I'm liking it.
Each day has certain things that happen. Every day we cook, we clean up, do some laundry, wash dishes, tidy the bathrooms.
Tuesdays we usually have my mom visiting while my dad goes bowling, and then they stay for dinner. Sarah also has a voice lesson on Tuesday mornings, and after I drop her off I go to the dairy and then swing back to pick her up.
Wednesday mornings are cello lessons for Rachel, then in the later afternoon she and Sarah leave for Ultimate Frisbee.
Peonies coming up.
Thursday or Friday I grocery shop.
We are almost done with school for the year - only 15 more days!
Sunday's are always church days.
I like having a rhythm to my week, don't you? This 'schedule' leaves plenty of room for hospitality, being spontaneous, helping Tim with work if he needs me.
In the evenings, Tim reads aloud, or their is a movie or show watched on Netflix or Amazon. Lately, I've been doing some stretching exercises in the evening then getting ready for bed, and watching Fixer Upper on Netflix. Some of the kids will climb in bed with me. It's this hanging out time, laughing and enjoying being together that I love. Tim will come in, too.
Lately Kyle likes to tuck us in, which is hilarious. Even if he is already in bed, when we get settled for the night, he comes in does a belly flop on our bed between us, and hugs us and kisses me, then he jumps on Tim and they wrestle around a bit, and have all that awesome bonding. It gets a little bit crazy, but I wouldn't stop it for anything in the world.
I have a good life. I'm thankful that God has given me eyes to see the beauty in it, even when it is crazy, or there is stress from outside sources. And there frequently are those stresses.
So, what do your days look like? Let's chat in the comments.
