Yesterday was a whirlwind...gym, school, play date for Michael and I. We came rushing in the door to get dinner on the table before Michael and I left for karate. Then, I heard 5 wonderful words...
"I'll take Michael to karate."
Oh my! Those five words were music to my ears. I needed some time just to unwind and relax. I have quite a bit of anxiety over the last couple of weeks. That little bit of time made the world of difference. And the fact that JP had cleaned the crock pot I left in the sink overnight. He was speaking my love language yesterday and I was so thankful for his gestures of love!
I had all these plans to do St. Patrick's Day activities with Michael, but I needed to get an oil change and my car looked over before a field trip next week. After waking up really early to get out there, I didn't really have much left for extras when I got home. I planned on pushing through, but Michael didn't seem interested either. So, I just let it go! He finished up his regular school work and we called it a day.
St. Patrick's Day celebration consisted of watching Veggie Tales about St. Patrick, listening to Adventures in Odyssey about St. Patrick and JP picking up shamrock shakes for every one after fencing. I guess I should count Lucky Charms for breakfast, maybe?
Michael is in bed, the older kids are watching a movie with some friends and I've loaded some new books on my kindle. Glad the busy-ness of this week is winding down and looking forward to the weekend together.
