Today was one of those days. It was long - filled with meetings starting at 7 a.m. and pretty much lasting the rest of the day - productive, stressful, and tiring. I really needed a mindless activity to de-stress when I got home, so I cut the grass while Jay took the girls to the pool. And when I sort of broke the lawn mower but still felt like I had ants in my pants, I started weeding the flower beds and threw my nemeses into the wheel barrow.
When the girls got home they found the wheelbarrow, pushed it to the gate and emptied out the weeds. For their hard work I felt like they earned a ride around the yard.
When the girls got real ants in THEIR pants, we headed in for baths and bed.
I love summer.
