More hours in a day

Boy do I love 3 day weekends!

Spent this 3 day weekend running ourselves ragged, in a good way. Seems the weekends are always far busier than the week. We set up and held a garage sale, had our tub re-glazed (the guy was there for 7 hours but damn does the tub look good!), cleaned, laundry, ran kids to work and practice, grocery shopped, fixed a few minor things on the airplane, Mark took Caleb and his best friend, Holden, as well as Zia and her best friend, Ally, flying. I videotaped and took pictures of them. I love taking pictures and stopping time with our memories. And we got to finally enjoy our new hot tub last night almost exactly 4 months to the day from the last time we got to sit in our old hot tub (before our house fire).

I ABSOLUTELY¬†LOVE MY LIFE! I wouldn’t change a single thing about it!

Except…..

…..maybe I’d add more hours in the day. Or an extra day a week. Just so we can come together, all of us, as a family and enjoy each others company without running around. I’m really thankful summer’s coming so we can start planning our weekend camping trips, spending time out trolling the canal on our boat watching the kids and Mark do crazy tricks off the back into the water, taking our pups with us on our outdoor adventures, spending lazy afternoons in our backyard oasis surrounded by flowers and jumping in the pool, cooking out on the grill yummy Chivetta’s chicken, hot dogs and hamburgers, laying on the concrete pavers soaking up the sun and drying off after a dip in the pool to cool off, planting flowers and wearing shorts, a tank top and flip flops.

At the age of 45, I can honestly say that I have the life I’ve always dreamed of!

I couldn’t ask for anything more.
