I watched snow fall on the first day of spring today, did crazy amounts of laundry and cleaning, felt overwhelmed by a workload of sorts and errands and plans and dinner. Somewhere in the mix, I cleaned toilets and scrubbed tubs and talked to a friend as she remembered her father, and later another as we made plans for pictures. It was nice to take a break and skate with friends this afternoon. And it was awesome to see my kids holding hands with their friends around the rink. This Friday night has now become a night off with leftovers--and an extra glass of wine.
