When I was a kid, the admonition to be home before dark was such a drag. Now, though, there are days when I'd give a hefty sum to be able to step foot into my home before the sun sets. It rarely happens and because of my workload, the past ten days have been early to work and late to bed.
Yesterday, though? I ended up leaving to pick up the kids at school and for once, I didn't have anything pressing to return to the office to do. I took full advantage. We ordered pizza rather me staggering around the kitchen looking for something to whip together. I was able, instead, to clear the decks in the kitchen and catch up some laundry duties.
Aside from a teenager's freak out dealing with county science fair registration paperwork, it proved a nice evening.
