I try to never take breaks for granted

It was a pretty quiet evening. The kids were at their grandparents, and I’m writing this after sleeping in till 10:30 AM. That felt really good, and I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity.

Lizze and I went for a short walk last night before picking up dinner and settling into watching Wandering Earth on Netflix.

I can’t stress enough how important self-care is.



We don’t really have any plans for today, but I would like to get some things done around the house. I know rest is important, but I also want the kids to come home to a house that’s in a little better shape. I’m going to work on some organizational type things and then maybe go walking this evening.

I’m really thankful for the break, and I know not everyone gets them. It’s something I try never to take for granted.

    Just found your blog. Plan to visit often. Two on the spectrum at home. Wife home schools four of six. God bless her. May be requesting advice now and then. Glad to find you. Thank you so much for sharing your life with the awesom-tistic world.
