As it turns out, I have lots more to say. I was just in a funk and nothing gets me out of a funk like canceling my plans because the kids are coming home early from their 24 hour visit with their Mom.
I was actually just about to take Maggie to the trail, go for a nice long walk and clear my head.
She hasn’t been on a walk since last Fall because she’s very allergic to road salt and we have to wait until that part of the year is over.
I was putting my shoes on and getting ready to tell Maggie, when the phone rang. I have no idea why they wanted to come home but they had made it most of the afternoon and I’m always happy to have my boys back.
It’s okay because truthfully, I don’t know what to do with myself when I’m not taking care of them.
I did ask them why they were home early and apparently, it was Elliott that wanted to come home. When I asked him why he wanted to come home, he just said because. I was like whoa, whoa, whoa….. You can’t use that line until you have kids of your own…
Apparently, I was the only one to find the humor in that. Elliott was unamused…..
Anyway, I think once the boys sort of adjust to the transition home, we’ll go for a hike. That usually puts everyone in a better mood. I haven’t decided if we’re gonna take Maggie with us or not but we’ll see….
