Day 985 – Thankful for a Beautifully Balanced Mix of Family Time, One on One with Family Time, and Alone Time

Whew, how’s that for a mouthful? 😉

The past 24 hours have been a beautifully balanced mix of family time. Last night we did church, dinner, and an escape room as a family. All four of us spent time relaxing and laughing in what will most likely be the last time were able to do that for approximately two weeks. Becky is heading out of town for work this week and next and Dominic has Scouts. It was great to have time to the four of us to all be together.

This morning Becky and I took the dogs for a walk and had some nice quiet time. The time to the two of us was perfectly uneventful, just the way I like it once in a while.

Dominic and I had time to ourselves on the trip to Scout camp. The drive was pretty chill, just some time for us to talk about his week and Scouts. Nothing crazy, but some great time together with just the two of us.

Gavin and I have already had a lot of time to just the two of us today and we’ve got a lot more where that came from later this week. Between grocery shopping, playing some games, and just chilling we’ve been able to spend time hanging out and singing Strumbellas songs. Pretty much perfect!

After our walk this morning I split off from Becky and the girls and went for a run on my own. With my headphones in and the Strumbellas’ concert list loaded up I pounded out one of the best runs I’ve had in a while. While driving back from dropping off Dominic I blasted the concert playlist again and proceeded to have an incredible car concert all by myself. It was awesome!

As I wrap up the day I can’t help but smile at all of the opportunities I’ve had to spend time with my family, together and separately, today. There’s a magic to having all of us together, a specialness to having one on one time, and chillness to having alone time. Today I had all of the above and I’ll be going to bed with a smile.
