I managed to get an uninterrupted day of work in today and it was glorious. My mother-in-law watched the Twins so I could get some work done. I even got to go up to work and rescue my desk plants before they died of neglect. The girls got to play all day. The Hubs worked on the yard some more. It felt amazing to get something done and I know The Hubs feels the same way.
I realized today when I brought more files home that working at the kitchen table just wasn’t going to cut it. We have an office type space in the house but we don’t use it. I feel isolated in there and it’s become a landing space for all of the things we need for our various hobbies. A bunch of acoustic guitars, tons of markers and crayons and paint, fabric, and instruction book, and pretty much anything else you could think of lives there. It’s a total mess. Today I took it on and cleaned it up and made it into an area where I can work while the girls play without wrecking the rest of the house. Another win for the day.
Despite enjoying the kids being gone for a little bit we were all happy to see each other when I picked them up. Yes, I need breaks sometimes, but I also love my snuggles every night and it is pretty great to get to spend more of them now. Of course, as soon as they got home they wanted to go in the backyard and swing. So we sat outside and watched the sky turn pink and the sun go down.
Today, all was right with the world. These are the days that keep me going.
