Today I...

Today I...

Put all three boys on the bus to school.

Biked across town to a friend's house to pick up our new piano curriculum.
Decluttered the main floor surface areas.
Decorated for fall.
Wrote up three new songs with guitar chords.
Practiced those song on guitar.
Went to the store to buy bike locks and a few other things.
Sorted through and organized the costume box.
Had a nap.
Researched for my next scripture study outline.
Listened to two Focus on the Family broadcasts.
Found and made a new cookie recipe Juliette can eat.
Folded laundry.
Cuddled and snuggled with Juliette.
Read some books with Juliette.
Browsed through the new piano books.
Put away all the accumulation of stuff on the stairs.
Played the piano for fun, the first time in years.

Picked up the boys from the bus.

Today I feel great.  Today has been a testament to the sacrifices an introvert makes to be a stay at home mom.  I have a clarity about me that I haven't felt since Colin was one (seven years ago.)  I feel reawakened.  I have basked in the quiet calm that is here in our home.  I was recharged to welcome my three boys home.

This is a new era.  We are marching forward.  I am embracing it.

You are an amazing woman! (One of the many reasons why I married you).

I had a big smile on my face for you as I read that.
