Tuesday was a busy day. From the moment I woke up, it seemed I was doing something that had to be done right then or perhaps even 10 minutes ago. Although I had spent the entire day with the boys, I felt like I hadn't really spent any time with them. So when the time arrived to begin preparing supper, I thought of the anxiety of feeding two hungry boys ("I'm hungry!"), of the number of times I would have to tell a little person that I couldn't read a book or go outside at the moment because I was preparing supper and I made a decision.
I grabbed the picnic blanket, a glass of wine, a bowl of homemade salsa (so I had kind of contributed to the meal), a bag of tortilla chips and some books and we headed outside to the backyard for some much needed outdoor time.
This last photo made all of us giggle.
If nothing else, I made one good decision that day.
