Whew. Today was one of those days.
Wake up at 4 and go sleep in a sleeping bag on the floor in the girls room because Mia is crying.
Officially get out of bed (off the floor) at 7 to start the day.
Leave the house and begin the errands.
Trash to the dump.
Plastic and cans and cardboard to recycling center.
Bank to deposit money.
Magazines to the paper dumpster.
I was feeling tuckered out and overwhelmed. Kids are sick of the car. Buckle the car seats up again and again and find the other Croc that went under the car. And hand a kid a sippy cup. And "Mommy, my fingers are stuck together from my lollipop."
As we finally started home to eat and take naps (hallelujah!!!), Natalie Merchant came on the radio.
"These are the days, you'll remember.
Never before and never since,
I promise, will the whole world be warm as this.
And as you feel it, you'll know it's true that you are blessed and lucky.
It's true that you are touched by something that will grow and bloom in you."
Blessed and lucky. Might just make a sticker for my car. :)
