought out to me, I watched the second grade neighbor girl turn cartwheels in her front yard. When do you lose the ability to gracefully throw your body into a cartwheel spin and not pull multiple parts of your body out of whack? For a very very very short moment I felt like going over and giving it a try.
Another neighbor lady drove in from what must have been a long day at work. She has one high school daughter home now. I wonder what the quiet is like in her household. Does she miss escaping to lawn mowing duty....
I slept this morning instead of hitting the gym. Buns that ache tonight from Monday morning's class mean that sleep was the right choice.
Our house is near a fairly busy road and the traffic noise was something we didn't completely notice when we fell for this house. And some might be annoyed by it. But I love that I can tell when the world is waking up, settling in for the night, and it is what it is.
I'm getting cold time to venture back into the warmth of our house. I finally downloaded my pictures from the last 2-3 weeks. Prepare to be bombarded by posts from me...or maybe I will sum it all up in one post. Decisions. Decisions. One thing is for sure, my pjs are calling and the posts aren't happening tonight!
See ya later alligator!
