Balance Cometh Before the Fall

Balance. It does a body good.

Today, a crazy, once-in-a-leap-year rarity occured, and, wham, bam, ta da, we had a modicum of balance in our life today. Or maybe just I did.

All I know is that today it felt like everyone got a little something they needed. Kind of like an eclipse, things miraculously and mysteriously aligned. My husband's job responsibilities meant he needed to leave work early for something closer to home, and when it was over, it made sense for him to just come home early. I'm on summer hours, so I come home an hour early. Shazam, this means all four of us convened at our house and it was not even dark outside, nor was it the HURRY UP, wrap-up-this-day-and-start-working-on-the-next-day time.

Wow, all I can say is that when I get to have a little jog, and the kids get to have a little stroller ride and bike time, and my husband gets to soak in the bath, and I am blogging before my eyelids need toothpicks propping them up, and it isn't even a weekend... well, it's time to buy Lottery tickets, because I am in luck. I feel like a fresh new self.

Balanced. WOW. decnalaB.
