Ahhhh….Back To My Controlled Craziness


I feel like this is my first day back to my so-called normal life. It feels good. We got through spring break. The Easter Bunny came. The taxes are done (and getting mailed today). Today is a day of sweeping, mopping and catching up on laundry.

I don’t know why the holiday threw me for such a loop. We had three solid days of coloring Easter eggs. The weather wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t nice enough for the kids to play outside all day, either. Everything just took a little bit longer with two kids around. Becca headed back to school today (with tears, of course).

I did federal, state and local tax returns for three different people. This is the first year I dealt with TONS of business write offs, K-1′s and what not. Because of that, I had a couple extra glasses of wine at Easter dinner. I felt it a little the next day.

So, here I am, back to normal. Back to homework tonight. Getting Downey’s House ready for summer and (hopefully) the surge in business with the deck getting ready to open. Quite honestly, I don’t really have a topic for today’s post. Just wanted to share the fact that I’m feeling pretty peaceful. Even though my normal life consists of running around, I’ve gotten used to a certain level of craziness. Which makes me think…

What will I do when the kids have flown the nest? Yes, my house will be a little more clean. I’ll enjoy a little more reading. But I already have the feeling that I’ll be a little bored.

Well, and much more rested.

So, for the next few days (or weeks…or until a child pushes me over the edge) I’m going to enjoy the hell out of them. I enjoy their ages. I enjoy their humor. And then there’s the cuddles and the kisses.
