Five AM Is Too Early To Remember Things

March 6, 2012


Things like camera cords for uploading photos
or a proper lunch
or pretty much anything other than
a coat for the cold
my wallet
and a quick brush for the teeth to remove the nightly allotment of teeth sweaters.
*gross

This week is five straight days of twelve hour days away from home
that look like some kind of montage of 
leaving around six
tired eyes
bus driving
naps in the car
computer work at the library
errands
more driving
husband shuffling papers and bending metal
and then collapsing at home after six.

It's in these moments that I keep my eyes fixed on the weekend.
When date nights happen.
Like this weekend when we put the kids to bed
popped corn and fizzed root beer floats
then cuddled on to couch to watch Zorro II on the big screen.
It's really such a lovely life.  And I love the quiet moments to remember it.

Psst!  Weekend.  Please hurry up and get here.

  12. 5am is WAY too early! I had to get up at 5:30 once this weekend it through everything off. If you're not a morning, you're not a morning person! Have a great weekend & date night :)
