Along with a good pair of earphones. ;)
So um, I'm exhausted, but I wanted to say a little bit about today.
First of all, I love my mother. And I hate seeing her beat herself up because she doesn't have enough money to buy everything we need all the time (and by that I mean like I need new glasses, not food or clothes or anything super essential). She is my hero, and my future kids will be lucky if I am half the mother she is. Just putting that out there.
Second of all, Blake looks like a little boy now! It's FREAKY!! I mean, I know he's not even 21 months old yet, but he just looks so much bigger. I guess it's kind of throwing me off because I haven't seen him since Fall Break.
And lastly, (well, side note - the word 'lastly' just looks weird in writing. Is that right?) when Mom and I got home tonight, I was almost instantly reminded why it's a good thing that I rarely come home, but I honestly don't even care about that. I'm determined to enjoy this break, to catch my breath, to smile, and to realize how lucky I am to have the life that I do even when I feel like the people in it are driving me batty. ;)
Isn't what this holiday is all about in the first place? :)
