A welcome Saturday...

My daughter's soles of her feet are jet black.

My son has grass stains all over his knees.

There is grass and sand covering my kitchen floor.

There was much screaming and laughing for hours on end in my backyard as dozens of neighborhood children chased and slid and swung and climbed. They even got to play with Patrick as he threw balls from a lawn chair, trying to knock them unconscious with partially deflated bouncy balls.

My husband is STILL HOME and not working every waking hour of every single day....

My hand is holding a wine cooler and the night breeze is still drifting through my open window.

Today? Today has been GOOD....

Good days are refreshing. I also wanted to comment on your Easter pic post...I just LOVED that pic of the kids running/egg hunting in the backyard. That was sooo cute.

Also, hubby still out of work? That sucks. He looks so different in the latest pic than he does in the sidebar. Maybe that scruffy look could land him a modeling job. Seriously, I'm not kidding.

Thank goodness for days like that!

Sheila,

No, Patrick is working TOO much, actually. He has a job that he leaves for at 3:30 pm and gets home from at 7 am. Then he sleeps, gets up and says hello and heads off again. THEN, on the weekends, he is doing real estate... He's gone more than he's here.

And I agree, he's HOT. But I'm a bit biased. I'll tell him you said so, though... :)

We went to dinner at a friend's house on Thursday. After dinner, we broke out the Eyeclops Magnifying Toy to look at all the small stuff. The bottoms of Atlee's feet? Filled to the brim with dirt. I figured it was a good thing, because it means she's playing outside. But, it was sort of icky to see.

The fact that your are ending your day with a wine cooler I think says it all. That's just...awesome.
