Awaiting Free Time

My son started Kindergarten this past week, and my daughter starts preschool very soon. I'll have more time than I know what to do with, which will be in stark contrast to the insanity of the past few years. I found projects in the closet that have literally been put off for 5 years.

If you ask me what I've done over the past few years, I couldn't tell you. I've tried to figure it out, but I can't tease out the specifics. The best I can say is that I've cooked and dealt with food a lot (buy, properly store, prep, cook), cleaned up after messy people, and tried to entertain young minds without stressing everyone out. The last one is the hardest because young minds have short attention spans and you can seldom correctly guess what they will truly enjoy and what they will scoff at. I've seen a lot of the latter.

But I digress. It's been fun and I've learned a lot. And now, I'm looking forward to a few moments of quiet to read, write, and so on. (I forgot what else, so I'll sum it up with "and so on.)

More soon.
