Like everyone else in the world, between the boys’ sports, events, and school projects and my own meetings, errands, and random commitments, I feel like it has been forever since I have had a night to sit, book in lap, and simply relax.
We came home from school in a timely fashion yesterday, the boys rode bikes with the neighbors, we cooked on the grill, ate down back on the patio, and then….as soon as the boys were in bed…I actually found a whole hour to sit on the side deck and read. There may have been one Summer Shandy involved as well. And…even better….it could have been longer if the sun didn’t set and the bugs didn’t come out.
I will take many more evenings just like this, please.
