The little things

I took the boys to the gym earlier, got in a 2 mile run, came home, made lunch, put G down for his nap, put D in his room for quiet time (including setting his timer, which amazingly enough is actually still working!).

And then... (drum roll please)

I was able to get dinner in the crockpot, take a shower, dry off completely and get dressed.

But wait, there's more!

I then put my hair up (I'm in ponytail land these days since I'm in such desperate need of a haircut), put on makeup, checked my email, checked my message board, and am now writing this post.

D is playing in his room, G is still sleeping and I am getting an honest to goodness break that is actually long enough for me to accomplish a few things. I'm sure G will wake up any second, and D's timer is also about to go off, but I feel like I can tackle the afternoon with a renewed sense of energy.

I tell you, it's the little things that can really make or break your day.

I LOVE days like that! I hope this type of day repeats for you for a long time to come. Isn't it amazing how absolutely refreshing it is to have that break?!
