And Then There Are Days Like These

The last two days have been absolutely wonderful. The kids (amid the minor daily melt-downs) have been fun and for the most part agreeable. Even the babysitting gig yesterday went really well.

Todd and I both got paid yesterday, I then paid the bills and we still have money in our bank account! It's the end of the month...how cool is that? Now to tuck the rest into savings.

I took the kids to the Aquarium today, solo. Despite the stroller falling backwards due to the heavyweights seated in the back (Connor & Carly) it was a perfect little get-away. It was followed by lunch with my sistah-suzy and on the way home all of the kids fell asleep, the best part is that through the transfer from car to bed....they all stayed asleep!

3 Kids, taking a nap in the afternoon at the same time. Whatever shall I do with myself? I guess I should go and fold the two baskets of laundry calling my name before Todd gets home from his hunting trip needing some empty baskets to throw all of his stinky duds into.

Man, today (and yesterday), life is good. You really do have to have the bad days to help you realize that even a simple day or two can count as good ones. Nothing eventful, just happiness.
