one of those days...
today was one of those days...
one of those days where nothing really gets done.
where you count the rings inside that morning cup of coffee as you finally finish it at 5 in the afternoon.
where your "healthy" lunch consists of a slice of toast and cheese. on a paper plate nonetheless, because you will surely keel over backwards if you have to clean another plate.
where as soon as you sit down to catch a breath, another dog needs to go pee or a little man suddenly decides that playing on his own is only half as fun.
where the only productive thing you've done all day was load the dishwasher.
where you never change out of those food stained, drooled on sweats or do your hair, let alone your make up.
where you realize 3 zits have made their home on your face when you don't even remember the last time you had one.
where plans you made fall through and you have to make new plans.
where the only trip you take is the one to the bathroom.
where nap time is spent talking to parents all the way across that big pond, and you're reminded of how much you miss them and how much you can't wait to go on that trip in only a few short weeks.
where you chase after that almost toddler all day long and somehow it's perfectly ok that you're not getting anything else done.
becuase when it comes down to it, seeing that smile and hearing those giggles when he gets his finger stuck inside a duplo block make everything that you thought was so important seem so trivial.
and hearing the voices of the ones who mean the most to you makes you realize how blessed you are and how much you have to look forward to this summer.
yes, today was one of those days :)
