LOL – I am still laughing at how I’ve found a way to fit this much life into one day! The alarm is going to ring a little earlier than I’d like it to, but what’s a dude to do? The little extra tired feeling is a very small price to pay for a wonderfully jam packed day.
What I’m most thankful for today are days like this. After burning the candle on both ends (in a healthy way) I’m in a hurry to write my blog and go to bed. I really don’t want to short change the day, but the day was so packed I’m exhausted! To follow up from yesterday’s blog post maybe I should deem it “The Kreiling Paradox.”
Living a day to its fullest, so much so that by the end you’d really like to write about all of it, but you’re so exhausted that you rush through your gratitude for it because you’re ready to crash in bed.The Kreiling Paradox
Long story short, I am also thankful for saying yes to a hike. There’s a time sensitive project I wanted to work on in my woodshed today, but Becky and Gavin were going to go for a hike while Dominic went snowboarding. I followed my own advice – when someone asks you to go on vacation with them, exercise with them, or hike with them, the answer is always yes. To this day I’ve yet to regret going on a hike instead of doing whatever else I was going to do.
We headed out to Wildcat Mountain State Park and enjoyed a winter wonderland completely devoid of anyone else. The only company we had on the trails were the three deer watching us from a hillside. Being in the wild is always music for my soul, the snow added even more peacefulness and serenity to the time out there. I’m excited to head back down to that neck of the woods later this week.
After getting home I went up and got to work on my project. Part of it didn’t turn out as I’d like so I started over which was simultaneously frustrating and liberating at the same time. The hours flew by as I made tremendous progress in spite of the do over.
Before sitting down to blog I opted for a board game with the boys. We’d played Wingspan for the first time last night and LOVED it so we fired it back up again. I probably should have looked at the clock before starting the game, but again, I’m so grateful for the time I had with the boys playing games and joking around. What an excellent way to wrap up the weekend.
Time to crash and enjoy falling asleep before my head hits the pillow!
