The Great Escape
we’ve had a very busy start to our fault. between the jewish holidays, a michigan wedding, quitting one job, starting another two jobs, running the booth at a street fair, entertaining houseguest after houseguest after houseguest after houseguest after…you get the idea…it becomes difficult to find time to breathe, let alone do laundry, keep a clean house, cook healthy recipes and shower regularly. most of all, my time with the little one has been chaotic. there have been no afternoons spent at the park, no early mornings blowing bubbles, no fridays making homemade challah, and very few banana snuggles.
but tuesday afternoon, we changed all that. we’ve got a bit (bit) of a reprieve in houseguests (my brother left in the morning and my father in law returns later this week) and so after naptime we jumped into the car to plan our escape. to the county park we went. i didn’t look at my watch, and i didn’t check email. we didn’t rush. we had no trail that needed to be conquered. instead we threw pebbles into the stream and smelled wild flowers.
we’ve missed our routine. both of us.
