"Mommy, did you see? Some of your flowers boomed! I mean, bloomed!"
What a long, crazy week this was. I've been shadow boxing with the negative thoughts for a little bit again. Then today, the sun came out, the weather warmed up and I found a really great new CD -- the soundtrack to Happy Feet! I know. It's silly. Especially since I've never actually *seen* the movie. I've only heard the kids watching on their way to/from school in the externally flameless Mommyvan. Seriously, though, the soundtrack has some really upbeat music in it. Music that makes me want to choreograph some silly (but totally fun) dance for my kids and I to perform on the deck that Hubby built (the kids use the deck as a stage after dark, pretending the light in the backyard is a spotlight). I listened to that CD all afternoon.
Way back a hundred million years ago, or maybe it was just 25 years ago, I used to take dance lessons... I loved them. I miss dancing, I really do. Lately, I've been tempted to join a jazzercise class... is that too cliche? Do you have to be a senior citizen to do that? It would be good exercise.
Anyway... Oh! Oh! Guess what?! The pictures the littles had taken at the beginning of April came in today, and really... our kids are SO freakin adorable! Even though I could probably sign over my next paycheck to pay for ALL the pictures I want, I won't do that... but really, the pictures couldn't be any cuter.
So, yeah, today was a good day. I had the sun, new, fun music, warm weather, pictures of my kids looking sweet, angelic and adorable... I *feel* the Spring booming in me. Oh, how I've missed that.
