….I see spring. I smell it, too — it’s been wet outside and it smells like worms. You know, that after-rain-all-clean smell.
I see a 6 year old playing legos while watching Johnny Quest – the original episodes, of course…. a 4 year old playing with one of my scarves… there’s a sweet 8 month old sitting in his crib, looking deceptively cute compared to the amount of sleep he’s getting – and giving his parents – overnight.
I see laundry. Mountains of it. Clean, folded, but languishing in laundry bins. Must. Put. Away. Today.
I see boxes in the corners of rooms — the beginnings of our move, now less than a month away.
I see the sweet comments you’ve all left and I rejoice..
I see a 10-year old writing his essay for today – in a much better mood than he was while doing long division…
And I smell the remainder of our lunch – roasted veggies – peppers, onions, and asparagus [!!!] – with balsamic vinegar – in my case, served on a whole wheat wrap with goat cheese. It is entirely possible that that was the finest meal I’ve eaten. Ever. Easy peasy, so clean and healthy – I dunno. Felt great. Kinda smells like hope to me.
Have a wonderful Monday. I’m off to soccer. again. And I love every minute of watching my star play – 3 goals in each of 2 games over the weekend. He’s a rockstar!
