Today I woke up 3 hours earlier than I had in two months.
Today I folded up the futon and cleaned up blankets from a 2 month long sleepover.
Today I cooked a "real" breakfast for the first time in 2 months.
Today I cleaned the house and it stayed clean.
Today I ate a grown up lunch that excluded peanut butter and noodles in any form.
Today I washed swimsuits and towels for the first time in 2 months.
Today I made up for taking a spiritual hiatus in the past 2 months and listened to conference
talks while cleaning a quiet house and was reminded that "our everydays will soon become our yesterdays" and was grateful that I made the most out of our "everydays" in the past two months.
Today my little buddies started school.
Today I was sad. I was glad I was sad, usually I can't wait for school to start but I really made an effort and put alot of planning into our summer and it made me sad that it had come to an end.
Today I missed them.
(However, as soon as they walked in the door they let 6 hours of bottled up energy go and the chaos that ensued made me realize that although I missed them today, tomorrow I think I'll appreciate the quiet house a little bit more.)
