So we all know that Wednesday was just a rough day around here. And yesterday was so much better.
While I was laying on the "beach" at the lake yesterday (frying myself to a crisp, as I later realized) I was thinking about how good of a day it was turning out to be. I mean really, who could beat this:
The kids were actually playing together, after being at battle with each other less than 24 hours before. Sure, there was bickering, but it was just the usual stuff - and I believe that the fists only flew a few times, and usually in a more lighthearted manner. I can handle that.
Jared is even getting a little more brave in the water, although he's still not super comfortable with it. I really need to get him (all of them, actually) into swim lessons again.
The weather was gorgeous, and the scenery around the lake just begged for more pictures, but I was limited to the swimming area. One of these days I'm going to go out there and just take a billion pictures all over the place.
Sure, it might have been 106 degrees out, but the humidity was low and there was a good breeze coming off of the water, so it was just wonderful...
While days like Wednesday make me question my ability as a single parent, days like yesterday make me realize that I can do it. I might lose any bit of sanity that is still hiding in my brain, but I'll make it through it all.
