Well, spring is in the air. And today is the first day of spring break, beautiful, awash in warm sunshine and potential. My family is up and excited by the prospect of a week off. What to do, what to do… I’ve gone swimming and three loads of laundry are in progress. I noticed a lot of garden chores that need doing when I came home from swimming. I am sitting upstairs trying to think what to write. The kids are downstairs singing “I’m blue, da ba dee da ba dye da ba dee da ba dye, if I were green I would sigh da ba dee da ba dye!” They have made blueberry pancakes and cleaned the kitchen. I am overjoyed and grateful but now I don’t know where all those important papers are that were piled on the center island. My husband has finally gotten into the shower and is singing, at the top of his lungs, little ditties of his own creation. I sit here still trying to think what to write for slice of life post. My eldest daughter comes in and starts telling me a story of the complicated relationship shiftings in her high school. I try not to let my eyes glaze over. My second eldest daughter comes in to tell me we are out of toothpaste. I tell her to start a list. The boys are in the backyard now screaming with glee and chasing wild bunnies in the bushes. Perhaps I will quietly close the door and take a nap.
