Getting a Head Start

Day two of days is complete. The dishes are done. The lunches are prepped. The coffee is programmed. Some of the laundry is folded, the dishwasher is loaded.

I am loving day two.

One of the hardest things to do is come home from work – having anticipated needs, taken care of fires, and attempted to stay on task amidst distractions – is to come home from work and again have to clean up after everyone. I don’t know if it’s because we were at such opposite schedules that we couldn’t communicate our needs or desires. But, I am loving this day two of communicating, and helping, and doing the work together so we don’t all have to do it by ourselves.

And now, now, it’s almost 11pm, and the boys are in bed, and I’m having an appropriate quiet time before I venture off for some reading time.

I am hoping day three continues this trend.
