It's been a good day. No particular reason, it's just been a good day. Just like Tuesday was a not so good day for no particular reason. Work has gone smoothly and I've been indulging in a little daydreaming about the upcoming weekend.
My mom and dad are coming to town tomorrow morning and plan to get the kids from Heather's so they can spend some time together. They have a wedding to attend on Saturday evening, and then they are returning to Louisiana Sunday with the kids! Now you see why I have been doing a little daydreaming. They will be keeping bringing them back to us Thursday afternoon, so we have a lot of scheming and planning to do.
I realized (with a little thrill in my chest) that we can go to church Sunday evening for our small group and not have Nathan and Grace in tow. We can stay after and visit for as long as we want to without worrying about getting Gracie out of the nursery, or constantly keeping Nathan in check as we try to have an adult conversation. When you have kids, it's the little things that make such a difference!
We are actually planning to take Wednesday off together so we can go see a movie and maybe spend some well-deserved time at Barnes and Noble. It will be nice to have some one-on-one alone time. We were able to get away together when we went to Florida, but most of our time was spent with family. This time, we can just hole up together and do whatever we want.
Oh, the joy! the bliss!
Of course, I will be missing Nathan's questions and Gracie's little face by the time I go to bed Sunday evening, but not enough to have them brought home early. I intend to enjoy every moment of peace and quiet as long as it lasts.
