Take Five

The girls woke us up at the ass-crack of dawn this morning. I think they need to go to bed later - we've been putting them down around 6:30, but tonight we're moving it back to 7. Being woken up at 5:30 on a Sunday morning just isn't cool.

After vainly attempting to get them to sleep with us for a little bit, we surrendered and went downstairs. We had breakfast and then I remembered that I am now the proud owner of a subscription to the Sunday New York Times. So I sprinted out to the front walk, retrieved my shiny new paper and went inside.

That Canadian Boy I Married had made coffee, bless his little cotton socks, and we sat down with our steaming cups.






Then we drove ourselves half-crazy by trying to solve the crossword puzzle. We're still not done, but we're trying. Together. Which was kind of nice.


We listened to a little of this (among other tunes) and had a thoroughly relaxing morning together.



And it was very, very nice. Nice has been in short supply around here lately.

Oh how wonderful! It's great to have NICE moments. Hand on to them!
I have enjoyed my "NICE" time the past 20 hours. That guy I gave birth to is on his way home and I do hope the niceness continues.

My kids used to get up at the asscrack of dawn. However, since the time change, it is more like the taint of dawn.
Also, nice? Nice.....(Imagine Joey Tribiani saying that)

You are among the blessed. Sleep or not.
