A Good Day Sigh

You know that kind of day that just makes you sigh with a pleasant sense of satisfaction? This was that kind of day. And I didn't even take a half a pill. Because I forgot.

I decided to kidnap my husband and keep him away from his job. Which has been a huge HEADACHE this week. A headache and really, a heartache too. More disappointment and limbo and frustration. And so, rather than let him go off to sit at a desk and do work he didn't much believe in, we ran away. First to take the kids to school, and Charleigh to her playdate. Then to IHOP for gigantic plates of soul-comforting breakfast food and a jug of coffee. Then we went exploring hither and yon and I refused to let my husband even think about working on any worky stuff. Bookstores. Little Galleries. Coffee shops. The Library. (and maybe a thrift store or two just for me). Then we picked up the kids and headed to Lake Fayetteville where we explored some trails we'd never seen before. With the fresh air smell on us and our bellies growling, we finished off the daylight with wings for supper. And now it's time for all our favorite TV shows.

Every once in a while, you have to run away. I don't know about him, but I feel like a million, sparkly bucks.
