“…this perfect day”

September 7, 2011 @ 8:10 pm | Filed under:

Scott took the girls to the beach today. “I love being freelance,” he wrote on Facebook later. “(No deadlines were harmed in the making of this perfect day.)”

I thought I was going to do a massive girls’-closet overhaul while Huck binged on Thomas the Tank Engine. Not so. He ran me ragged, that cherub, that imp, playing cars and reading books and watering plants. It was, needless to say, delightful. The closet is still a disaster. It probably would’ve been again in a week or two anyway.

    Closet, schlmoset. Huck did the right thing, distracting you. Proves his genius.

    I had a day like that yesterday…the laundry was piled up, and the house is a mess, but the ocean was calling, a glorious late summer Maine day…my little imp spent an hour frolicking in the waves…the mess lived to see another day!
