It has been a hard and heavy week and I am ready to hear the corporate America door close behind me and soak in the goodness of my family for a few days. Our plans include barefeet, returning overdue library books, tackling laundry, pulling weeds and balancing little bodies on the balls of my feet while they pretend to be airplanes. We plan to spoil our appetites with frozen yogurt before lunch and to take a trip to our favorite field in all of Raleigh for some wide open and wild galloping. A healthy mix of the have-to-do with the want-to-do should have me in top fighting shape before another work week begins.
Can I tell you two more things that I am ready for? Running my fingers through the wiley, strawberry blonde curls on my son’s head and listening to Dovie’s funny “what I did today” recap. Every work day, when I am away from them, I crave those simple, precious exchanges.
Friday afternoons are most definitely the worse - as the anticipation of getting home to them is enough to drive me crazy sometimes. Hurry up, weekend.
