Then I went on another on a walk with my youngest later that afternoon, as seen below.
Those walks were the highlight of the day. However, Chris did make me pancakes for breakfast and Soren made me a sweet card. But I was fighting a cold, poor me, and there was a birthday party that afternoon to prevent us from making any grand plans. Yes, I give up MY one day for the children (poor me, again, huh?). I did spend a lot of time reflecting on how grateful I am for them, and their healthy, happy lives. It's truly an honor being a mother, despite the frustration and exhaustion.
Anyway, I did manage to accomplish a lot on Saturday while S was at t-ball. Vacuuming, cleaning and prepping fruits and veggies, and harvesting our first head of lettuce from the garden. Having stocked the fridge the night before, I had the makings for a tasty, out-of-the-ordinary (at least in our house) salad dressing for these special greens.
