I don't know if it's because it's spring and the days are longer and we getting more sunshine, but I am feeling good and feeling like anything and everything is possible. Like I could take on the world and do it all. What all is I am not sure yet but I am feeling it. The winter thaw, the spring awakening. Only complaint I have is all the dog poop that is now surfacing from under the snow. And maybe the crazy ass dreams that I have been having. Does anyone else have crazy dreams in the spring? I think it's a thing because it happened to me every year.
This past week was all about the littles. Coco was in the hospital with some nasty bronchitis shit all week which means we had Miley and Judah for the week. We had pretty good routine going on. Wake up, make breakfast and beat on the mr. Off to school they went and we had a few hours to do what we could do (like chop apart huge trees, sew chair cushions, stock up an food because they eat A LOT, and clean their house and bedrooms). Then pick up and conversation on the way back to our house, snack time, homework, drawing and game playing, make dinner, go for a walk, watch some Iron man (they had a Iron Man movie marathon going on), nighttime reading, brush the teeth then bed. And that was not just the littles, that was all of us. We function well together. Then Coco the hulk (the meds they had him on made him into hulk monster.. it was amazing) was released from his hospital room and is doing great and the littles are all at their home and now I miss them. But at least I don't have to sit through any more Iron man so I am ok with that. And the mr and I deep cleaned the house yesterday of all the sticky..... How do they make everything sticky? Those littles. They are freaking awesome.
Today, we are childless with a clean house and it's Sunday so Yeah!!!! The mr is probably going to go off and work on his fly fishing cabinet and I need to go through all the seeds we got at the seed swap yesterday. Plus I rented like 10 books from the library and have been getting back into painting with acrylics so I think I am going to spent the day doing just that, planting some seeds, reading, and painting. And we have plans for a good long walk. It's all about taking it easy today. And hey, it's spring so it's time to spend all the time outside!
