It’s been an uninteresting day for the most part. I was essentially unimpressed throughout most of it, but there were a few highlights.
I was pleasantly surprised to have my husband show up during his lunch, even if it was just to return a booster seat he accidentally ran off with and to pick up fishing gear. Regardless, I was happy to see him even though it was a short visit.
Later I spent a good 45 minutes on the treadmill while the offspring enjoyed the kid center at the gym. While I worked out, through the glory of Netflix on my phone, I watched Destination Truth, a SyFy show that I’ve only watched a handful of times.
I’m not sure why I landed on that show except maybe because I had to find something quick since I didn’t plan ahead and also because I happen to enjoy listening to Joshua Gates speak. I love his narrations! I actually saw him on an episode or two of Ghosthunters and those were my favorite episodes. So, I watched an episode of Josh searching for a long lost dinosaur and a mermaid *Spoiler Alert -- They don’t find either! Shocking, I know!
After the gym, and a dinner, the kids bickered as usual. But once they were off to bed, I felt like I needed time with my husband. I invited him to take a walk with me... around the yard. Well, we couldn’t really go anywhere with the kids in bed so I improvised. Walking together was something we always did when we were dating and we still enjoy it when we get the chance. I miss those long walks, so I wanted to have a little bit of that tonight. We just made a handful of passes around the yard and talked about whatever was on our mind. It was a welcomed escape!
So while everyday may not have big whoppin’ smiles, I appreciate the moments that did ease my day and take away stress, there’s always plenty of that around. I am grateful for the smaller moments as well...
