In an hour, spring break will officially be over. There won't be another one quite like this. Cutecumber learned to say "socks" and "chip". The Scientist told me I was "the best mom in the whole world" without prompting. Ms. Thang had a great time at her dads and came home looking refreshed and relaxed. Not a sight you see often on a soon-to-be 13 yr old. Everything is life threatening these days.
I had some moments where I wished school would start again and my house would stay clean for more than a blink, but today, the last day, I let it all go to the wind and we had a fantastic day. A perfect day. The kids treated each other with kindness, and my honey and I shared laughs and held hands. One of those days that makes a million bad days still worth it all.
I'm ready for the old routine again, but with a new state of mind. Spring break did it's job. I feel a mile away from "the edge" instead of two steps away with a stick of short-fused dynamite in my pocket.
I love my life. xoxox
