It’s so good. I don’t even care that it’s supposed to snow again this week. Well, I care a little but I’m choosing not to think about it. I kind of can’t even go there right now.

Sometimes, left to my own defenses, I will take the children on an adventure. That means undertaking an activity or outing that is probably more ambitious than it needs to be on a day that I won’t have any backup but that’s how I roll, I guess.
