Sometimes, you just got to do what feels right, regardless of what your sanity is telling you. Today was one of those moments for me. I was in my office trying to catch-up on some work and a family called me asking if I wanted to take my guys out…ready for this…cardboard sledding! Immediately I smiled. I had NO idea how I was even going to make it up the dumb hill, but I didn’t care. I called Steve, took my meds, dressed the boys (okay…I must admit, it was chilly here today…we were in LONG sleeves…that’s COLD for Florida!) and off we went! The hill was surrounded with people and this is the best time of year to find cardboard! WE HAD A BLAST (Thanks for calling Angie!)! I even enjoyed a few rides (yes…as in more than 1) down the hill…and I’m game for doing this again! My guys were all smiles and we didn’t stop there…we ended up swinging by Steak & Shake to use our gift card on the way home! It was a completely un-planned, spur of the moment kind of day that our family MUCH needed.
I really enjoyed seeing my boys running, laughing and playing. I enjoyed ignoring my sanity and being right down there with them! I’m sure I’ll pay for it tomorrow…but right now its all smiles here!
