Just a Regular Day
Today was just a regular day. It was Thursday. Sometimes Thursday feels very weekend-y, and other times (like this particular Thursday) they just feel like a part of the boring old same week.
Weekends around here are pretty much the same as weeks minus church so Thursday feeling "week-ish" isn't really news.
ANYWAY, we hadn't even left the house all day. I did run to the library to grab a book on hold for school today while Derek was home for lunch, but other than that NADA.
I have no need or Diet Coke runs anymore, so I hadn't even done that! Tragic.
I really REALLY wanted to turn on a movie for my children. Sometimes I do cheat and let them watch during the week, maybe once every three weeks? But I couldn't bring myself when Utah is sort of under the impression that it is spring.
Hello, 55 degree weather, how are you?
So we went a'wandering instead. The big boys were an actual blur, hence the blurry picture.
Ezra has/had been a cranky-pants all afternoon and an attempt at a second nap had failed. So I thought the change in scenery would do him good. And it did. He was quiet and content the entire walk. Cutie baby.
And Oliver? Well, he stuck close and wore socks on his hands and basically chatted about life, the universe and everything as we walked. Two year olds, when not shrieking, are absolutely delightful.
Sometimes pretending it's spring when it is really only January 5th is the only option a mother has.
And I lost count of the number of robins we saw. IT'S NOT SPRING, GUYS!
We're ALL going to be bit sad when winter actually decides to start. I haven't even pulled out winter coats yet.
So, we walked and walked and collected pine needles that now litter my floor.
And I *might* have still turned on the tube for 30 minutes while I prepped gourmet grilled cheese and fruit salad.
It was a Thursday. That's it. Just a regular day.
