I feel extremely productive today...not that I've actually worked on anything...produced anything...baked anything (I did fry 2 eggs this morning) - but today i feel like "me." We are in Florida for a week visiting parents and siblings (grandparents and cousins to our littles.) Our beach experience this morning was a total success....no sunburns, no wailing or knashing of teeth, no shark attacks to be noted....Brady was quite concerned about being swept away by the ocean and was almost too content to be on the safe shore builing the best sand castle ever. Trini on the other hand LOVED the water and giggled as soon as she was the sea...and would NOT stop laughing with every splash and mouthful of salty water.
Zac's knee is healing but not well enough that he could get in the water...sniff sniff. We're having tons of fun with Andy's clan and the kids love their cousins and all the toys. Trin walked into her cousin Kaitlyns room and said "wow....there are toys EVERYWHERE!" Tristan slept through the night last night and at this VERY moment all three kids are asleep...and have been for a full 3 hours.
So...no floors have been swept today...no laundry done - BUT I feel productive in the sense of I have enjoyed the day...I have laughed without effort...true honest laughter that has started from my toes, crept up my body and spouted out of my mouth...I have enjoyed two cups of coffee uninterrupted and Mama C is coming over with cinnamon rolls and mashed potatoes and meatloaf....could life be sweeter?
