For me, today felt like my last day of spring break...even though tomorrow really is.
This morning began with bringing Q to bed with me at 6am while Chris got ready to leave the house to run a 5K in Athens. Q and I were sleeping soundly when the girls came bounding into the room at 8:30 this morning. Argh! And so the day began.
I took the girls for a room shopping trip to IKEA. They, apparently, were very serious about the green and red/black rooms. I thought for sure we would get there and they would revert back to the pink (for Casey) and blue (for Chan) that they have been doing for the past 6 years, but no. They were actually surprisingly good IKEA shoppers. It may have been that I prepared myself for the worst. So we now have dressers and nightstands and wall stickers and lamps that hang from the ceilings and throw pillows...new bedding and pillows...the list goes on. We have never let them have quite this much say in their rooms and it is very exciting for them.
Then tonight Molly and I went to our friend Dea's birthday party. We all went to high school together - wlong with 2 other girls that were at the party. It is crazy to think that I have been friends with these people for over half my life...that the time that I have known them is longer than the time that I didn't.
And now I am very tired. And I have a long day tomorrow - church, grocery shopping, preparing for the week and mourning the end of spring break.
