The Sun will come out tomorrow and even if it's only figuratively I'm okay with that.

Today has been one of those days. You could call it the "post holiday let-down". I skipped pilates because I was really tired but realized later I should have gone because it's a nice start to my day and usually puts me in a good mood. We made chocolate chip cookies before lunch and that was good but attitudes and behaviors quickly slid downhill after lunch. Clayton refused to take a nap and Ivan fell asleep when I told him to lay on the couch and not move for two minutes. (I was kind of hoping he would sleep...) but all four of my children decided that I needed to work on my patience today and I did not pass that test with flying colors. And at some point I discovered that I miss-buttoned my flannel shirt and was thankful that the only place I went today was Teacher Lynn's house for Hannah's violin lessons. Erik took Hannah with him when he went to his meeting at church and the boys are watching Veggie Tales Pirate Movie, so the day is ending well, and all's well that ends well, right? Tomorrow will be better? For "Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it."

I'm working on my patience right now trying to transition Noah to a twin bed. He keeps getting out and climbing to the top bunk. UGHGHGHGHGHGHGGHGH I can't think of any effective punishments other than strapping him down! lol

How I miss you. Oh! how I miss you! Texting was a lovely treat tonight. I told Maggie just yesterday that there are really very few people I miss on a regular basis. But you are one of them. Fancy that!

Few thoughts:) I really like the red shoes picture. I get those spots on my tongue sometimes:) And I hope the sun came out for you today:) Thanks for being real. Thats what I loved about you when we met! I was reading some other "mom blogs" tonight (people I dont know) and it all just seemed a little too "not real" if that makes any sense:) miss u.
