Snapshot: My children are both napping in their beds, my house is much cleaner than it was an hour ago, I am drinking tea and looking out my big picture window in the front room at the vibrant fall coloured mountainside, I just ate way too much caramel candied popcorn that my mom gave me and I am having this overwhelming urge to take up jogging!
We are back to being a family of four, our first visitors now come and gone. We had a super visit with my mom and Sam while they were here. We were able to share a couple of great days in and around Logan. Some of the highlights included our trip out to Bear Lake and drive through the Logan canyon, a visit to Gossner's cheese factory and Isla's first taste of cheese curd, grooving in the kitchen while playing the harmonica, playing hairdresser and seamstress with Grandma Lady and a sendoff coffee date at the Crumb Brothers Bakery.
The normalcy of our days set in just as soon as they left town this morning: Robin being at school all day and evening long, me being stuck in the house, held captive by two small sleeping children. I suppose I am feeling a bit down, perhaps even a bit lonely.
There will be ups and there will be downs, I just better stay away from the candied corn on the down days or I'll have a real enough reason to take up jogging.
