Living it up
Monday, July 24, 2017
I am having a brutal summer at work but a lovely one at home - the college kid is with us for 6 weeks, in between his previous lease ending and his new dorm opening up. Both kids are working full-time this summer but we are getting some quality family time in nonetheless. This month we went to 2 concerts together (including Queen, which was epic!) and a couple of international soccer games. And so many meals together - what a treat! I get to pepper foreheads with good-night kisses at bedtime; I get to poke and tickle whenever the urge arises. I get to cook favorite dishes and I get to ask lots of probing personal questions. I get to fall asleep at night knowing everyone is safe - yes, even though there is no time for a vacation this year, I am totally living it up this summer.
