It’s almost 7 a.m. Last night we were outside until 8 (for around an hour I guess) playing with Keeley, watering stuff, taking pictures, etc. We all showered, and it was a light dinner earlier, so there wasn’t much to do but turn the dishwasher on after Keeley went to bed. I had a hard time sleeping, getting to sleep, you name it. By 5 I was up, checked email and all that good internet stuff, then got dressed and was out the door before 6. We needed coffee filters (almost out, that’s dangerous!) and some cash for my niece’s birthday card. I couldn’t believe when I got back no sound was emanating from the place. I put the few things I bought away, filled out the card, stuck the money in it, put it and some snacks in my purse for the road (we’re headed for family later today), made coffee and checked all my stuff again… and it’s quiet. That never happens. The sun is coming up behind me, blinding me. It’s going to be another hot one.
Will we have another Sunday as just 3? I don’t know. Since our church is later, we’ll have to skip, we’re expected for Sunday lunch at noon, and it’s a 1.5 hour drive. We’re supposed to have earlier church services starting this fall, which will be nice. It’s hard to keep Keeley calmed down, she loves church and mostly the toys in the nursery. Poor kid. She’s always raring to go, and we have to tell her it’s not time yet.
Hmm, and I hear little feet thumping upstairs… so much for the quiet, but I’ll cherish these moments while they last. Sleepy eyes, tousled hair… waking up daddy..
